Dundashill lies in the Port Dundas area of North Glasgow. The unique geographic location of Port Dundas requires 360o consideration. Sitting at the centre of several large masterplans and a successful city centre Dundashill could help stitch north Glasgow together while improving north Glasgow’s relationship with the city. The unique topography presents a rare mix of challenges and opportunities, which has allowed HTA Design and Rankin Fraser to respond with this urban design framework that is both imaginative and progressive, with its very own character and content.
The regeneration of Dundashill provides high quality mixed use development of housing, apartments, commercial space, and high quality open spaces and streets. Influences are taken from European Cities like Copenhagen as well as historical precedents has been used from Edinburgh and Glasgow. The Place Prospectus provides a strategic framework which establishes the principles of design and sets out the components the masterplan is made off.
