Amenity first Castlemilk pavilion blocks prioritise active travel
August 13 2020
AS Homes are pushing ahead with residential development in Glasgow's Castlemilk area with a planning submission detailing their intent to erect 36 flats for social rent on a brownfield site.
A triangular plot at Carmunnock Road, formerly occupied by Castlemilk Parish Church, has been earmarked for the build, which presents a challenging drop in level of around 10m.
This has necessitated delivering the required accommodation across a series of three pavilion blocks providing frontages to all sides while providing ready access at different site levels.
In a statement the architects wrote that they would prioritise green space, saying: "Whilst the site itself occupies an area of low transport amenity, areas of base transport amenity can be found directly to the north and south.
"To encourage the use of public transport and cycle routes integrated bike storage units and suitable landscaping will be incorporated into the design."
Adjoining a recently completed residential development at Glenacre Drive the project has been overseen by George Buchanan Architects to maximise amenity space.
