MansionhouseCALA Homes (West) has commenced work on its development of 101 homes at Mansionhouse Road in Langside.

The development – which comprises one-, two- and three-bedroom flats and a penthouse collection across three separate buildings – will be constructed sympathetically in a way that complements the area’s existing features.

Situated on the former site of the Mansionhouse hospital, which operated as part of the Victoria Infirmary, many of the apartments will provide panoramic views out over Glasgow and the west.

Following on-site demolition works, a series of essential ground preparation works took place ahead of construction starting this month.

Liana Canavan, sales and marketing director for CALA Homes (West), said: “The Mansionhouse Road development is a key part of our activity in Glasgow for 2017 and we’re very pleased to be starting work on site.

“The area is very prominent in Glasgow’s southside and we’re really looking forward to seeing the development progress. The preparation works are the first step in the process and locals will gradually begin to see the homes taking shape.”

A show apartment is expected winter 2017 with first residents expected in early spring 2018.
