Our Laurieston project is to be launched on Friday 15th August 2014. The New Gorbals Housing Association has worked on plans and proposals for Laurieston with Glasgow City Council from 2003, finalising them in 2009 after extensive community consultation.
The intention has always been to build and improve upon the award winning achievements of Hutchesontown and create a new, vibrant, world class city quarter. The original masterplan was developed with Urban Initiatives. Since then, there have been modifications to the masterplan made by New Gorbals with Page\ Park Architects (2011) and by Urban Union with RMJM Architects (2014).
The first phase to the south of the site is nearing completion and is the result of a collaboration between ourselves and Elder and Cannon Architects with Ian White Associates carrying out the landscape design. McTaggart Construction are the main contractors. The aspiration has been to capture the grain, consistency and scale of tenemental Glasgow in this contemporary development.
