Govan rebuilds lost density with 47 amenity flats

Mast Architects and CCG have teamed up for an amenity housing development in Govan, Glasgow.

A planning application calls for 47 flats to be built on a 0.265-hectare site on the junction of Langlands Road and Golspie Street, on land currently in use as car parking for Govan Cross Shopping Centre.

Spread across two buildings connected by a first-floor amenity deck the homes will combine lift access to all floors with parking for up to 15 vehicles.

CCG director, Calum Murray, said: “The supply of affordable, energy-efficient homes that are capable of supporting Scotland’s ageing population is becoming more important by the day. A site like Langlands, which has been led entirely by CCG’s in-house developments team, with its immediate access to amenities and transport links, strikes a perfect blend of place-making and housing designed for particular needs."

MAST architects director, Mark Johnstone, added: “Langlands will provide much-needed warm and healthy homes whilst also helping to redefine a fragmented piece of local townscape. The addition of high-quality communal space in the form of the amenity deck is also a vital component in creating a modern design for the urban environment."

Subject to planning approval work is expected to commence on-site next year.
