Keepmoat Homes has signed an agreement to work in partnership with Glasgow City Council to deliver hundreds of new homes in the next phase of the flagship residential development at the Sighthill Transformational Regeneration Area (TRA) in Glasgow.
As part of the 10-year regeneration programme, which is set to inject £250m into the neighbourhood, Keepmoat will be delivering 826 new homes – 628 of which will be available for private sale and 198 for mid-market rent via Glasgow Housing Association.
The regeneration programme is being delivered by Transforming Communities: Glasgow, which is a partnership between Glasgow City Council, Glasgow Housing Association and the Scottish Government, with funding from the Glasgow City Region City deal.
As well as providing much needed high quality homes, Keepmoat will be working closely with Transforming Communities to deliver long-lasting economic and social outcomes for the people and communities of Sighthill.
James Thomson, CEO of Keepmoat Homes, said: “Sighthill is a flagship development for Keepmoat Homes. As the largest project of its kind outside of London it is a very exciting opportunity to truly transform this area of the city, creating long-term benefits. We are delighted to have been chosen to work with Glasgow City Council and Glasgow Housing Association on this exciting regeneration programme and we will employ the greatest effort and care to ensure that the ambition of Transforming Communities: Glasgow is fulfilled and, as such, create an exciting, rich and desirable place to live, work and play.
Part of the plans for the development, which is located to the north of the city, is to improve the connectivity of Sighthill to Glasgow. This will include the construction of a road bridge across the Glasgow-Edinburgh railway line, as well as the introduction of a footbridge across the M8 – a ‘street in the sky’ that will connect Sighthill to the neighbouring city centre.
