Pollokshaws is one of the first neighbourhoods in line to receive a portion of 25,000 new homes by 2025.
The authority has unveiled People Make Glasgow Home, a new housing strategy to tackle growing demand.
Council leader Gordon Matheson said: “The city needs to accelerate housebuilding to meet changing and growing demand.
“The building of these homes will bring tremendous economic and social benefits for the city, with a huge number of jobs and apprenticeships required to deliver new housing on such a scale.”
The plan includes releasing land for the development of affordable homes and helping first-time buyers to access mortgages for areas on the up, as well as turning empty retail units into housing and developing sites for self and custom-build houses.
Some 6,500 of the new homes will be in Transformational Regeneration Areas (TRAs) — a joint partnership between GCC, the Scottish Government and Glasgow Housing Association — with Pollokshaws included in the first wave.
The programme has been rolled out in Maryhill, Laurieston, Gallowgate and North Toryglen already, followed by Sighthill in 2015/16 and the southside site in 2016/17.
