Urban Realm Volume 7.30
Place is the word on our lips as we kickstart the New Year in the company of the Place Commission, a body pushing for the transfer of city assets to communities.
One place which continues to reinvent itself is the Gorbals. From a middle-class suburb to a slum and clearance the push now is to embrace the over 55’s at North Gate. It is a timely reminder of the culmination
of the Crown Street Regeneration Project, a heroic effort to recreate a sense of place when virtually all traces of the past have been obliterated.
It is the UR100 which dominates the issue, a tribute to the place makers building our future today it is the place to be.
