Barlanark is a district in the Scottish city of Glasgow. It is east of the districts of Budhill, Shettleston and Springboig, north west of Baillieston, west of Springhill and Swinton and south of Easterhouse, Easthall and Wellhouse (separated by Edinburgh Road (A8)).
Barlanark housing scheme was developed in response to the city's grave post-war housing needs: In 1952/53 over 2300 3/4-bedroom apartments were constructed and rented out to 'Corporation' tenants. There were also 5-apartment semi-detached houses, and 3-apartment terraced houses built, next to the Estate of Barlanark House, which was constructed by David Hamilton in 1822, demolished in 1954.
The Calvay Centre was opened in 2007, replacing the block of flats and shopping area. The Centre has a 12 place IT Suite as part of John Wheatley College's Learning Network, a 24 place nursery operated by Glasgow East Regeneration Agency and a family centre operated by Quarriers. The Centre is used to provide services for the local community and to offer meeting spaces for local groups and organisations.
