Housebuilder targets Glasgow city centre with Prince's Quay

Housebuilder CALA is switching its attention from suburbia to the city centre with plans to build 203 homes on the former Garden Festival site at Pacific Quay.

Prince's Quay will bring a mix of apartments and townhouses to the market upon completion in early 2021.

Liana Canavan, sales and marketing director for CALA Homes (West), said: “Like every other homebuilder we’ve faced challenges in recent months due to lockdown restrictions, but as these have gradually eased, we’re delighted that construction has been able to resume, bringing us one step closer to welcoming our first residents to this fantastic development.

“Prince’s Quay will offer a unique opportunity to live in an unrivalled central location while experiencing the ultimate in modern urban living.” 

The development will be formally launched next week with virtual tours of the accommodation offered to potential buyers.

I'm pretty sure this is already well underway?

To give better access to Cessnock subway station for developments in that area it would be good if there was a footpath going straight north Cessnock Street where it meets Brand Street up to Govan Road, past the warehouses there. As there is no short cut at that point it means a detour of around 500 meters down past near where the Louden tavern is at Harvey Street.

They should have stayed in the 'burbs.

I don't think they are 'switching their attention' UR..CALA are still punting out dross across suburbia's everywhere, only now in city centre's too.
Why is this utter dross given the time of day!?

I wish they advertised property by the m2 in the UK like is the norm on mainland Europe, you would find that modern flats are some of the smallest anywhere. Flat areas by m2 are in home reports but often the figures are too high and it's hard to get access to them. We used to build flats properly with the spacious size of old tenements, where did it all go wrong now that new flats are tiny.

Any truth in the rumour this website was going to change its name to “Suburban Realm” ?

#1 Yes, construction has now resumed on-site.
#6 I think Bourbon Realm sounds more interesting.

#5 - yeah, this is SO apparent here. The end of the sofa is almost opposite the kitchen sink in that last render. Cala stuff is always more expensive than their competitors, it's pretty wild that its still so measly.

The House of Bourbon may be more appropriate for a realm...
