Simpson’s at home in Springfield
Progress Property Development (PPD) are in negotiations with Glasgow City Council to construct an athletes village for the 2014 Commonwealth Games on Springfield Road, Glasgow.

PPD have formed a collaborative partnership with Mace Group as construction manager & City Building (Glasgow) LLP for Construction Services.

Designed by Ian Simpson Architects the project will accommodate a hotel, conference suites, security pens, media zones, shopping and entertainment facilities.

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.

Several other bidders are in the running for the site including:

Broadway Malyan Consortium led by Broadway Malyan with Arup, Drivers Jonas and regeneration company New City Vision.
City Legacy Consortium led by Davis Langdon with architect RMJM, developers Cruden Estates and McTaggart & Mickel, and contractors Citybuilding and CCG.
Gladedale Consortium led by Gladedale with Bellway Homes and Citta Property Group, the Australian developer which built the Melbourne Commonwealth Games.
