Notorious Bellgrove Hotel to lead regeneration of Glasgow's Gallowgate
April 1 2021
Lowther Homes, with funding from Glasgow City Council, has purchased the notorious Bellgrove Hotel in Glasgow's east end in a first step towards developing the site as part of the Gallowgate Transformational Regeneration Area.
Plans to deliver homes for mid-market rent at the B-listed 1930s building will now be developed to complement ongoing regeneration of the area.
GHA chair Bernadette Hewitt said: “GHA has already built over 200 fantastic new homes in Gallowgate and demolished the old Whitevale and Bluevale multi-storey blocks. The Bellgrove unlocks the potential for us not only to improve the lives of the people currently living in the hostel but also to continue the transformation of the community with a further phase of new affordable housing for local people.”
Fifty vulnerable men currently housed in the hostel will be offered new homes with assistance from Glasgow's Health & Social Care Partnership.
