A FLATS development is to be progressed at the former Bellahouston Academy buildings in Cessnock.
Thirty-six affordable flats for social rent will be built by AS Homes (Scotland) on the site of derelict gymnasium and swimming pool structures.
Home Group will assume ownership and management of the development upon completion, which is scheduled for winter 2023.
Sale of the site was overseen by Graeme Todd of of chartered surveyors DM Hall, who acted on behalf of the site’s owner, Rasul Group.
He said: “The Bellahouston Academy site has been transformed by our client, Rasul Group from a dilapidated former high school into a thriving business centre.
“The former annex, bounded by Paisley Road West, Clifford Street and North Gower Street, lies within an area with much to commend it, including proximity to a variety of retail facilities and good transport links via the M8 motorway network.”
Paul Kelly, managing director of AS Homes (Scotland) said: “We are delighted to be acting in a development partnership arrangement with Home Group to provide further, and much needed, social housing.”
