North Toryglen was a twenty-four hectare site consisting mainly of derelict and vacant land located between Mount Florida and Rutherglen, North of Prospecthill Road. The site has seen all but 50 of the 1960's build homes and shops demolished and replaced with 400 new mixed tenure homes for sale and rent through the private sector development partner (PSDP) Crudens Holdings (West) Ltd.
Phase 1 comprised 100 units for social rent by Wheatley Group and 55 new homes for sale by Crudens. Phase 2 of 49 new award-winning homes for private sale by Crudens incorporated low energy design principles and achieved Ecohomes 'very good' rating and Phase 3 providing a further 69 private sale homes. In addition, as part of Glasgow City Councils' multi-million pound 'Tomorrow's Residential and Day care Service' a new elderly persons care home was constructed which provides 120 en-suite bedrooms and opened during Autumn 2016.
Cruden has submitted a planning application for Phase 4 (58 units, 42 flats and 16 houses for private sale), the last remaining site which has frontage along Prospecthill Road.
Clyde Gateway delivered the Building with Nature 'Excellent' accreditation Integrated Green Infrastructure project with all three major sections open to the public in November 2021 and showcased at COP26. It has created a mixed-use park, incorporating wetland habitats, play parks and gym equipment, a network of footpaths and cycle routes, a woodland educational facility, and many other significant wildlife and landscape enhancements.
North Toryglen is now well on the way to being a successful and sustainable community.
