Srathclyde Police recently relocated to Riverside East, Dalmarnock.

“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.”
