New & Improved Housing


One of the biggest and most noticeable changes across Clyde Gateway over the past few years has been in housing.


Some of the biggest and best-known house builders in the country, including Barratt, Bett, Cruden, Keir and MacTaggart & Mickel have come to the area while all of the locally based housing associations which provide a service in the social-rented market have invested hundreds of millions of pounds in improving and refurbishing existing stock as well as delivering an impressive number of new-builds.


The Athletes Village has been transformed into a superb riverside residential community with Phase 1 delivering 700 homes of which 300 were for sale and the remainder for social rent through three local housing associations (GHA, Thenue and West of Scotland). Further phases of development, utilising land that was used for temporary buildings and facilities associated with the hosting of the Games, is anticipated to bring a further 700 homes to the site in the years ahead.


Clyde Gateway has signed a deal with the Link Group that will see 550 homes built on the site of the former Dalmarnock Power Station that closed back in 1977. The development will see a six-year investment programme worth £65m with the outcome being a comprehensive housing mix of various sized units across different tenures including social rented, shared equity and family homes for sale.
