A DEVELOPMENT of 68 flats for social rent in Glasgow’s East End has been completed.
Paisley-based construction firm, The JR Group built the properties on Olympia Street in Bridgeton on behalf of Link Group.
The four apartment blocks now fully occupied following a 19-month construction period. Six of the flats were designed and built with wheelchair access in mind.
As well as parking provision, residents also enjoy access to a common landscaped garden at the centre of the development.
JR Group construction director, John Murdoch, said: “When we took on the development at Olympia Street, we were conscious of just how tight the site itself was, but we relish a challenge -– especially one that presents an opportunity to work on a project that will leave a substantial legacy.
“The vision behind Olympia Street was to create a sustainable collection of residences that people would really want to live in. And, with the homes aimed at people with diverse yet specific needs, there was a real chance to use innovative design and construction technology to ensure the finished development was as integrated as possible and set up to be enjoyed by future generations.
“In Olympia Street, we are proud to have built an exemplar model of affordable inner-city housing with a distinct sense of place.”
