324 build to rent homes on the rise at Buchanan Wharf

Drum Property Group has confirmed it is to break ground on 324 build to rent (BTR) properties at its Buchanan Wharf development in Glasgow this week.

The developer has teamed up with Legal & General to secure funding for twin eighteen storey terracotta towers comprising 280,000sq/ft of accommodation including a dedicated dining hall, gym, lounge and games room.

A 4,240sq/ft roof terrace will also afford tenants a lofty perspective of the River Clyde and city centre skyline from the Stallan-Brand designed scheme.

Graeme Bone, group managing director of Drum Property Group commented: “With prime office space plus an exciting mix of homes, local amenities and open public spaces, Buchanan Wharf will be a stimulating and attractive environment in which to work, live and to visit. It is now transforming not just this neglected part of the waterfront but the entire city centre of Glasgow, once again placing the River Clyde at the heart of the city’s economic and cultural regeneration.”

Dan Batterton, head of build to rent at LGIM Real Assets, added: “We are delighted to be breaking ground on our first BTR development in Scotland. Buchanan Wharf is an exciting scheme, set to have a significant positive socio-economic impact on this area of Glasgow.”

Construction work is well underway on Barclay’s Northern Europe campus HQ.
