MAJOR Residential Developments Submitted For Toryglen

DEVELOPER Cruden Estates want to build nearly 120 homes on two sites at Toryglen in Glasgow, half of them on a site beside the Asda superstore.

Sixty semi-detached and terraced properties are proposed for a site at Prospecthill Road, inbetween the supermarket and Orchard Grove care home, and across from Toryglen football centre.

There would be 48 three-bedroom houses and 12 two bedroom homes.

Vehicle access would be from Prospecthill Circus.

There would be 78 car parking spaces. A pedestrian through-route would still be provided.

Meanwhile 58 homes are proposed for land at Prospecthill Road at Prospecthill Circus, on the other side of Orchard Grove care home.

There would be 16 houses and 42 flats. Seventy-three car parking spaces would be provided.

A terrace of three-storey blocks of flats would face Prospecthill Road and two-storey terraced houses will face Prospecthill Circus.

The terraces would enclose a triangular court providing parking and amenity space for the flats. This court would be overlooked by a terrace of four houses.

Planning documents submitted by Hypostyle Architects describe both applications as “proposals for residential development on brownfield sites that will provide viable and marketable developments”.

The applications are pending consideration by Glasgow City Council planning department.
