Flats finished by September
Work on a housing development on the site of the former Cambus Court Hotel is expected to be complete in September.
Apsis Solutions are building 18 flats on the site in central Cambuslang.
The first occupants are expected to move in next month.
So far, 12 of the 18 flats have been sold.
The plans had proved controversial when they were first mooted. Originally, Apsis had wanted to build 20 flats, a proposal that brought an objection from Cambuslang Community Council.
However, after reducing the figure to 18, South Lanarkshire Council granted planning permission in 2014.
Sharron McCarthy of Apsis Homes, said: “There was resistance to the plans but I think now everyone is pretty much onside.
“From a residents point of view, we had to close the road and there was rubbish in some gardens.
“All the neighbours have been great. We realise there has been disruption to them and we apologise for that.
“The weather conditions around Christmas really held us back. The first move was supposed to be in April.
“But we wanted everything to be 100 per cent. This is our baby and we’re really proud of it.”
According to Sharron, most of the buyers are from the Cambuslang area, but there are people coming from places like Cumbernauld, Inverkip and even Elgin.
Some of the flats have even been designed by the buyers.
The Cambus Court Hotel was a grade B listed Victorian building on Central Avenue which stood for 142 years.
However, it closed in 2006 after it was sold by former owner Joe De Freitas.
A fire ripped through the building in 2011 and it had to be pulled down in June 2013.
