We are delighted to receive Planning Consent for our North Gate affordable housing development for the New Gorbals Housing Association.

Located at the junction of Laurieston Road and Crown Street, the project will form the gateway to the Gorbals from Glasgow city centre. It comprises of 33 homes for social rent, with a mix of 11 1-bed and 22 2-bed properties.

The project utilises a simple palette of materials including grey/buff stock brick and features a unique angular eaves line that creates a playful addition to the city skyline.

The layout splays out to match the curvature of the adjacent Laurieston Road to maximise views back to the city and fill the long-standing gap site. A pre-cast concrete panel will include recessed lettering at the northern corner of the site, marking a formal entrance into the neighbourhood.
