Renfrew Riverside & Scotstoun, Yoker
The 1930 style Glasgow City Council tenement buildings that
framed Drysdale Street were demolished in the mid 1990's, leaving
two large brownfield sites.
Drysdale Street is wedged between Dyke Road to the west, the
Glasgow Loch Lomond cycle path and the Glasgow to Dalmuir
railway line to the north and Dumbarton Road to the south.
Yoker Housing Association will create a total of 68 new
houses for social rent, in two phases, which will include homes for
elderly residents and residents with particular housing
needs. In addition, the Association has proposals for a
community café and local square in Drysdale Street.
Community involvement in this re-development project has been
important. Besides community consultation in relation to the
building work, the Association has arranged workshops with a number
of community groups and local schools to obtain their ideas for the
design of the local square and the planned public art project.
A total of 68 houses have been developed over 2 phases and are
now fully complete.

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.
