Our Properties: Type, Number and Location

The Association’s total housing stock at the end of February 2019 was 2,681 units.

  • 60% of the housing stock is pre-1919 tenement flats, rehabilitated and improved by the Association over the last 40 years through the very successful (but now abandoned) Housing Action Area for Improvement programme.
  • The purchase of tenement flats has resumed, with more than 246 flats purchased in the South West Govanhill Acquisition and Repair Programme area to December 2018.
  • The Association has built 274 new houses since 1982 to meet housing needs and address housing mix imbalances.  219 of the new build units are flats and 55 units are 2-storey terraced houses with back and front gardens.  We have a current new build project due to go on site in early 2020/21 which will provide a further 24 new flatted homes.
  • The Association acquired 665 homes in Govanhill and Merrylee in 2010 through stock transfers.
  • The housing stock provides a range of adapted, amenity and wheelchair housing and semi or fully-supported accommodation to meet the needs of particular client groups.
