CALA Homes (West) has acquired the former Jordanhill Campus and has announced it is to invest almost £100 million in redeveloping the 31-acre site.
With the first homes to be delivered by early 2020, the housebuilder said the development – which has been tipped to create more than 200 jobs during construction – will be known as Jordanhill Park and feature more than 400 “high quality” homes.
Jordanhill Campus was vacated by its previous owner, the University of Strathclyde, in 2012.
CALA said Jordanhill Park will “protect and enhance” greenspace within the site, retain the Category B-listed David Stow building and ensure the existing playing fields remain open to the local community.
Designed by 7N, Jordanhill Park will offer a range of homes from one-bedroom flats to five-bedroom detached houses.
Jim McIntyre, managing director of CALA Homes (West) said, “We’re extremely proud of our plans for the former Jordanhill Campus and we’d like to thank the University of Strathclyde for its support throughout the planning and land acquisition process. Jordanhill Park is a landmark development for CALA, with its mix of homes to suit all, from young professionals to growing families and downsizers. Located in the heart of Glasgow, this development will provide the city with much needed well-built, high quality homes.
“We have an excellent reputation in the UK of providing communities with aspirational and award-winning homes and it is this experience which we intend to extend, with a sensitive approach, at Jordanhill Park.”
