Park Quadrant, GlasgowExpresso Property and development partner Ambassador Developments (Park Quadrant) Ltd have announced the beginning of on-site works at a 98 apartment development in Glasgow’s West End.

Designed by architects Holmes Miller, Park Quadrant will complete the vision of the architect Charles Wilson’s concentric ringed design of a 19th century masterplan of the area. Building will complete in 2020 and will support up to 500 construction jobs.

Nick Robinson of Expresso Property said: “In conjunction with our development partners, we are pleased to announce that on-site works have now commenced for the highly sought-after Park Quadrant Residences. Being on site with construction underway underlines our commitment and confidence to deliver the development that will complete ‘the missing piece’ of Charles Wilson’s original Park Area masterplan.”
