PLANS have been submitted to Glasgow City Council for almost 80 new homes to be built just north of the city centre. 

Bigg Regeneration has submitted a planning application for 79 waterfront contemporary townhouses to be built at Dundashill on the former Diageo distillery. 

Dundashill is a 600-home plan that will be delivered over a number of years, with the proposed homes from Bigg Regeneration being the first to be offered for sale on the site. 

They will be a mix of three and four-bedroom townhouses.

Like nearby Spiers Wharf, the development will offer a blend of social and urban lifestyles and will be a "quiet hilltop retreat" with communal spaces and homes overlooking the city. 

The properties will be designed by Glasgow-based practices Stallan Brand and Ann Nisbet Studio, offering high-quality and crafted architecture. 

Stellan Brand is proposing fully open plan townhouses, offering the residents full flexibility. 

Ann Nisbet Studio is proposing homes that are a modern interpretation of industrial space, reflecting the heritage of Port Dundas. 

There will also be a dedicated home-working space provided on the top floor. 

All of the homes will have a front courtyard and private rear garden, while most homes will also have a private roof terrace. 

All parking spaces, which will be allocated to residents, will be electric vehicle enabled. 

Landscape designers Rankin Fraser meanwhile have proposed a number of community spaces for future residents, including a hilltop children's play space, a terrace with views of the city, and a centrepiece Sunken Garden. 

Bigg Regeneration is a joint venture between Scottish Canals and PfP Capital, managed by igloo Regeneration. 

Catherine Topley, CEO of Scottish Canals, said: "Dundashill will be an exciting new community of homes designed to meet our rapidly changing lifestyles and to help address the climate emergency we all face.

"This is a neighbourhood that is transforming rapidly, becoming a connected, characterful place that has blue and green space, including the canal and new Claypits nature reserve, alongside urban sports and new active travel links to the city centre, meaning residents will have the opportunity to meet most daily needs right on their doorstep.

"Our recent development of homes at Maryhill Locks sold incredibly quickly - the latest phase of 33 family townhouses were bought completely off plan – and as the homes at Dundashill will be of an equivalent high standard and value for money, we expect similar demand, as people see the potential to call this new place home.

"This was a brownfield site which will now be brought back to life, creating a new resident canal-side community overlooking the city.

"We are delighted to have submitted our planning application and look forward to commencing delivery in 2022."

Dundashill follows Bigg Regeneration's hugely successful Maryhill Locks which won Starter Home of the Year in 2017, the Glasgow Institute of Architects Best Residential Award (large) in 2019 and was selected as one of Scotland's Buildings of the Year by RIAS in 2021. 

It is hoped development on the site will start in Autumn.
