New homes tipped to ‘transform’ ex-school site in Glasgow’s east end

CCG Homes has released CGI images offering a first glimpse of the new homes tipped to ‘transform’ a derelict site in Glasgow’s east end.

Plans were submitted to Glasgow City Council earlier in the spring to create up to 156 homes upon a site adjacent to Edinburgh Road in Springboig. The land was once home to a school that was demolished in 2010.

Proposals for the new development include up to 124, two, three and four-bedroom homes for sale in a range of detached, semi-detached and terraced house types with a further 32 one and two-bedroom apartments intended for market rent.

CCG said the site will retain a focus on its ‘rich bio-diversity’ with large rear gardens and communal amenity space.

If granted approval, CCG Homes aims to launch sales in summer 2022.

CCG Homes MD Calum Murray said, “We are delighted to give people their first look of 1190 Edinburgh Road, a development that will contribute greatly to an already thriving Springboig community that is well served by local shops, community facilities and excellent transport links.

“Our proposed housing mix has been designed to be accessible to a wide-ranging demographic, suitable for families and downsizers alike, and I am confident that the proposals will be accepted by Glasgow City Council.”
