Plans have been submitted for hundreds of homes to be built in the west end area of Glasgow as part of a new ‘urban village’.

The application has outlined 730 homes to be built at Lancefield Quay as part of a £205m development.

The plans were submitted by rent specialists Moda Living, who are working alongside property developer Osborne+Co to revitalise the area, which has been vacant since 2007.

Spanning a four-acre site on Lancefield Quay, the urban village project has been identified as a key part in linking Glasgow’s city centre with its west end.

It would be Moda’s second site in Glasgow, joining flats under development in the former Strathclyde Police headquarters on Pitt Street, and third overall in Scotland.

Oscar Brooks, director of Moda Living, said: “Glasgow has all the fundamentals we look for; it’s a well-connected, forward-looking city which boasts a strong local economy and is focused on growth which is why are committed as a long-term city partner.

“Construction on our Holland Park 425 home development is well advanced, demonstrating our enthusiasm for the city. We are excited to have the opportunity to develop our vision for the Lancefield Quay site and to be working alongside Osborne+Co and MRP as we bring forward a long vacant site.”

Conor Osborne, director of Osborne+Co, said: “This application marks an important milestone for what we hope will be a truly transformational development for this area.

“We have taken a strategic approach to these initial proposals and worked hard to ensure they align with Glasgow City Council’s wider regeneration ambitions to open up the waterfront and create a vibrant new location within the city. Moda’s involvement in the site will help us realise this ambition to create a single fully integrated development and we are looking forward to continued discussion with the council.”
