Residents move into 206 mixed-tenure Anderston homes
October 16 2018
Sanctuary Scotland have completed the latest phases of a residential-led masterplan for Glasgow’s Anderston district, replacing 1960s flats with modern homes and reinstating lost streetscape.
Delivered by CCG and Collective Architecture the project has seen 206 mixed-tenure homes built on the city centre site, finished in a combination of sandstone and brick to reinvigorate sightlines along St Vincent Street.
CCG Chairman and CEO, Alastair Wylie, commented: “Manufactured under factory-controlled conditions, the ‘iQ’ system has a much-improved level of air tightness when compared with traditional methods. This, aligned with use of energy efficient appliances and solar PV, will encourage energy savings and minimise fuel costs for residents.
“The project also had to be delivered at pace due to instances of rehoming some existing residents and as components such as windows, doors and insulation are pre-installed, a faster speed of construction could be achieved. The entire development was erected, wind and watertight (excluding closes) in just 36 weeks.”
Spread across five separate blocks the development includes amenity and green spaces as well as all new cycle and pedestrian routes. Selected homes also benefit from floor to ceiling windows and balconies to make the most of city views.
