Glasgow BTR project set for summer launch

A ‘landmark’ Glasgow Build-to-Rent (BTR) housing development will be delivered in the heart of Merchant City this summer with the delivery of 36 apartments.

Tay Letting has been appointed to market the development, which has been tipped to help meet the ‘surge’ in demand for quality rental properties.

The project represents the first major BTR delivery in Merchant City. Kelvin Properties is driving the Candleriggs Court initiative, which is based within a ‘discreet’ courtyard.

Candleriggs Court comprises a mix of one, two, and three-bedroom apartments featuring German-engineered kitchens from Hacker and Porcelanosa tiling in the bathrooms. The development will also include bike spaces, underground parking for residents and a communal garden.

Marc Taylor, director at Tay Letting said, “BTR developments will play an increasing role in solving Glasgow’s property puzzle – and our appointment to bring these 36 high-spec apartments to market is hugely exciting for Tay Letting. The development offers flexibility, as the mix of apartment layouts caters to a range of budgets and has already generated significant tenant interest.”

Stephen McKechnie, managing director at Kelvin Properties added, “Glasgow is a dynamic and thriving city that needs more residential development to help it to flourish. Kelvin Properties is excited to be delivering one of Merchant City’s first BTR development and contributing to the wider regeneration of the city core. Kelvin Properties has a proven track-record of delivering quality developments, such as Sandringham Court in Newton Mearns and The Atrium in Broomhill, and we’re are on track to deliver a sought-after development that will enhance the urban fabric of Glasgow.”
