Victoria Infirmary site sold to Sanctuary Group
August 2 20169.5 acre site of the former Victoria Infirmary to Sanctuary Group to facilitate a residential-led development.
The hospital has lain vacant since last October following the transfer of services to the new Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, sparking a flurry of bids from house builders and developers.
Sanctuary, a non-profit provider of care services and housing, have pledged to retain ‘key heritage features’ of the sprawling hospital in addition to new build homes although (apart from one listed building) no decision has yet been taken as to which features to preserve.
Peter Martin, Sanctuary’s group director of development, said: “We are delighted to be buying the old Victoria site and are committed to listening to local communities to select the best development solution.
“Our plans are to retain the key heritage features of the site while delivering a beautiful place to live.”
A pre-planning consultation drive will now get underway over the coming weeks together with the appointment of a project architect.
