WORK is underway on a riverside development at Johnston Avenue, Stirling, which will see 24 homes built on the site adjacent to the River Forth and nearby the Wallace Monument.
Forth Housing Association appointed Cruden Building East to deliver this project, which has been tipped to provide ‘much needed’ affordable and sustainable homes to the Cornton area of Stirling. The value of the project is £3.7 million.
The development, designed by ARM Architects, will comprise a mix of two and three-bedroom semi-detached houses, two-bedroom terraced houses and one and two-bedroom cottage flats. Cruden revealed that all the properties have been elevated to reflect the riverside location of the site.
The development is due to be completed by late June 2022.
Allan Callaghan, MD of Cruden Building East, said, “We are delighted to continue our strong working relationship with Forth Housing Association as we commence work on this exciting new development to bring all important energy efficient, high quality, affordable new homes to Johnston Avenue. As with all our developments, we are fully committed to giving back to the local area by providing a wealth of community benefits, including work placements, apprenticeship placements, and tender and training opportunities for local businesses.”
Gordon Mason, chair of Forth Housing Association, added, “Construction work has started on the second phase of regeneration at Johnston Avenue and we are confident that once completed, these further 24 properties will help to address the rising demand for high quality sustainable homes which are affordable for people in the local area.”
