Sold-out Maryhill townhouse development complete

A 33-home townhouse development in Glasgow’s Maryhill area has been completed.

Led by Bigg Regeneration, a partnership between Places for People Capital and Scottish Canals, managed by igloo, Lochgilp Street is the fourth development delivered as part of the Maryhill Locks Masterplan and comprises a mix of three and four-bedroom properties.

Designed by JM Architects and built by CCG, 10 of the homes sold on the first day of release. The entire development sold out from plan in a matter of months.

Features include electric car charging capability and a ‘hidden garden’ located to the rear.

Gary Watt, igloo director said, “We’re incredibly proud to have handed over these homes to the newest residents of Maryhill Locks, which has fast become a great place to live and call home. Lochgilp Street will only add to the wonderful sense of place that is emerging at this quite unique part of Glasgow, where the canal meets the River Kelvin. The mix of contemporary architecture and low energy construction means the character is defined by good design, and is good for the planet too.”

CCG MD David Wylie added, “Lochgilp Street is a truly outstanding proposition for those looking to get on to the property ladder, or to step up or right size from existing homes. With great proximity to both the west end and city centre, we are not surprised that this development has been so popular with buyers. For CCG, this is the second phase of the Maryhill Locks Masterplan and we were delighted to be involved with Bigg Regeneration once again. All of the homes have been constructed to the highest quality standards and with the added benefit of solar panels, they are also incredibly energy efficient, ensuring that the lucky homeowners will benefit from a reduction in their energy bills.”

JM Architects design director, Henry McKeown commented, “The project was a delight to work on, a terrific site, an enlightened client and a top class contractor. As the project architect, we couldn’t ask for any more.”
