Maltings Wynd is the second phase of development at Dundashill and is being delivered by a partnership between PFP igloo and Housing Growth Partnership. These homes – a mix of 3- and 4-bedroom townhouses – are for sale and provide an opportunity for contemporary, low carbon, urban living.
The masterplan envisages Dundashill as a new place to live defined by landscaped streets and paths that stitch together spaces for the new community to enjoy, from play areas, shared gardens and viewing platforms to street art murals and a new central square.
West of Scotland Housing Association is delivering Phase One, 90 mid-market rental apartments, being built to Passivhaus standard. This development will complete in 2023.
Maltings Wynd is Phase Two of the development and will deliver A-rated 3- and 4- bedroom townhouses, providing a rare opportunity for contemporary, low carbon, urban living. Construction started in January 2023 and will finish in Spring 2025, with first handovers from early Spring 2024.
Future phases will be shaped and delivered by the partners involved, firmly in the belief that the best places are built at different times, by different developers using different architects. Plans for temporary use of these development plots are being considered too.
Maltings Wynd offers plenty of places to get to know your neighbours, with the homes set around a centrepiece Sunken Garden, designed for biodiversity, sustainable drainage and for the community to enjoy. Smaller seating areas elsewhere provide quiet spots to watch the world go by or to enjoy views over the city below. The playspace includes equipment alongside areas for imaginative play, picnics, and storytelling.
With a choice of bespoke designs from award winning Glasgow based practices Stallan Brand and Ann Nisbet Studio, the homes exemplify crafted architecture offering a range of open plan layouts, garden spaces and views. Lower carbon footprints come as standard with each home having a heat pump and solar panels.
Just a short walk from Glasgow city centre, Glasgow’s Canal is home to a rich mix of culture, sports and urban nature. From grass-roots art studios and workspaces, to arts venues and national cultural organisations, the new and evolving cultural hub is bringing together some of the most creative minds in Scotland.
Glasgow’s Canal is also home to a variety of cutting-edge sports activities, including the purpose-built Pinkston Watersports centre, the Loading Bay skatepark, Glasgow Wake Park, Everyday Athlete Gym. There’s even a canalside fitness trail. More recently, Scotland’s first urban nature reserve has been opened up thanks to the creation of a new pathway through the heart of the Hamiltonhill Claypits.
