Councillor Aitken first visited the site in June 2018 and returned a few months later to meet parent company Chairman and CEO, Alastair Wylie, and a number of CCG’s trade apprentices.
Since starting construction in summer, 22 homes, which are created ‘off-site’ in CCG’s own manufacturing facility in Cambuslang, have been built and a large number of the properties have already been swept up via reservations.
Cllr Susan Aitken, who is also city convener for inclusive economic growth, said:
“It is great to see so much progress since I last visited Riverford Gardens. The homes are really taking shape and are getting a great response from prospective buyers.
“This development is playing a significant role in the ongoing regeneration of Pollokshaws – offering new homes in an area with great amenities, green space and links to the city centre.
“Glasgow is determined to play its role in delivering more homes across a mix of tenures, to promote regeneration and help support and drive the regional economy through house building. I’m delighted that CCG, with its own commitment to innovation and quality, is helping us achieve that.”
Alastair Wylie, Chairman and CEO of CCG, said:
“It was a pleasure to welcome Councillor Aitken back to Riverford Gardens to allow her to see how our work is progressing as well as meeting some of our trade apprentices.
“Riverford Gardens is a flagship development for our CCG Homes brand and with such an exclusive location, it is no surprise that the luxury homes on offer are under high demand with our sales return being very positive since our launch in September.
“We feel that the range of house types on offer covers a broad demographic homebuyer demographic and look forward to having our first residents in place in early 2019.”< back
