Funding secured for Hamiltonhill ‘urban suburb’
February 12 2019
Queens Cross Housing Association have won £40m in funding from M&G Investments to progress plans for an ‘urban suburb’ in Hamiltonhill, Glasgow.
A masterplan prepared by Collective Architecture calls for the delivery of 600 homes, half of which will be managed by Queens Cross at affordable rents with the remainder released for private sale.
Development of the site has been made possible by the delivery of a new drainage system connected to the Forth & Clyde Canal.
Queens Cross chief executive Shona Stephen said: “As part of the development this investment will deliver new park and green space along with community and commercial developments that will transform long-term vacant and derelict land.”
Site preparations are expected to begin in the spring.
