The council’s first main project is with the Gorbals Housing Association to build 200 social homes and 100 homes for mid market rent.
Glasgow council chiefs also plan to enter into a agreement to deliver master planning and development of the remainder of the Laurieston Transformational Area, which will be taken ahead in three further phases over several years.
All four phases would bring the total number of new homes in Laurieston to 1,700 for social rent, private sale and low-cost home ownership.
The ambitious proposals also include new health, social services and community facilities, green space and commercial and retail accommodation.
The housing plan is part of a major initiative to kickstart regeneration in Glasgow being steered by the Scottish Government, Glasgow City Council and Glasgow Housing Association.
The eight areas identified for regeneration, known as Transformational Regeneration Areas (TRAs), are: East Govan / Ibrox, Gallowgate, Laurieston, Maryhill, North Toryglen, Red Road, Sighthill and Shawbridge.
Initially, the partnership will work together on delivering new homes and communities in Maryhill and Laurieston, followed shortly afterwards by Gallowgate.
