Sighthill regeneration picks up steam
April 19 2018Sighthill Transformational Regeneration Area.
Overseen by LDA Design and Collective Architecture the £250m masterplan will replace 10 former high-rise blocks with low-rise housing, augmenting 140 GHA homes already delivered, with a school campus, a ‘street in the sky’ footbridge spanning the M8 motorway and a road bridge to Port Dundas.
A network of pedestrian and cycle routes, public spaces, allotments and parkland will be delivered in advance of the Keepmoat development breaking ground, incorporating a mix of lochans, burns and wetlands for drainage.
LDA Design Director Kirstin Taylor said: “This is a key moment in the history of Sighthill. We are delighted to have the opportunity to further progress the plans to create a welcoming place to call home that is well connected to the rest of the city.
“This was once a very close-knit community. In developing the masterplan, we wanted to create an accessible, social and safe place to live with a distinct identity that builds on this historic spirit of togetherness. As far as I am aware, it is the single largest landscape-led regeneration scheme in Scotland.”
