GLASGOW-based housebuilder AS Homes (Scotland) has been granted permission to develop 36 homes for social rent in Ibrox on behalf of housing association Home Group Scotland.
The brownfield site in North Gower Street was formerly home to an annexe of Bellahouston Academy.
AS Homes revealed that the construction will comprise of an L-shaped four-storey block, designed by George Buchanan Architects to be in keeping with the height of surrounding tenements. There will be 18 one-bed and 18 two-bed flats, including three wheelchair-adaptable homes, communal space and a children’s play area. 21 parking spaces will also be provided.
Paul Kelly, MD of AS Homes, said, “This is excellent news and provides much needed, quality social housing for the Ibrox area – and wonderful homes for future tenants of Home Group.”
Located within a grouping of B-Listed Buildings, consultation took place with the planning department and the Glasgow Urban Design Panel. Work is expected to start on site in April 2021.
