Graham secures Glasgow build to rent project
The development is on the site of the former Daily Record offices
Graham has been named contractor for Platform’s £100m build to rent project on the banks of the Clyde.
The delayed 498-apartment development in Glasgow’s Finnieston district consists of four blocks of varying height, including a 20- storey tower.
It occupies a landmark riverside site close to the city centre which has lain vacant since the departure of the Daily Record newspaper in 2000.
Graham is currently onsite and the project is scheduled to complete in 2023 – two years after the original target.
Resident facilities include a rooftop garden, lounges, games rooms, gym, cycle club & café, roof terraces, and a co-working commercial area with cafe.
Detailed planning permission was granted in January 2019 and work was expected to begin that year with completion this year.
Gary Holmes, regional managing director for Graham’s duilding division said: “Private rental developments are again increasing in popularity across the UK, feeding a growing appetite of those people who want flexible, sociable and cost-effective living, and this project further bolsters our strong position in the residential sector.”
