60 new home developments have been completed in Glasgow.

The affordable homes are located in Mansfield Park in the city’s Partick and are now welcoming tenants after years of delays.

Funded by Glasgow City Council and Partick Housing Association (PHA), the development sits on the former site of St Peter’s School on Chancellor Street, Dovenhill Street and White Street.

There are 31 flats for social rent, 21 for mid-market rent and eight for supported accommodation managed by the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH).

Glasgow Times:

PHA Chief Executive, Stewart McKenzie, said: “We are delighted to complete these new affordable flats in the heart of Partick, and welcome tenants to their fantastic new homes.”

PHA Chair Alan Howie added: “It is great to see this project successfully completed and these affordable new homes delivered.

“Many thanks to the council, our partners and the local community for their continued support.

“At Partick Housing Association, we are committed to providing more quality affordable homes to meet local housing needs in the West End.”

Glasgow Times:

Councilor Kenny McLean, Glasgow City Council’s Convenor of Housing, Development, Built Heritage and Land Use, also welcomed the development.

He said: “The completion of this development of new and high-quality affordable homes in Partick is very welcome, and of course, these flats help meet the need for such housing in this part of Glasgow.

“We are delighted to support this development and work with our partners to bring more new homes to Glasgow.”

Before the project was completed, it was hit with significant delays due to the pandemic and the original contractor going into administration.

Glasgow Times:

In 2020, we exclusively reported that Partick residents were ‘fed up’ after a busy street was closed for months as progress stalled.

After completion, a new resident of Mansfield Gate has said he was “thrilled” to be offered a flat.

They added: “They have been built to a high standard and feel very spacious and bright inside. It’s perfect for our first family home.”
