Shawbridge Street, delivered on behalf of Loretto Housing, is located in the heart of the thriving community, once being home to the long-demolished Pollokshaws high-rise flats, adjacent to the Pollokshaws Parish Church comprising a mix of 42 flats with supported accommodation provided for the elderly/ those with decreased mobility.

A number of community benefit initiatives were delivered as a result of the project including:
