Housing provider Sanctuary Scotland has received further industry recognition for its regeneration of Anderston, Glasgow.

Anderston Phase 3 beat four other finalists to win Large Affordable Housing Development of the Year at the Scottish Home Awards.

This latest recognition follows the Saltire Society and Herald Property awards Sanctuary’s £50 million regeneration project received last year.

Phase 3 cost £17 million and features 158 affordable homes built in partnership with construction firm CCG (Scotland) and architects Collective Architecture and Cooper Cromar.

Its completion allowed the final Sanctuary residents to move from damp and draughty 1960s-built blocks into the award-winning development.

Gordon Laurie, director – Sanctuary in Scotland, said: “We are thrilled to win this award for Anderston Phase 3, particularly since the quality of the other shortlisted developments was so high.

“It is a fitting honour for everyone involved in the project, all of whom made this recognition possible.”

Sanctuary’s regeneration of Anderston has created a total of 334 affordable flats, maisonettes and town houses since 2011.

Phase 4 will create another 86 homes off St Vincent Street, all for social rent. The existing blocks are currently being demolished ahead of a site start in January 2016.
