Robertson Group acquires McTaggart stake in Urban Union
Bill Robertson and Neil McKay
Robertson Group has acquired the 50% share owned by McTaggart Construction in regeneration specialist Urban Union.
Urban Union, established as a 50/50 joint venture in 2011 by Robertson Group and McTaggart Construction, was created in response to a regeneration opportunity in Glasgow.
Several similar opportunities followed, and Urban Union now delivers affordable and private housing in key regeneration areas across Scotland. It currently operates four developments – Laurieston Living and Pollokshaws Living in Glasgow, Pennywell Living in Edinburgh and Muirton Living in Perth.
The company is also working in partnership with Robertson and Queens Cross Housing Association delivering a 600-unit mixed tenure development at Hamiltonhill in Glasgow.
Urban Union will continue to operate its own distinct brand and retain its existing staff while benefiting from closer partnerships across Robertson’s extensive range of businesses and expertise.
The acquisition by Robertson comes after a strong end to 2019 for Urban Union, having recently grown its staff base.
