Bridgeton Cross regeneration steps up with 68 new homes

Bridgeton Cross in Glasgow's east end has taken another major step forward with the completion of 68 homes for social rent designed by Elder & Cannon Architects.

The Olympia Street build was completed by the JR Group on behalf of the Link Group, furthering ongoing regeneration in the area.

JR construction director, John Murdoch, said: “When we took on the development at Olympia Street, we were conscious of just how tight the site itself was, but we relish a challenge – especially one that presents an opportunity to work on a project that will leave a substantial legacy.

“The vision behind Olympia Street was to create a sustainable collection of residences that people would want to live in. And, with the homes aimed at people with diverse yet specific needs, there was a real chance to use innovative design and construction technology to ensure the finished development was as integrated as possible and set up to be enjoyed by future generations.

“At Olympia Street, we are proud to have built an exemplar model of affordable inner-city housing with a distinct sense of place.”

Already fully occupied residents enjoy access to a common landscaped garden overseen by RankinFraser landscape architects.

Decent builds, but a weird layout. That corner block completely ignores the corner.
