PagePark architects have submitted plans for a second phase of a New Gorbals Housing Association led regeneration of Laurieston, following completion of the award winning first phase. Standing in a gap site once occupied by Gorbals Parish Church the scheme rises to meet the street corner with seven storeys, before stepping back to acknowledge the tree line of Eglinton Street. This will see 55 new homes built on the corner of Eglinton Street and Cumberland Street as a continuation of properties delivered thus far, employing a simple brick finish and reinstating the street line. A separate application has been lodged to demolish the last of four 24-storey tower blocks at Norfolk Court to make way for further development.
