Riverfront Pollokshaws homes complete

A high profile southside housing development has taken in shape in Glasgow with completion nearing at CCG’s Riverford Gardens development in Pollokshaws.

Built alongside the White Cart River at Auldhouse Park the 156-home development includes a mix of apartments and three-storey terraced villas, conceived as a contemporary twist on a traditional terrace by Mast Architects.

CCG Homes managing director Calum Murray commented: “Pollokshaws, a transformational regeneration area, has seen significant investment over the last few years with Riverford Gardens now being a major part of that. 

“We have invested a great deal in delivering a quality and energy performance standard that sets us apart from other developments in the city.”

The full 2.36ha development is expected to complete in the autumn and comes as the new build sector delivers the highest increase in both starts and completions since 2008.

Full completion is expected by October 2020

The first photo looks extremely similar to the 1980s Balfour Beatty townhouses at Mansionhouse Gardens in Langside, right down to the window frames. South side vernacular, or a lazy rehashing of Eighties designs?

Cannot believe an area like Pollokshaws with such a rich heritage - originally having a village feel - is now subjected to yet more so-called “progressive” builds. Modern Architecture is dead in Glasgow and these designs - replicated in many other areas too - have been built solely for profit

#2 ...solely for profit? Where did you read this? Do others know? You should take this shocking news to the papers! Folk will never stand for it!

My only gripe with these are the garage doors not being the same colour as the windows and doors!

I'd take one of these any day over a Barratt home.

@Swampy... ironic that it could be you who is a 12 year-old by the way you chose to articulate that question... If you bothered to even process what I said, I was referring to the fact that a lot of Glasgow’s current builds revolve and is influenced by profit - you don’t see any charming character like what a basic 20th century tenement has. You must have some link to this development or similar elsewhere, as clearly you sound offended

#5 - the idea that past development wasn't solely motivated by profit is pretty naive. Property - particularly housing - is and always has been a massive industry.

Wasn't part of this development damaged by fire recently?
