Orchard Wards on sale
NHS site likely to attract housing interest
The site of a former NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde facility has gone on sale and is likely to attract interest from house builders.
The 6.25 acre site – previously home to the Orchard Wards – is in Glasgow’s Ruchill area and is being brought to market by JLL.
It neighbours the grounds of the former Ruchill Hospital, which is expected to be released to market in 2016/17 for 300 homes.
Nina Stobie, associate director, JLL, said: “This opportunity is particularly interesting as it has the potential to be developed independently or in conjunction with the adjacent site thanks to its strategic location.
“The Orchard Wards facility was closed in 2015 with the former hospital buildings in the process of being demolished to allow a clear site for any developer.”
