Newlands housing development given green light
CCG Homes has secured planning permission for a housing development at the former Calderwood Lodge Primary School in Newlands.
A planning application submitted in early-2020 under the intent to deliver 20 two-and three-bedroom homes for sale has now been approved by Glasgow City Council.
Design proposals include the sensitive conversion of an early-20th century sandstone villa to create four, two and three-bedroom apartments, complemented by a two-storey, three-bedroom mews house extension. The existing adjacent 1960s classroom blocks will be demolished to create a further fifteen, two and three-bedroom contemporary apartments including two penthouses on the top floor.
Landscaped, communal gardens and private parking will also be provided with the adjacent Newlands Park offering additional amenity and recreational space as well as fantastic views across the city.
The demolition and construction will formally commence in June with a formal sales launch expected later in the summer.
CCG Homes managing director, Calum Murray, said: “I am delighted that CCG Homes has secured this development site. We have worked diligently with our architects Stallan-Brand over the last year to deliver a design that has wonderful character. It balances a rich heritage with modern, new house building to create a truly unique offer for buyers and we look forward to bringing the site to the market in the near future.”
Calderwood Lodge is the latest development to be taken forward by CCG Homes in the south of the city following ‘Riverford Gardens’ in Pollokshaws, a development that sold out earlier this year.
Mr Murray added: “Everyone involved in the delivery of Riverford Gardens has to be highly commended for their efforts over the last two years. It’s a remarkable achievement to have sold out the development given the circumstances that have surrounded the economy in the last year.
“We hope to carry this success forward in 2021 as we deliver more desirable homes across Glasgow and the West with Calderwood Lodge as well as our forthcoming development, Western Terrace, in Cambuslang which will also be launching very soon. It is a very exciting time for CCG Homes.”
