Green light for up to 300 homes planned for derelict Glasgow site
Outline plans have been approved for a major residential development and commercial units on derelict land just north of central Glasgow.
Up to 300 houses and flats are planned for a site on the east side of Carlisle Street, north of Inverurie Street/Endrick Street, in Cowlairs. The development will feature a mix of flats and terraced housing, with buildings ranging from two to six storeys.
Fourteen retail, commercial and workshop units are also being proposed by applicant Albermarle Glasgow 2012 LLP. Parking for 330 vehicles and 340 cycles would be provided.
The site was occupied by Cowlairs Locomotive Works until the late 1960s and later used by Scottish Water.
A masterplan — including 800 homes — for developing a large area of land on the west side of Carlisle Street was unveiled in 2019.
