PUBLIC WELCOMED TO DUNDEE EVENT

We are holding our public consultation in Discovery Point, Dundee, to hear from locals, residents and businesses on our vision for Site 17 in the city, today March 5.

Working with Dundee-architects Nicoll Russell Studios and Dundee City Council, the proposals are for a mixed-use residential development including rented accommodation, a bar and restaurant, public and support spaces as well as commercial units at the brownfield site which sits to the east of the Tay Bridge.

The company is working its proposals in line with the city’s Waterfront Masterplan – a £1billion transformation of the area spanning 30 years.

Today is an opportunity for the public to hear from the architects and the project team and to give their views on the vision for the site.

Brian Smith, Operations Director at Structured House Group, welcomed public and business interest in the proposals for site 17.

He said: “Our proposal for Site 17 is to work in close partnership with the city and in-line with the Dundee Waterfront masterplan.

“We are delighted to be working with local company Nicoll Russell Studios to bring our investment to the city and to share with the public our vision for the site. We are eager to hear from locals, businesses and interested stakeholders and to share our early plans with them. We are building flats for the rental market with a mix of commercial spaces and a proposed restaurant. Our vision is to not only to build but to operate Site 17 through our in-house property-management team BOHO.

“It is an exciting time for Structured House Group to working in the city and we hope we can share our ambitions with Dundonians at the event today.”

Site 17 is located next to the Waterfront and close to the prestigious V&A Museum of Design and easily accessible to major cycling routes.

Director of Nicoll Russell Studios said: “We are working with Structured House Group on its plans for the redevelopment of the site. We look forward to presenting our designs and ambitions at the public consultation. It is an exciting time to be working to rejuvenate our city and our designs will work to complement the city’s sense of place and identity. We look forward to welcoming residents and businesses to our event.”

The event is on from 11am to 7.30pm at the Discovery Point.

 

DUNDEE WATERFRONT

We’re holding a public consultation in Discovery Point, Dundee on March 5 to hear the views of locals, residents and businesses on our vision for site 17 in the city.

We are working with Dundee architects Nicoll Russell Studios and Dundee City Council in line with its City Waterfront Masterplan – which is a £1billion transformation of the area in a project spanning 30 years.

It’s early days but we have submitted a proposal of application to the Council this week.

The public consultation will be an opportunity to feed into our proposals for the brownfield site which sits to the east of the Tay Bridge.

Located next to the Waterfront, site 17 is located closely to the prestigious V&A Museum of Design and easily accessible to major cycling routes.

Director of Nicoll Russell Studios said: “We are working with Structured House Group on its plans for the redevelopment of the site. We look forward to presenting our designs and ambitions at the public consultation. It is an exciting time to be working to rejuvenate our city and our designs will work to complement the city’s sense of place and identity. We look forward to welcoming residents and businesses to our event.”

PLANS FOR INVESTMENT IN DUNDEE

Plans to convert the former Robertson’s Furniture Store on Barrack Street revealed.

We announced in the Dundee Evening Telegraph our plans to convert the former furniture store, which has lain empty for many years, into our first BOHO hotel in the UK.

The Hotel will see the creation of a 215 bed hotel with plans to retain and restore the 1930’s arc deco façade.

Our chief executive Craig Inglis revealed that our ties with the city go from strength to strength with our first hotel expected to open in 2020 with plans in place to develop further in the city .

“We are progressing with our plans to invest £20m on the site of the former Robertson’s furniture store on Barrack Street since receiving planning permission early this year. Dundee is a thriving City and with the opening of the V&A we expect our new hotel and restaurant to be a welcome addition to what the City has to offer.”

“We have been working with experts to preserve the existing art deco facade and retain the character of the building to bring this development site back to Dundee and to Dundonians. The next stage of our development will be the appointment of a contractor which will bring construction jobs to the city with an expected start date of early next year.”

“In terms of jobs, we are looking at 12 internal staff, while the restaurant will be 18-24 staff. That doesn’t include local suppliers and service providers.”

“There are already other BOHO developments but this will be the first BOHO hotel in the UK.”

BOHO also manage Scotway House – a new 399 bed student accommodation development in Glasgow’s West End – located close to the University of Glasgow and due to open in 2019.

BOHO Dundee is set to open in 2020.

