200 new homes planned for Athletes’ Village site

Plans will be lodged next week for the second phase of housing at the Athletes’ Village, in Glasgow which could see a further 200 new homes built at the site, according to the Evening Times. A school and shops are also planned, with work due to start next year. Developer City Legacy intends to lodge a formal notice with city planners saying it wants to press ahead with the next phase of the development. The first phase involved 300 flats and houses for sale and 400 for social rented housing. It had been thought it could be years before work started on the second tranche of housing. But the first homes proved so popular with buyers that they were snapped up much quicker than expected. City Legacy is a consortium of Glasgow firms CCG, Cruden, Mactaggart & Mickel and WH Malcolm. The new development, on vacant land within the existing Village site, will also include new roads, landscaping and outdoor space. Speaking on behalf of City Legacy, Calum Murray, managing director of CCG Homes, said: “The interest in The Village before, during and after the Commonwealth Games has been overwhelming and that’s why we have taken to decision to build more homes on the site.” The decision was welcomed by Calton councillor George Redmond who said it was a vote of confidence in the area. He added: “This shows Dalmarnock is a place people want to live.” Archie Graham, the council’s Games spokesman, said: “The Athletes’ Village has already proven to be a great success. “The application to build new homes no doubt reflects the confidence developers have in Dalmarnock as an area in which to live, work and invest.”
