Victoria Road

Design Me have been appointed by Govanhill Housing Association to provide full Mechanical, Electrical & Public Health designs for the new build flatted development in the South side of Glasgow.

The derelict site in Govanhill is to be transformed into affordable homes in a scheme put forward by Govanhill Housing Association. The £5.5 million project involves a 42-home development at the corner of Victoria Road and Butterbiggins Road.

 The scheme will provide homes with affordable rents to help meet the growing demand for housing in Govanhill.

The scheme, drawn up by Glasgow-based Collective Architecture, will include two and three bedroom family flats, as well as a number of larger family homes and amenity flats for elderly people, with wheelchair access for some. It is supported by £3m grant funding from Glasgow City Council and the Scottish Government.

The site was occupied by a cinema until 1986 and also a petrol station, more recently being used as a public art space.
