Dalmarnock development to be designed for a ‘new era of living’

KEEPMOAT Homes is to deliver 48 new homes in Dalmarnock in Glasgow’s east end after completing the purchase of land at French Street.

The range of two, three, and four-bedroom properties at the Arrolbridge development will boast enhanced insulation and solar PV panels. The site will also be connected to a district heating network.

The development will encircle a central green providing public open space, with play facilities. Named after Sir William Arrol & Co, the site pays tribute to Dalmarnock’s industrial past.

Derek Wilson, regional MD at Keepmoat Homes, said, “We’re thrilled to have secured this site, which is an exceptional location for homeowners, just a couple of miles away from the city centre of Glasgow. We are looking forward to providing much needed family homes to the area.

“All of the homes have energy saving and environmentally friendly features for our customers, as well as being connected to the wider district heating network.

“Our Arrolbridge development has been designed for a new era of living, with innovative and flexible home office spaces included in each property.”

The land was acquired from urban regeneration company, Clyde Gateway, on a partnership basis, enabling the homes to benefit from its district heating network that will be connected to each home.

Ian Manson, chief executive of Clyde Gateway, added, “We are pleased to be able to meet the growing demand for homes in the Clyde Gateway area with more and more people recognising the east end as a desirable place to live and work. Dalmarnock is perfectly located for local communities to have quick access to the city centre and first-class green spaces right on their doorstep.

“These quality new homes from Keepmoat Homes are a very welcome addition and we are particularly pleased that they will be connected to our new district heating network.”

Work is due to start on site in May 2022 and scheduled to complete in 2023.
