Laurieston regeneration project

A £90m regeneration scheme in Glasgow involving McTaggart Construction and Keepmoat has been formally launched.

The project, for the Laurieston area of the city and funded by the Scottish government and the city council, is one of three pilot Transformational Regeneration Area (TRA) projects in Glasgow.

It is being developed by New Gorbals Housing Association in partnership with Urban Union, a joint venture between McTaggart, Keepmoat and Robertson Group Holdings.

Scottish cabinet secretary for infrastructure and capital investment, Alex Neil, today (Wednesday) launched the first phase of the scheme involving 200 homes and unveiled new visualisations.

Neil said: “We are committed to helping local communities flourish, become stronger and safer places to live.

“This is a major milestone today, not just for Laurieston but also for Glasgow, and with almost £14m from the Scottish Government, this £90m investment will kick start the regeneration of the area over the next few years. 

Janice Belshaw, project manager at Urban Union, said: “With the development agreement in place we are now on site with the Laurieston Project which will see the transformation of this important city centre district.

“Laurieston has a rich and eclectic history which will form a cornerstone for the new development, mixing this resilient heritage with high quality contemporary design to lay firm foundations for a new vibrant city-centre quarter.”

Urban Union was appointed to the scheme in May last year.
