Anderston Phases 4 and 5
ARCHITECTURE: Affordable Housing
The completion of Anderston Phases 4 & 5 concludes the regeneration of Anderston which began in 2004. These final phases provide an additional 206 new build flats, completed in sandstone and brick work, complementing the surrounding context.
The development reinstates the missing section of Argyle Street, re-opens important vistas towards the city centre from Glasgow’s West End and vice versa. and stitches Anderston back into the surrounding area of Finnieston.
The 189 mid market flats are a car free development, and the 87 flats for social rent are provided with less that 50% provision to the outer edge of the rear of the site. Five new buildings, varying in height from four to seven stories, front the streets around the site. Houldsworth Street to the rear of the site, is now lined with large south facing communal gardens that accommodate the level changes across the whole site.
