Urban Union progress Pollokshaws properties
February 20 2020
Urban Union has begun work 137 affordable homes in Pollokshaws, Glasgow, in the latest project to be undertaken on by the regeneration specialist.
Pollokshaws Living will deliver modern accommodation on a site at Shawbridge Street, formerly occupied by tower blocks, with a range of apartments and terraced homes offered for occupation from 2023.
Designed by Barton Willmore the red-brick properties will offer easy access to Pollok Country Park and includes a range of streetscape and public realm enhancements.
Councillor Kenny McLean commented: “While there is a great deal of housebuilding taking place across Glasgow now, this development at Pollokshaws is one of the most dramatic examples in Glasgow of an area being transformed through the creation of these 137 new homes.”
The £25m project is a direct successor to the Laurieston Living development in the Gorbals.
