Shettleston HA moves on site with over-55 homes
January 7 2015
Due for delivery in November the 29 new homes are being targeted at the over 55’s and are arranged around a shared amenity space off Fernan Street. Ground floor tenants will have access to a private terrace and raised planting beds.
In their design statement the architects noted: “The development has the proposed blocks set back from the footpaths to create a landscaped buffer zone to the road side, while providing a safe, enclosed private courtyard. It is a sloping site which has been made relatively flat using retaining walls to north along Old Shettleston Road and south to Denbeck Street. The proposed development will replicate this to create a level courtyard with communal amenity space.”
The two storey scheme replaces a former care home, demolished in 2013.
