Half of all new flats snapped up
Nearly half the flats on the site of the old Cambus Court Hotel have already been sold.
South Lanarkshire Council granted planning permission to the site’s owners Hamilton-based Apsis Solutions, for the creation of 18 flats on the site, which has been named Sycamore Gardens.
Work is now underway on the site, with it due to be completed in the spring of next year.
Sharron McCarthy from Apsis Homes said: “We are very happy with the response so far - almost 50 per cent sold - and are now embarking on a further sales campaign to secure reservations on our remaining properties.
“We have had good positive interest and more encouragingly prospective purchasers are fully embracing our Lets Create project, which allows the purchaser to create and design the internal footprint of their new home – at no extra cost.
“Apsis Homes are committed to cocreate with our community and with the build itself already well underway, we are on target for completion April 2016.”
The homes are being built on the site of the former Grade B listed Victorian building in Central Avenue, which had not been used as a hotel since 2006, after it was sold by former owner Joe De Freitas.
In June 2013, the 142-year-old building had to be pulled down after being exposed to the elements after being badly damaged in a 2011 fire.
Last year we reported that the site was sold by the previous owners, East Kilbridebased firm PVP, on October 11 to Apsis.
The sale came just four months after South Lanarkshire Council’s planning committee granted PVP permission to build 20 apartments on the site of the Cambus Court.
Cambuslang Community Council had strongly opposed the previous plans for 20 flats on the site of the hotel, but there was a general consensus that the plans for 18 flats from Apsis were more acceptable than the previous PVP application.
