ASOCIAL hous­ing project in Castlemilk has been named De­vel­op­ment of the Year at this year’s Her­ald Prop­erty

Awards for Scotland in as­so­ci­a­tion with SP En­ergy Net­works.

The 130 home com­mu­nity, made up of flats and houses and de­signed to adapt to the chang­ing needs of res­i­dents, was built by Glas­gow Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion, which is part of Wheatley Group.

It was the se­cond win of the night for the group, which had ear­lier, along with its Lowther Homes di­vi­sion, seen its re­de­vel­op­ment of the former Go­van Tram De­pot in Glas­gow’s Harvie Street named as Best Re­gen­er­a­tion Project.

Calum Miller, As­so­ciate Direc­tor for new Homes with Ret­tie & Co, who spon­sored the De­vel­op­ment of the Year cat­e­gory, praised Glas­gow Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion for its win, say­ing: “The stan­dard of en­try was in­cred­i­bly high this year, I’m sure the judges had a lengthy de­bate in com­ing to an over­all win­ner.”

And there were words of praise too from Phil Pren­tice, Chief Of­fi­cer, Scotland’s Towns Part­ner­ship, which spon­sored the Best Re­gen­er­a­tion Project award. He said: “It was won­der­ful to be part of such a high pro­file and pos­i­tive event show­cas­ing all the best of Scotland’s Prop­erty In­dus­try and con­grat­u­la­tions to Glas­gow Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion and Lowther Homes for win­ning the best re­gen­er­a­tion cat­e­gory.”

Other win­ners on the night in­cluded Avant Homes, which won in the Best Show Home and Best Lux­ury Home cat­e­gories with its Rose­bury and West­bury prop­er­ties; West­point Homes, which was awarded Best Apart­ment ti­tle for its Schol­ars Court de­vel­op­ment in New­ton Mearns and also lifted the In­di­vid­ual New Build our Small De­vel­op­ment ti­tle for its Ranfurly View de­vel­op­ment in Bridge of Weir; and CALA Homes (East) which saw its Melville prop­erty at Waver­ley Heights in Balerno named Best Large Fam­ily Home and re­ceive a com­men­da­tion in the Best Show Home cat­e­gory.
