Get Living press ahead with High Street vision
June 27 2018
Get Living have entered into negotiations with Glasgow City Council to discuss public contributions to infrastructure, affordable housing and schools after the council expresssed that it was minded to grant planning approval for a £200m build to rent project off High Street.
Full approval would clear the way for Get Living to bring its build to rent model to the city with the aim of attracting millennial tenants aged between 21 and 35.
The rental provider has sought the opinions of 3,000 UK Millenials, including 223 in Scotland, to guage demand for its offer as it expands beyond London, establishing that just a quarter of homeowners in this age bracket are able to save money with 57% admitting they underestimated the cost of ownership.
Rick de Blaby, Get Living’s executive deputy chairman, said: “We have listened closely to local people when shaping our £200m proposal to transform a derelict site on Glasgow’s High Street into a new green neighbourhood with more than 700 great homes for rent.
“Our plans are a sign of our commitment to the future prosperity of Glasgow and will convert an area rich in history into a thriving part of the city’s future. We are excited by the prospect of working with the people and businesses of Glasgow to realise the potential of both High Street and the wider city.”
Ground investigation works have already been carried out on-site pending final go-ahead for the Stallan-Brand design.
