“Up to 700 ‘custom-built’homes lined up for Port Dundas canal corridor
January 26 2017
Spearheaded by Bigg Regeneration, HTA Design, Scottish Canals and Igloo Regeneration Fund 100 Acre Hill will revitalise an area of canalside land to the north of the city centre which has lain vacant since the demise of a distillery in 2010.
Many of the properties could be custom-built with the devlopers keen to offer people the chance to design their own homes while knitting together the disjointed urban fabric between the city centre, Sighthill and Possilpark.
A report to councillors on the regeneration bid read: ”It is proposed some areas will be custom-built, offering individuals the opportunity to design their own unique home. The aim is to deliver a residential led, mixed-use scheme together with adventure sports.
“There are some fantastic spaces at 100 Acre Hill which are perfect for urban sports.”
Bigg Regeneration have received £5.5m of City Deal funding to remediate contaminated land, enabling it to be utilised for residential and commercial use.
