More than 40 new homes to rent are being built on a plot of land in Glasgow's East End.

Work has begun this week on a development of 22 houses and 19 flats in the city's Dalmarnock.

Located on Connal Street just off Springfield Road, the £8.9 million project is the latest by housing association Thenue Housing and is being built by CCG Scotland

It will consist of two-, three- and four-bedroom family homes as well as a range of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. 

Built on land which was previously used as an overflow car park for the 2014 Commonwealth Games, the first tenants are expected to move in around early 2025.

Thenue Chief Executive Gary Naylor said: “We are delighted to be on-site at Connal Street as we continue to deliver on our promise to tenants to keep on building new homes.

“We acknowledge the financial support of Glasgow City Council and the Scottish Government in making our latest development happen.

“Thenue knows from our tenant feedback that continuing to build energy-efficient affordable homes is something which figures highly in our tenants’ expectations.”

Thenue has had a busy year of delivering homes to the local area, as they finished 27 retirement flats at Landressy Place in Bridgeton.

Meanwhile, ten new one-bedroom retirement flats are also due to be completed on Dalmarnock Road a year from now. 

CCG has previously worked with Thenue on 18 houses and flats in Blackhill which were completed in March this year.

CCG's managing director David Wylie said: “Working with our design team partners MAST Architects and G3 Consulting Engineers, CCG are delighted to return to Dalmarnock with Connal Street.

“We know the area very well.

"The highly energy-efficient new homes will be created in our advanced manufacturing premises located just 2.5 miles away in Cambuslang whilst the site also neighbours the former Athletes’ Village, a project that we helped deliver as part of the City Legacy consortium.

"We fully understand the positive impact the development will have on the local community."
