New city living project walks off with award
A GLASGOW regeneration scheme has received an award at the CIH Scotland Excellence Awards.
More than 400 guests from across Scotland’s housing sector gathered at Glasgow’s Radisson Blu hpotel, where Urban Union’s Laurieston development saw off competition from across the industry to pick up the Excellence in Regeneration award.
The £140million revitalisation project at Laurieston Living was commended for its informed design process, which took into consideration financial, cultural, social and environmental factors of the area.
Urban Union’s commitment to creating communities was also recognised.
The organisation’s five-year arts strategy for Laurieston Living aims to explore and connect the development to the rich history of the Gorbals, its people and places.
