The opening ceremony is being staged in the San Giro.

The velodrome and indoor arena is being built across the road.

now i had heard that also mate and that was why the whole commonwealth village was indeed being built within 200 yards of the piggery ,but they are also erecting a stadium across the road from septic ,that i thought was going to be the stadium for the opening but now you mention it ,i think you are correct mate.

there no building a stadium, unless you show me otherwise, there is permission for redevelopment at septic triangle, basically the cespit around there stadium. to do with commonwealth games for a hotel, restaurant casino complex but doubt a casino will go up, wont help the area much like the housing schemes etc, depends how much is getting spent really

GCC have awarded City Legacy Consortium led by Davis Langdon with RMJM, Cruden Estates, McTaggart & Mickel, Citybuilding and CCG the contract to design and deliver the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games Athletes Village. With Glasgow emphatically securing the 2014 Commonwealth Games, easily eclipsing its nearest rival by a margin of 2:1, At Dalmarnock Village it is intended to develop an exemplar in ecological development with 1,000 homes for 7,000 athletes nestling in 40 hectares of verdant previously abandoned landscape at the Clyde Gateway. Housing stock will comprise a mix of apartments, townhouses, detached and semi detached houses which will be marketed for sale and rent in the games aftermath it remaining to be seen if Ian Simpson's services entail densification of ambition.

In addition to housing the Village will accommodate all ancillary services required of such an event producing a self sufficient community and introducing a number of key facilities foreign to present day Dalmarnock. These include a hotel, conference suites, security pens, media zones, shopping and entertainment facilities. The centrepiece of the Games will be a new stadium sporting two arenas under one roof, the 5,000 seat National Indoor Sports Arena and 2,000 seat velodrome with Sport Scotland HQ on a central avenue between, proposed for land adjacent to Celtic Park.

With demolition of four 24 storey tower blocks at 4, 40 & 50 Millerfield Place and 131 Allen Street and scores of corporation tenements Dalmarnock is now clear to host the Commonwealth Games rejuvenating the Dalmarnock area which presently resembles a ghost town.

Opinion

Dalmarnock is full of latent potential, occupying a bend in the Clyde it enjoys a a semi rural aspect with much open space and a riverbank setting, if the Games can take advantage of this situation they will be spectacular. By 2029 it is hoped some £1.6bn will have been invested in 10,000 homes and 400,000sq/m of commercial space can be created across the Clyde Gateway aided by the M74 extension and East End Regeneration Route alongside a possible reopened Bridgeton/Parkhead rail service.

What is critical to creating a genuine urban environment is restoration of the Edwardian tenements further down Millerfield Road. Pre war housing should be given utmost priority for grant aid as such homes constitute the very essence of Glasgow. The tenements surviving today have done so because they were rehabilitated in the eighties and nineties, although this is clearly futile if they are subsequently abandoned. The Games carry the carrot of a sustainable future for the area, the first such opportunity in a generation.

Prior designs

In design RMJM's Athlete Village concept is determinedly low density, perhaps symptom of the quantity of land available but also product of a generous proportion of green space, amenity and water features although designs have certainly been revised downward and contrast with the spectacular red herring at East One. The village is to be divided into 6-8 themed glens denoted by signpost and colour to aid orientation with a fleet of electric buses set to ferry athletes to the venues. Progress Property have formed a collaborative partnership with Mace Group as construction manager & City Building (Glasgow) LLP for Construction Services and Ian Simpson, gm+adand Nord

The Brendanbeu will be given a makeover and the unsafe roof that's propped up on match days will be permanently strengthened, all at the taxpayers expense. When they rebuilt the stadium they went for the low initial cost high maintenance option.

That area of Glasgow needs redevelopment and putting in a National sports stadium is really good for Scotland - this is a non - issue for Rangers fans and a great deal for Glasgow and Scotland. (Father of a Commonwealth hopeful!)

We NEED the help ffs !

Shame about craptic getting anythinbut we NEED it and will LOVE the commonwealth. This is gonna create needed jobs and a new spirit to the community, it looks like it needs it from top to bottom.
