LUXURY Apartments Proposed At Former South Side School

CCG Homes has submitted a planning application to transform the former Calderwood Primary School, Newlands, into a luxury housing development.

Comprising 20 apartments, including two three-bedroom penthouses, the proposals are for conversion and retention of the Victorian Calderwood Lodge and replacement of the 1960s school extension with a new-build flatted block on a similar but smaller footprint.

The stone walls on the front, rear and side boundaries of the property in Calderwood Road will be kept and repaired and the same gated access points will be used. The mature trees along the street boundary will also be retained in keeping with the surrounding residential area.

Private gardens to the front and rear of the site will have additional soft landscaping incorporated replacing the  playground areas whilst the development will also have private parking.

CCG Homes managing director Calum Murray said: “On the back of our successful 156-home development Riverford Gardens in Pollokshaws, CCG Homes is delighted to bring forward proposals for this prime development in Newlands.

“Working with architects Stallan Brand, Calderwood Lodge presents an exciting opportunity to create something special with the conversion of the Victorian building and the new-build construction of apartments which will be completed with a stunning stone facade.

“This year is set to be one of the busiest on record for CCG Homes and we are incredibly excited for what the future holds as we continue to bring quality, energy-efficient homes to the private housing sector in Scotland.”

Subject to planning, CCG Homes aim to be on-site later this year.
