Hundreds of homes with a “New York aesthetic” are set to be built in a Glasgow neighbourhood after planning permission was approved.

Glasgow City Council backed a detailed planning application from Ambassador Living for the development of 132 luxury homes in Finnieston.

The proposals, brought forward by the privately owned homebuilder, will result in the creation of “West Avenue” located at the corner of Finnieston Street and Minerva Street, which is set to reflect a New York City aesthetic.

The development includes a mix of one, two and three-bedroom, apartments, duplexes and penthouses with a “New York vibe”.

A collection of six retail spaces will also be located along part of the ground floor, which is expected to contribute to local employment.

Delighted with the decision made by the planning committee, Gordon Coster, managing director of Ambassador Living, said: “Finnieston is perhaps one of the most sought-after areas of Glasgow.

“The location of our West Avenue development is in a prime position to become the cornerstone of the thriving neighbourhood and we are thrilled to have such a positive determination from the committee which will allow us to bring our vision to life and bring positive addition to the local community.

“Our plans reflect modern living with a sympathetic nod to the site’s history, bringing it back to its former glory and becoming a beacon as you enter into the popular West End.”

“We aim to breathe new life into this area of Finnieston, transforming it into something pretty special for the people of Glasgow to be proud of.”
