Sanctuary Scotland’s £50 million regeneration of Anderston, Glasgow, has received further external recognition.
Phase 3A in Argyle Street won Affordable Housing Development of the Year at The Herald Property Awards for Scotland 2014. The award was presented to Sanctuary’s Roddy Macdonald and Calum Murray of project contractor CCG (Scotland) Ltd at a ceremony in Glasgow.
£6.5 million was spent on Phase 3A to create 49 residential properties and a retail unit. The 49 homes comprise five town houses and 44 flats now occupied by Sanctuary tenants who resided in the soon-to-be-demolished Phases 4 and 5. Phase 3B, comprising a further 109 homes, is currently on site and is due to complete in February. Phases 4 and 5 are being worked up with a view to commencing on site next year.
The Herald Property Award is the second honour given to Phase 3A in recent months. Project architect Collective Architecture won the Large Scale Housing Development category at the Saltire Housing Design Awards, where judges praised the attention to detail, the finishes in the communal spaces, and the well-considered space standards among other aspects.
