Building work to create brand new affordable homes at the site of Glasgow’s former Victoria Infirmary hospital has begun!

Construction work on apartments at The Victoria development in Scotland is underway, with the multi-million pound project aiming for completion in 2022. 

The £29.3million first phase will see 135 much-needed affordable homes and 11 retail units built in the Langside area of Glasgow, while The Victoria’s second phase will create more than 200 homes for open market sale, including apartments in the restored Nightingale Pavilions. 

Phase one of The Victoria’s affordable properties include 32 for New Supply Shared Equity (NSSE) sale, opening up the development to residents who are unable to buy the 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments outright.

Peter Martin, Sanctuary Homes Group Director of Development, said it was great to see work on the homes beginning: “The Victoria is one of Scotland’s most eagerly-anticipated housing projects so it’s rewarding to see phase 1 underway.

These affordable homes will be highly sought after and bring new life to a historic site, sowing seeds for the south side’s newest community.”

Glasgow City Council contributed £15.7 million to increase the number of affordable housing options in the area and Council Leader Susan Aitken said it was a very important project, “Sanctuary is taking a really important site and retaining and reusing the best of its existing buildings to ensure it continues to be a focal point in the neighbourhood – through quality, affordable housing, places for work and new civic space. This is a huge project that should deliver real benefits to the local community and the wider city.”

Keys to apartments at The Victoria will be handed over from summer 2022.

The Victoria’s affordable properties also include 60 flats for mid-market rent and 43 for social rent which Sanctuary Scotland will manage.
