Port Glasgow homes cleared for construction
April 1 2019
River Clyde Homes are to build 226 flats and terraced houses on the outer edge of Port Glasgow, on site of the former St Stephen’s High School, after planning consent was granted.
The £35m build seeks to retain green space as a priority, introducing a courtyard, shared streets and perimeter planting, with planter crib walls used where there are significant changes in level.
Formed from brick and metal composite cladding the properties seek to tie-in with surrounding homes, with particular emphasis to the treatment of gable ends.
In a statement Chameleon, the project designers, wrote: “The proposal seeks to address Kilmacolm Road with all end gables having windows, activating the street edge. All non-overlooked spaces have been dealt with by either facing units onto them or using end gable windows to overlook them.
“End gables orientated towards views or opportunities have been activated with windows to fully maximise the potential of the site. All end gables to Kilmacolm Road have a unique treatment so they address the street, creating a rhythmic frontage to this edge of the proposal.”
The homes will be built by Cruden Building.
River Clyde Homes will build 750 properties over the next five years, all to a common design standard
