Welcome for £6m investment in Toryglen
A new £6million housing development in Toryglen has been officially named and “put on the map” ahead of homes going on sale next year.
King’s View, a project from Cruden Homes, is based to the north of Prospecthill Road, near Prospecthill Circus.
Bailie Liz Cameron, a former Lord Provost, performed the naming as she unveiled a new five- metre sign shaped like a Google map pin.
The site is one of eight Transformational Regenerational Areas (TRA) in Glasgow and will comprise of 55 one, two and three bedroom homes for private sale.
Units will be sold January.
Bailie Cameron, chair of Transforming Communities: Glasgow and Executive Member for Jobs and the Economy at Glasgow City Council, said: “I am delighted to see the launch of this affordable housing development, a key part of what the partners in Transforming Communities: Glasgow wish to achieve in this area.
“New homes of high quality and further economic activity can only be good for the city.”
She was joined at the ceremony by John Gallacher, Managing Director of Cruden Homes and Gordon Sloan, Chair of Glasgow Housing Association.
Cruden are also building 100 homes in the TRA on behalf of the housing association. The city council say this will boost the economy, create jobs and deliver new homes as well as community facilities.
John Gallacher said: “Cruden is proud to play its part in delivering much-
‘off plan’ from needed new affordable private housing at King’s View and by working in partnership with GHA we are building a new mixed tenure community in this part of Glasgow.
“We expect the King’s View development will attract the same high level of demand for quality, affordable homes that we witnessed at The Village.
“Buying ‘off plan’ is again becoming the norm for new housing developments and allows the buyer to prepare and plan their finances six to nine months in advance.”
GHA Chair Gordon Sloan added: “This is another significant milestone in our ambitious plans to regenerate Toryglen.
“With the nearby homes for GHA tenants now taking shape, these homes for sale will give more people further choice for affordable housing in the area.”
