The first phase of the Laurieston regeneration project is the culmination of a very long journey, beginning in 2002, to transform the area and create a new residential quarter fit for the 21st century. The masterplan builds on the urban character of Glasgow, comprising clearly defined blocks to reinforce the grid-like quality of the city. Its character follows a contemporary tenement form, with a variety of housing types apartments, maisonettes and terraced houses exploiting where possible the rich possibilities of corners, southern aspect and courtyard environments. The ambition at the outset of the project was to achieve a powerful sense of place and a landmark for the future development of the Laurieston area _ it is the manifestation of a vision with people at its heart.
