FIRST GLIMPSE INSIDE £40M DEVELOPMENT

Our new Glasgow-based property management company BOHO has released a first glimpse inside the £40m GDV Scotway House development.

BOHO has been set up by Structured House Group (shg) to manage our portfolio of properties including student, hotel and residential developments.

Our flagship development is Scotway House alongside Glasgow’s historic harbour and the former site of Meadowside Shipyard office.

BOHO will manage and run the building which will house around 400 students when it opens its doors in September 2019. A first glimpse inside the modern, tech-savvy and character-filled property has been released today with CGI images of what students can expect as it launches its booking service for academic year 2019.

Craig Inglis, CEO of Structured House Group, said: “It is important to us that we not only build but manage the properties we develop. Scotway House will be home to the next generation of changemakers along the Clydeside and we want our residents to have a great experience, to socialise, and to thrive in the city. BOHO, our in-house property management arm, will ensure we can create the communities we wish to build, get to know our neighbours, and look after our residents.”

BOHO is working with award-winning KKA Interior on the interior design of a three-storey dedicated study and socialising space within the property. Scotway House will also offer residents spacious rooms (15-51m2) with superfast wi-fi throughout, River Clyde views, a roof terrace, cinema, gym, group and private study pods, courtyard garden, group cooking, dining area and TV/gaming area.

Christine Young, BOHO Operations Director, said “We want Scotway House to have personality and to be a place where everyone feels at home. With the best study and social spaces and most up-to-date technology, our residents can get together to study, cook, eat, socialise or just relax in this stunning building. We’re looking forward to opening our doors in September 2019 and welcoming people to our thriving city.”

 

Scotway House will open for the new academic year beginning September 2019. To find out more about booking go to www.atboho.com

MILESTONE MARKED AT SCOTWAY HOUSE

Structured House Group, GRAHAM, NIXON & BOHO attend ‘topping out’ on historic site.

The team behind the latest development along the historic Clydeside at Scotway House marked a significant milestone as they reached the top of the build.

Structured House Group, together with Graham, were pictured on the top of the 14-storey build during a topping out ceremony.

The £40million GDV project is a significant investment for the city and has brought more than 300 jobs and employed a number of local companies.

This is the first in a series of projects planned by Glasgow-based Structured House Group (SHG), as part of a £500m joint venture deal with a US company signed earlier this year.

The project team is joined by Director of NIXON and Structured House’s Chief Operating Officer, Richard McFadzean. Nixon Consultants is leading as employers’ agents, project managers and principal designers. 

Scotway House is located on the historic site of the former Meadowside Shipyard Office – which recorded the build of more than 30 anchor line ships in its day – and will house 399 students when it opens in September 2019.

Christine Young and Gillian Sloan of BOHO, the Glasgow-based property-management company set up by Structured House to run and manage its hotels, residential accommodation and student apartments, also attended to see the progress of its new student built.

Craig Inglis, CEO of sag, said: “We have reached a significant milestone on the build and we are proud our new accommodation will be a landmark along the Clyde.

Investment in Glasgow is one our key ambitions and to continue the transformation of this great city as a place people want to live, work, visit and invest. Our aspirations for the city are to build excellent developments, provide jobs, boost the local economy, and to see a sizeable amount of investment that supports the ambitions of this city. That is why we are excited to see the transformation of Scotway House that continues to grow week-by-week.”

CITY LIVING SET FOR HYDEPARK STREET

As the move to bring back city-centre living continues to grow, we have launched new proposals for residential accommodation in Hydepark Street, Glasgow. 

People Make Glasgow is the strapline and, with a rise in numbers living in the city in the last few years, more and more people are choosing to move back to our cities; choosing city-centre living to live, work and play.

Our proposed residential accommodation at Hydepark will attract and retain the next generation of city dwellers.

Located in a city with three universities, the University of Glasgow, Strathclyde University and Glasgow Caledonian University, we know there is a wealth of talent looking to stay and work in the city.

And with the rise in demand, so is the need for more living spaces.

Our proposals are to transform commercial office space into residential accommodation for the rental market. A new generation of city dwellers choosing to co-work and co-live.

This is not a new concept in many cities but one that Glasgow is yet to fully embrace. We all know it’s better and more economical to co-share driving and working, so why not living? Co-living is what we’ve all done our whole lives since we were born, so why not now. Our residences will have co-facilities to cut down on bills and allow you to do the best part, living.

Located next to the city’s Financial District, the River Clyde and the vibrant music scene at the SSE Hydro, the area is undergoing a revival and now is an excellent opportunity for city-centre living in our Hydepark location.

 

Housing our changemakers

Scotway House will be home to future leaders, doctors, nurses, engineers, scientists, builders; jobs that probably don’t even exist today.  

Our flagship accommodation is build on the historic Clydeside.

A wee bit of history 

Scotway House was the former office of Meadowside Shipyard and it is recorded that more than 30 anchor line ships were built here between 1876 and 1911.

Present Day 

Fast forward to 2018 and now new student accommodation and two new restaurants are coming out of the ground.

Graham, one of the industry leaders, is managing the construction and Glasgow-based Nixon Consultants has been appointed as employers agents, project managers and principal designers.

Not only that, we are determined to make our mark on the city and have established our own team of Glaswegians to run our accommodation to look after our students, mapping out a new history for Scotway House. Meet BOHO

Students are the life and soul of our great city and we will be delighted to home them in our high tech landmark site at Scotway. Follow our progress as we plot the journey of our new residences.

Gateway to Merchant City

We have submitted plans for residential accommodation at the gateway to Merchant City.

Revisiting a key regeneration opportunity, we are proposing residential living aimed at attracting people to live in the city centre, in line with Glasgow City Council strategy and policies.

Merchant Residential, at the corner of the High Street and George Street, will include a mix of office and retail space for start-ups and businesses as well as private-rental apartments.

The proposals have the potential to create more than 500 jobs and bring an investment of £40million to the local area.

To date, we have launched a proposal of Application Notice ahead of the formal pre-application process.

Our ambitions continue to be to turn a dilapidated site into an attractive mix of residential accommodation for residents choosing to rent close to the city amenities, shops, bars, restaurants, and transport links.

Merchant Residential will be managed by the company’s in-house property management-arm, BOHO.

We’ve launched a project website Merchant Residential to chart our journey.

£40M Investment

Scotway House is our flagship development in Glasgow. 

It’s where the past and present meet on Glasgow’s historic Harbour with views of the Riverside Museum.

Investment in Glasgow is one our key ambitions and to continue the transformation of this great city as a place people want to live, work, visit and invest.

Our aspirations for the city are to build excellent developments, provide jobs, boost the local economy, and to see a sizeable amount of investment that supports the ambitions of this city. That is why we are excited to see the transformation of Scotway House that continues to grow week by week.

We are investing £40m on the historic shipyard site of Scotway House which will cater for the region’s universities and further education institutions. It’s an exciting and ambitious project and it’s happening now.

Project website launched

Merchant Residential is our new proposal for the gateway at Merchant City.

Structured House Group took over responsibility for developing the site three years ago following a 15-year stalemate.

Since then, we have worked with planners at the Council on our offering to the city.

Our new proposal is for residential one and two-bedroom apartments and city centre living.

In June, we held a public consultation to find out from locals and interested parties what they thought of our plans and to listen to feedback.

Merchant Residential will be managed by our in-house management team BOHO. 

We’ve been working with our in-house management team BOHO and our new planning team ICENI projects to guide us and to gather public opinion to share with our team of architects at ADF Architecture.
