Kelvin Properties double down on BTR with Mitchell Apartments launch

Kelvin Properties have launched their second build to rent development in Glasgow, a collection of 20 flats at Charing Cross designed by Holmes Miller Architects.

Mitchell Apartments is on the rise at a disused church at 15 Kent Road, latterly a restaurant, close to the Mitchell Library, with occupation expected from January.

Managing director Stephen McKechnie, commented: “I identified the site a couple of years ago and was convinced it would make for a great build to rent project because of the proximity to the city centre, the Finneston Strip and the University of Glasgow.

“Currently, far fewer people live in our city centre than cities such as Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool but with demand for housing and the changing nature of offices and work, that has to change.

“We’re continuing to look for more BTR development opportunities in the city centre and the surrounding areas.”

Following hot on the heels from Candleriggs Court the Mitchell Apartments will include resident bike spaces and private balconies on nine of the flats, offering views to the south and north over the Mitchell.

A lot of news items recently about new BTR developments popping up in Glasgow. Not convinced it is the only answer to GCC's ambition to double the city population by 2035, however time will tell.
That aside, this development looks the part. A decent contextual response on a constrained site.
