Contractor GRAHAM has secured a key Glasgow residential build to rent project on the banks of the Clyde on behalf of developer PLATFORM_.
The 498-apartment development consists of four blocks of varying height, including a 20- storey tower, on a landmark riverside site close to the city centre which has lain vacant since the departure of the Daily Record newspaper in 2000.
GRAHAM is currently onsite for enabling and the site is scheduled to complete in 2023.
Resident facilities include a rooftop garden, lounges, games rooms, gym, cycle club & café, roof terraces, and a co-working commercial area with cafe.
Gary Holmes, Regional Managing Director for GRAHAM’s Building division said:
“Private rental developments are again increasing in popularity across the UK, feeding a growing appetite of those people who want flexible, sociable and cost-effective living, and this project further bolsters our strong position in the residential sector. The facilities we are constructing for PLATFORM_ will provide high quality apartments, incorporating the full range of lifestyle and amenity facilities which today’s urban professional renters expect.”
Matt Willcock, Development Director at PLATFORM_ said:
“We’re looking forward to launching PLATFORM_ Glasgow. The building will not only help redevelop the local area but will provide much needed housing to cope with high demand. BTR is a new, upward trend that offers high-quality rented accommodation at competitive prices for a wide-ranging demographic.”
