Govan Housing Association, which is building its biggest-ever development of 92 homes at Water Row, has disclosed that the first tenants will be in their homes in time for Christmas.
The housing association will take delivery of one of the five blocks being constructed in November clearing the way for them to be let to tenants.
This week Govan Housing Association said the news was ”a further step forward” in its promise to deliver affordable housing as part of the ongoing regeneration of Govan.
The new homes – with an additional six commercial units beneath them – are within touching distance of the new Govan-Partick bridge whose main span was floated up the Clyde earlier this month.
The housing and the £29.5 million bridge are part of a wider multi-million masterplan to help regenerate the community.
Sprinkler Protection is provided to all 92 dwellings; the sprinklers are fed from a shared tank and booster set which, in the event of activation, connects to the flow switch that activates the PDV (priority demand valve) and will give full priority to the water to the sprinkler system to suppress a fire should it arise.
A total of 431 340w panels from Viridian will be installed as part of a common (landlord) supply.
The development is part-funded by Govan HA with grant support provided by the Scottish Government Glasgow City Council’s Affordable Housing Supply Programme, the “Glasgow City Region City Deal” and the Clyde Mission Fund.
Councillor Kenny McLean, Convener for Housing at Glasgow City Council, said:
“This new development at Water Row will not only provide fantastic new homes for the people who will live there, but is another example of the transformation of the Clydeside and Govan currently taking place. We are delighted to have supported the building of this landmark development on the banks of the Clyde.”< back
