WORK is underway on residential development at the former Calderwood Lodge Primary School in the south side of Glasgow.
Overlooking Newlands Park on Calderwood Road, the school closed in 2017 and was purchased by private housing developer CCG Homes
Planning permission was given to create a development of 20 luxury homes earlier this year.
Demolition of a two-storey 1960s classroom block has already been completed whilst works are ongoing to a Victorian sandstone villa that will be conserved and upgraded to form part of the new Calderwood Lodge development.
Four two and three-bedroom apartments will be contained within the villa with a further 15 two and three-bedroom new-build apartments -– including two penthouses -– alongside a three-bedroom, mews house.
Landscaped, communal gardens and private parking will also be provided.
CCG Homes managing director, Calum Murray, said: “This is a big milestone for CCG Homes. Calderwood Lodge is an incredibly exciting project.
“Formal construction works will now be undertaken by CCG (Scotland) with the restoration of the Victorian villa and the new-build construction of the new homes each forming a truly unique offering to be part of Glasgow’s heritage in one of the city’s most sought-after postcodes.
“We have received an incredible amount of sales interest in the development.”
CCG Homes are currently live on a second development, in Cambuslang. Western Terrace was launched this autumn with 13 of their 17 ‘early-bird’ release properties now sold from a total of 81 two and three-bedroom homes. The development is set for completion in early 2023.
