Project HistoryClick an image to enlarge
Greater Govan & Glasgow Harbour, Linthouse
Linthouse Housing Association has now completed the development
of two vacant sites in Aboukir Street.
The 2 new bookend blocks create 24 affordable homes with 12 for
rent and 12 for low cost home ownership in Linthouse, with 4
wheelchair accessible apartments.
A new street frontage opens to the North, re-creating the
original Linthouse street pattern, and orientating the apartments
East and West with balconies and tall windows to maximise the
daylight and connections with the street below.
The project is now complete.
Completed October 2010
Between 2003 and 2014 Clyde Waterfront was a strategic
partnership comprising the Scottish Government, Scottish
Enterprise, Glasgow City, Renfrewshire and West Dunbartonshire
Councils. Its purpose was to promote the economic, social and
environmental regeneration of 13 miles of the River Clyde from
Glasgow city centre to Dumbarton.
