Greater Govan & Glasgow Harbour, Govan


An urban site at Pearce Street and Pearce Lane, central Govan has been developed for Bield Housing between Water Row and the Pearce Institute to provide centrally located housing for older people.  The 27 unit residential development of amenity flats has been designed to include 2 flats suitable for wheelchair users.

The Post Office sorting office which previously occupied this key location in central Govan has been demolished.

Other developments at Govan Cross are currently underway to regenerate the town centre.

Current status:

The site was purchased in October 2007 and demolition of the sorting office followed early in 2008. The building work was completed in September 2010 and the project officially opened by Deputy First Minister and Govan MSP Nicola Sturgeon.
