High-quality apartments, specially designed for older residents and built by Glasgow-based affordable housing developer Lovell for leading retirement housing provider Bield Housing & Care, have scooped a major industry award.
St Andrew’s View - a brand-new development of 20 shared ownership apartments in the Glasgow suburb of Bearsden – was named Senior Living Development of the Year at the 8th annual Scottish Home Awards which highlight excellence in the Scottish housebuilding industry.
The awards judges described the development as “a beautiful, tranquil and integral part of this new community which is close to all amenities. St Andrew’s View has a strong community emphasis which we thought provided a complete service with a deep understanding of senior living needs”.
The new apartments – designed by Glasgow architects Network Five and located six miles north of Glasgow city centre - are attracting strong interest with fourteen of the 20 new one- and two-bedroom homes already reserved.
Bield sales and marketing manager Susan Jackson says: “We are absolutely delighted that St Andrew’s View has been awarded this top industry accolade. It says something about the quality of the build and the concept behind St Andrew’s View that we have won in this category before the development has welcomed its first buyer. St Andrew’s View offers a different approach and more. It will offer the older buyer the chance to enjoy an exciting and liberating phase of their life while continuing to enjoy the freedom of independent living – with the option of the right help when you need it.”
Lovell regional director Alan Taylor adds: “It’s fantastic to see St Andrew’s View showcased at the Scottish Home Awards. Our construction team is very proud to have helped deliver these impressive properties which have been built to a very high standard and are designed specifically to meet the needs of older residents.”
The Scottish Home Awards is an independent awards programme which was founded in 2007 to recognise excellence in the Scottish housebuilding industry.
