Maryhill cross at landmark housing proposition
December 5 2018
Maryhill Housing Association has pledged to engage with local people over its plans to build 65 properties for rent and sale in the north Glasgow district.
Proposals penned by Elder & Cannon Architects employ the practices trademark dark brick to dress four separate blocks of accommodation set amidst landscaped grounds on the junction of Maryhill and Cowal Road’s.
Maryhill Cross has been left as wasteland following demolition of landmark Victorian buildings, attracting the attention of the local housing association as it seeks to meet tenant demand.
Some locals have reacted angrily to the arrival of ‘giant grey boxes’ in their midst however, arguing against the scale and potential adverse impact on traffic congestion.
Others however came out in support of the ambitious scheme, preferring it to another anonymous ‘low rise monolithic block’.
Housing officials will now meet with community groups to discuss its vision.
