A planning application that will see 400 homes and student accommodation built in Glasgow has been submitted.

The application put forward by Summix Capital will look to take on a "major urban project" that will look to continue the Clyde Riverside regeneration.

And the regeneration specialists have selected a vacant 4.43-acre site beside office buildings that overlook the River Clyde.

The development is looking to deliver a mixed-use area that will contain residential properties, with 400 private homes to be on sale, along with student accommodations and an area for commercial use for food and drink retail companies.

The former site of Harland & Wolffe Finnieston Diesel Engine Works has been derelict for over 50 years with its regeneration being said to be a "significant investment" in Glasgow. 

The design of the new neighbourhood features to reduce embodied carbon through their choice of materials, plus extensive use of renewable energy and sustainable urban drainage.

Biodiversity will be improved through planting and green spaces featuring high-quality roof gardens, children’s play areas and a new public plaza.

A representative from Summix Capital said: "We are delighted to be submitting a planning application.

"This truly mixed-use development represents a significant investment in Glasgow, providing much-needed housing and student accommodation, as well as commercial space.

“Located on a brownfield site, this major urban renewal project continues the regeneration of the Clyde riverside and follows extensive community consultation.”
