Glasgow tenants have moved into a new multi-million-pound development with residents praising their homes.

Residents say they "can't believe" their new homes at the £25.9m development at Sighthill Circus in North Glasgow.

Located near the new Sighthill Bridge the properties include a mix of 86 one and two-bedroom flats and two and three-bedroom homes, all for mid-market rent.

Alan Morton, who is a Lowther tenant part of the Wheatley Group, said that the homes appeal to him as he can visit family members easily due to the close access the development has to the M8 motorway.

He said: “It’s wonderful. I still pinch myself because I look at this beautiful flat and can’t believe it’s mine.

“One of my favourite things is how close it is to everything. I’m just a 20-minute walk from the city centre and it’s close to the motorway too, so I can easily visit my dad.

“It’s exactly what I was looking for – it’s just been a really great experience.”

The mid-market rent properties are aimed at people and families who cannot afford to buy their own property or rent in the private sector or have very low priority for social housing.

And the development is part of the £250million Sighthill Transformational Regeneration Area (TRA), with Wheatley Group claiming that it is the biggest regeneration scheme of its type in the UK outside of London. 

The homes included £9.7m funding from the Scottish Government and Glasgow City Council.

Another Lowther tenant Alana Stewart said: “It’s brilliant. It’s so spacious, but still feels cosy.

“I really like the kitchen, it’s so big and open and we get a lot of natural light in.

“I also love the view we have of the Sighthill Bridge. It’s beautiful at night when we look out and it’s all lit up.”

Paul McLennan, housing minister, said: “The right to a warm, safe and affordable home is critical to wellbeing and is a right everyone deserves.

“Lowther, part of the Wheatley Group, play a valuable role in increasing the range of housing available to rent throughout Scotland, and I was delighted to see this development, which the Scottish Government has supported with £4.2 million of funding.

“This funding has enabled Lowther to provide 86 high-quality, energy-efficient homes in Sighthill.

“High-quality housing is a key pillar of Housing to 2040, whilst also eradicating fuel poverty and homelessness and ensuring everyone has access to green space and essential services."
