Half of flats are sold
Hotel site popular
Half the new homes on the site of the former Cambus Court Hotel have already been sold.
Hamilton-based Apsis Solutions were last year granted planning permission for the creation of 18 flats on the site, which has been named Sycamore Gardens.
Work is now underway on the development, with it due to be completed in the spring of next year.
A spokesman for Apsis said: “We are delighted to have 50 per cent of our development already sold from plan.
“With nine units already sold, we now have limited availability.”
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 Kilbride-based firm PVP, 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.
