Building Futures


Bigg Regeneration – a joint venture between Scottish Canals and PfP Capital, managed by igloo Regeneration – has submitted a planning application to Glasgow City Council for 79 new waterfront homes to be built on the former Diageo distillery at Dundashill, at the northern edge of Glasgow City Centre.

‘Dundashill’ is a 600-home masterplan that will be delivered over a number of years. The proposed homes from Bigg Regeneration – a mix of three- and four-bedroom townhouses – will be the first offered for sale on the site and will provide an opportunity for contemporary urban living at Port Dundas, a place becoming known as a creative and urban sports destination, on Glasgow’s canal.

With a choice of designs from Glasgow-based practices Stallan Brand and Ann Nisbet Studio, the homes will offer high-quality, crafted architecture that celebrates the rigour and rhythm of some of Glasgow’s best-loved streets.

Stallan Brand proposes fully open-plan townhouses that offer residents flexibility in how to use the space. Ann Nisbet Studio’s homes are a modern interpretation of industrial space, with the roof forms and brick piers echoing the rich heritage of Port Dundas and include a dedicated home-working space provided on the top floor.

All homes will have a flexible front courtyard that can cater for bike storage, seating and planting, alongside a private rear garden. Most homes will also have a private roof terrace which will provide residents with a space to share with friends and family.

Bigg Regeneration has committed to achieving Glasgow City Council’s ‘Gold Hybrid’ building standard in order to reduce carbon emissions which will be achieved through enhanced fabric performance, resulting in reduced heat loss and, thus, energy demand, from the use of the CCG ‘iQ’ Timber System as well as a zero direct emissions heating system. The energy strategy for the development will be led by sustainability consultants, Carbon Futures.

Bigg Regeneration and CCG aim to commence construction in Autumn 2021.


CCG and Bigg Regeneration have worked in partnership together for a number of years, most notably in the delivery of Phases 3 and 4 of the Maryhill Locks Masterplan with the latter development, comprising 33 three and four-bedroom homes, winning both a RIAS Award and the Scottish Home Awards Innovation in Design in 2021.
