Work has officially started on plans by Wheatley Group to develop 32 new affordable homes in the centre of Glasgow.

Funded with aid from Glasgow City Council – who’ve supported the development with a £2.4m grant – the project will see contractor CCG build:

  • 32 affordable homes
  • 29 of those will be two-bedroom flats

  • 3 properties to be one-bedroom properties designed for wheelchair users
  • Total of 5 parking spaces including three suitable for wheeler users – all with EV charging ports
  • Outdoor amenity space
  • ‘Glasgow Standard’ for space and energy efficiency to be achieved on all homes

Designed by John Gilbert Architects the homes will be managed by Lowther Homes – part of the Wheatley Group, and the development is likely to be completed by the Summer of 2021.

David Fletcher, Director of Development at Wheatley Group, said: “We’re looking forward to seeing these new city centre homes take shape. Mid-market rent is a great option for people who may not qualify for social housing and help with the supply of affordable homes across the city.”
