The £250m Sighthill scheme is the biggest regeneration scheme of its type outside of London. It will consist of 826 new homes, as well as retail units and a commercial development over the next decade.
Keepmoat was named preferred bidder last October building on the success of Morgan Sindall Construction which is on site delivering road and utility infrastructure until 2019.
The new mid-market rent homes will be built by Glasgow Housing Association with the private homes, retail unit and commercial development being delivered through a development agreement between Keepmoat Homes and Glasgow City Council.
Councillor Kenny McLean, City Convener for Neighbourhoods, Housing and Public Realm at Glasgow City Council, said: “We can now anticipate this work starting and being able to watch the skyline of both Sighthill and Glasgow change over the years. I look forward to working with all our partners on the Sighthill TRA on this exciting project for Glasgow.”
James Thomson, CEO of Keepmoat Homes, said: “Sighthill is a flagship development for Keepmoat Homes. We are delighted to have been chosen to work with Glasgow City Council and Glasgow Housing Association on this exciting regeneration programme.
“We are committed to delivering wider community benefits as part of the programme which will include the creation of apprenticeships and jobs in the area and work with local community projects.”
