The transformation of one of Glasgow’s key regeneration areas is to continue – after approval was granted for 137 new homes.

Developer Urban Union has been given the green light by Glasgow City Council to build the new homes in Pollokshaws.

The ‘Pollokshaws Living’ urban village will include 77 homes – a mix of two, three, four and five bedroom terraced properties – and 60 one and two bedroom apartments.

In addition to the sustainable housing, the application also outlines landscaping, open space, parking and associated drainage and infrastructure at the site.

Urban Union acquired the land, located between Shawholm Crescent and Shawbridge Street, in 2017.

Work is due to start on the 5.74 acre site later this summer, based on a design from award-winning architects Barton Willmore.

Neil McKay, managing director, Urban Union, said: “Our plans for Pollokshaws Living will create a number of high quality homes and apartments.

“We are confident the local community will be immensely proud of the new urban village.”
