"Currently the site is formed of predominantly grassland with a number of trees and shrubs close to the perimeter.

"At present the only built form on the site is a makeshift pigeon doocot which will be removed by its owner prior to works commencing on site."

The block of flats will have four separate closes, three of which will be four storeys with the southernmost close being six storeys, acting as a landmark signifying the gateway into the Barrowfield/Camlachie community.

Glasgow City Council gave permission for the build to go-ahead with conditions.