EDINBURGH PROPOSALS UNVEILED

Home of the Scottish Parliament, the Castle, Greyfriars Bobby and now our first-joint proposal, Structured House Group will showcase refreshed proposals, together with Scotmid Co-operative, at two Public Information Days next week.  

The two days of public information will show the community and interested stakeholders new and refreshed proposals for a state-of-the-art store and student accommodation at 236 Gorgie Road next week. 

Partnering with Scotmid, we hope to bring a new and refreshing development to the local area and will be exhibiting our plans on Tuesday 6th and Wednesday 7th of November at the Gorgie Dalry Stenhouse Church of Scotland from 2-7pm.

Working with Edinburgh City Council and following comments from locals and the Edinburgh Urban Design team, the team has worked extensively on revisions to the plans which we are keen to showcase to the public.

Our joint submission will see the community-convenience store transformed, which Scotmid will continue run, and our student apartments, management by our in-house operation team BOHO.

“This is a major development for Scotmid and we are proud to forge a partnership with a co-operative that has strong values and a history of supporting its local communities. Bringing local amenities together with student accommodation will further strengthen our offering for students in the area and bring a significant boost to the local economy.” Craig Inglis | CEO Structured House Group

We have teamed up with Edinburgh’s Manson Architects + Planners which has run number of large-scale projects and has been nominated for previous Property Awards as well as being listed as an Urban Realm Top 100.

The apartments will include internal amenity in the form of lounge/kitchen/dining areas for each cluster flat and common rooms and 100% of cycle storage will be included for each student. On site management of the upper floors will be incorporated into the secure entrance of the build. 

From inception to completion, we look after our buildings and our people and will be managing the build through our in-house management team, BOHO.

The proposed development, subject to planning, should to be completed by 2020 with the store back in operation and servicing the local community before the end of 2019.

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.

 

Tearing down the walls

When people talk about co-living and co-working what do they mean? It’s described as a  relatively new phenomenon but when you think about it, people have been co-living their whole lives.

When you are born you co-live with your parents, when you go to university, you co-live with your flatmates, and when you meet someone, again, you’re co-living. It’s something we all do but don’t think about.

 

 

The concept of sharing is not new as people have always shared facilities such as gardens and amenities in residential developments – but what is new is the drive to create better communities for people, socially and economically.

Rapid urbanisation, ageing populations and non-nuclear families means that there is no one size fits all approach anymore. We are all living in different ways with many choosing to move back into cities for jobs, convenience and city living.

Whether you are old or young, the idea of having all the luxuries like a gym, cinema, restaurant, library and bar under the same roof, included in the price of your rent, is a dream for many.

By turning convention on its head and believing it can be done differently, we are creating new spaces to do just this.

We have a transient population choosing to move between cities for work, life and the experience; those who really do value the journey over the destination.

We also know we have an isolation problem with others wanting a community feel rather than being alone. So because we know this, we have taken great care to design with people in mind and to create communities through our fabulous and flamboyant brand, BOHO.

Let us be a part of your story.

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. 

Located on the historic Clydeside before the build.

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.

Be bold; be ambitious

Where we are, where we are going, and what we want to achieve, at Structured House, we think about creation and building of new communities.

Be that in new spaces or forgotten locations, we want to get to know our neighbours and invest in people, places and in our cities.

There’s a new wave of thinking that values flexibility and choice over traditional ways of living and working. It’s with one another, with our neighbours, with strangers, with communities creating new community-living and co-living spaces.

Our millennials now demand flexibility moving from city-to-city, job-to-job and our empty nesters want their capital to travel, where we’re seeing a move back into our cities for ease of travel and services. Families are no longer nuclear. There’s no one size fits all.

We don’t just pay lip service to this. We are at the forefront of creating this. Like pioneers, we know that we all need to look at other angles and see what can be achieved and make the change happen.

We see the potential in urban spaces, in unloved and neglected sites, where town and cities can bring back residential living into our cities. We’re ambitious and daring and we are doing it.

And it doesn’t stop there. We not only purchase, design, obtain planning and build, we choose to look after the places we own through the launch of our very own in-house management company, BOHO.

It means we can build for the long-term, get to know our neighbours, look after our properties and our residents. We’re making spaces in places where people want to live, work,  socialising and grow.

Choosing BOHO is a way of life.
