Site clearance begins for giant Glasgow build-to-rent project
February 21 2019
Moda Living has moved on-site with a major private rented sector development in Glasgow city centre with the commencement of demolition works at the former Strathclyde Police headquarters.
Holland Park will comprise 433 apartments designed by Haus-Collective arranged around the Pitt Street block in a series of buildings ranging in height from six to 22 storeys, incorporating landscaped roof gardens, communal lounges and amenity space.
Built in phases from 1924 the Pitt Street offices served as the headquarters of Strathclyde Police until the merger of all eight Scottish Police Forces in 2013.
Moda MD Tony Brooks commented: “With demolition works now underway we are one step closer to redeveloping this fantastic site into high-quality rental housing. As a long-term investor, owner and operator, we are here for the long-term with the aim of creating healthy, social, connected communities. We will continue to work with the city council to help shape plans, creating an iconic building of the future.”
Demolition work by Dem-Master is expected to conclude by the end of September with construction taking a further two and a half years.
