Two Glasgow housing associations have teamed up to deliver a new social housing development in the west end.

Queens Cross and Glasgow West housing associations are planning to build 46 one and two bedroom flats specifically suited to older people in Burnbank Gardens.

Each upper floor of the block will have a sun-deck and balconies for residents to socialise in the fresh air, whilst the ground floor has a communal landscaped garden.

Rona Anderson, Queens Cross Housing Association’s Director of Property, Enterprise and Regeneration, said: “There is a high demand for social rented housing in the area and a keen desire within the local community to see the hostel demolished and the site developed into something more in keeping with the local environment”.

The completed flats will be divided equally between the housing associations.

The homes will be divided between the associations.
