riverside homes

Glasgow City Council has given the green light to developer Swan Group for plans to deliver 151 new affordable riverside homes

Planning consent has been granted by Glasgow City Council to Swan Group to build 151 new affordable riverside homes in Glasgow’s east end.

Swan Group has recently concluded a contract with PfP Capital to deliver all 151 units.

The new development will provide affordable homes for people who want to live and work close to Glasgow city centre and is part of the Clyde Gateway regeneration project.

Comprising of five blocks, the Newhall Street development will provide a mix of one and two-bed flats and three of the blocks will be next to the River Clyde walkway.

Planning for the riverside homes was overseen by City Design and with four areas of general amenity space and private garden grounds for ground floor flats, residents will be part of a community with ample outdoor space for people to enjoy.

‘Integral to the future of Glasgow city’

Phil McGinlay, managing director of Swan Group, said: “Swan Group’s Newhall development is set to revitalise an area in Glasgow’s east end which will offer residents unrivalled, safe access to the city centre.

“Not only will the 151 flats be positioned next to the River Clyde walkway, they are right next to Glasgow Green offering a traffic free route through to the heart of the city.

“We look forward to delivering more high-quality affordable homes for the workers and families who are integral to the future of Glasgow city.”

William Kyle, fund director at PfP Capital Limited, commented: “We are delighted to be working with Swan Group to deliver a further 151 high-quality affordable homes for the Mid-Market Rent Fund.

“This is a prominent site, ideally located for access to the city centre which will provide  much needed additional affordable homes for the city together with the development of a prominent brownfield site.”

Martin McKay, executive director of regeneration at Clyde Gateway, added:  “I am delighted to see Swan Group’s ambitious plans reach the next stage of delivery.

“These quality new homes will add significantly to Clyde Gateway’s regeneration aims as ‘the place’ in which to live and work.

“We are always really encouraged by the demand for new homes in Clyde Gateway and Newhall Street is perfectly located for local communities to readily access green space and active travel.”
