Welcome to New Homes in Glasgow
Glasgow’s fortune was originally founded on international commerce, shipbuilding and textiles. The River Clyde was at the very heart of its success, and in recent years the Clyde Waterfront Regeneration project has been one of the focal points for new homes, offices, shops, and leisure and cultural facilities, created over a 12-mile stretch from Dumbarton, on the west coast, to the city centre. The many individual developments that make up this ambitious urban renewal scheme have created arguably the most exciting area for new-build homes in Glasgow. The city now boasts an eye-catching mix of old and new in its architecture.
Another important period in the city’s history was the creation of several new towns on its periphery during the 1950s and 1960s – among them East Kilbride, Livingston and Irvine – that drew many Glaswegians away from the overcrowded central quarters to the more spacious suburbs. Nowadays there is still a fine choice of new property developments in Glasgow’s provincial towns.
Glasgow and its outlying areas are served by a very comprehensive public transport system including trains, buses, ferries, buses and a subway underground railway) loop, as well as an excellent road network. There are also two airports close to Glasgow.
Aside from the bricks and mortar, buyers looking at new home developments in the Glasgow area may also consider other important factors such as healthcare and schooling before finally choosing where they’ll buy their new home.
