Build-to-rent giant plans £105m Glasgow scheme
Build-to-rent developer Moda has submitted plans for a £105m scheme at the former headquarters of Strathclyde Police in Glasgow.
The private rental sector (PRS) specialist recently bought the site, and plans extensive redevelopment work, including demolition of existing structures to created a “modern, multi-building development”.
The Pitt Street complex will comprise 365 apartments, ranging from studios through to three-bedroom apartments, and 20,000 sq ft of cafes, restaurants, gym, cinema and workspaces plus landscaping and gardens.
Srathclyde Police recently relocated to Riverside East, Dalmarnock.
Oscar Brooks, head of acquisitions for Moda (pictured), said: “The old Strathclyde Police headquarters is a fantastic site right in the heart of Glasgow, and matches our vision of delivering high-quality housing for rent in city centre locations across the United Kingdom.
“As an investor, developer, owner and operator we are here for the long-term and aim to knit ourselves into the city’s fabric. We are excited to be working with Glasgow City Council in delivering high quality homes, which help meet a pressing need for decent rental accommodation.”
