The urban regeneration organisation is restarting work across Glasgow’s East End regeneration area, with an increase in housing and continued investment in business space and leisure facilities.

Nearly 1,000 new homes are being built as Link Group and McTaggart Group restart the Dalmarnock Riverside development and Springfield Homes brings forward new homes at Dalmarnock station. More new homes are in the pipeline with the Swan Group’s recent proposal for new homes at Newhall Street in Dalmarnock, which will soon be joined by further residential development there.

Clyde Gateway will continue to expand its roster of business space and is pushing to complete two office pavilions at Rutherglen Links Business Park, which were just some 12 weeks from completion when lockdown was announced. A new headquarters for the Scottish Trades Union Congress (STUC) at Bridgeton will restart and is expected to be completed before the end of the year. A speculative development, the Purifier Studios, on the site of the former gas works in Dalmarnock, will also start on site. The Victorian building is being given a new lease of life as offices and workspaces.
