Residents have complained that the flats being built are too expensive, and the needs of poorer local residents are being overlooked.
But Glasgow City Council head of planning John Bury said the criticisms did not take into account the way the development was rolling out.
He said: 'There has been a lot of success and everybody wants a share of it. Regeneration is an inclusive process and everyone in Glasgow should benefit.
He added that the council was trying to encourage people who can afford upmarket homes to buy in the city.
