Thenue Housing has begun its latest property development with a new project in Dalmarnock.

The project will deliver 41 homes near the Dalmarnock railway station on a gap site, creating 22 houses and 19 flats.

Thy development, located on Connal Street just off Springfield Road, is being constructed by CCG (Scotland) and will consist of two-, three- and four-bedroom family homes and one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. The total cost is £8.9 million and they are due for completion in early 2025.

Jointly launching the start of the work, Thenue and CCG said the homes would deliver much-needed properties in the east end. They are being built on land which was used as an overflow car park for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Connal Street is the latest in a fast-paced development programme from Thenue, which recently completed 27 flats for retirement tenants at Landressy Place in nearby Bridgeton. Again in Bridgeton at Dalmarnock Road, 10 new one-bedroom flats – also for retirement tenants – are coming on a site where a tenement once stood. They are due to be finished a year from now.

Thenue chief executive Gary Naylor said: “We are delighted to be on site at Connal Street as we continue to deliver on our promise to tenants to keep on building new homes.

“We acknowledge the financial support of Glasgow City Council and the Scottish Government in making our latest development happen.

“Thenue knows from our tenant feedback that continuing to build energy-efficient affordable homes is something which figures highly in our tenants’ expectations.”

CCG most recently worked with Thenue on a development of 18 houses and flats in Blackhill which were completed in March this year.

CCG managing director David Wylie said: “Working with our design team partners MAST Architects and G3 Consulting Engineers, CCG are delighted to return to Dalmarnock with Connal Street.

“We know the area very well. The highly energy-efficient new homes will be created in our advanced manufacturing premises located just 2.5 miles away in Cambuslang whilst the site also neighbours the former Athletes’ Village, a project that we helped deliver as part of the City Legacy consortium. We fully understand the positive impact the development will have on the local community.

“We can also proudly state this positive impact will extend beyond the new homes with three new jobs, eight work placements and engagement with local schools amongst the various initiatives that will be delivered during the construction programme.”
