Homes plan lodged for Yoker Housing Association at Blawarthill Hospital

Blawarthill Hospital homes 2Plans have been submitted to build 15 new homes at a vacant Glasgow hospital site for Yoker Housing Association.

Grant Murray Architects have lodged proposals for bungalows and two storey cottage flats at the former Blawarthill Hospital in the Knightswood area of the city.

A significant part of the derelict site is to be developed into a care home by Glasgow City Council.

The proposed housing development will see the complete demolition of the former hospital, save for the C-listed original building, and has been designed to marry with the planned care home.

In a statement the architects said: “Massing is restricted to terraced single storey bungalows being the prevailing house type to meet the Association’s current demand for single bedroom accommodation. The exception to this is the two storey blocks which ‘bookend’ the newbuild site.”
