Bield shortlisted for top property award
Bield Housing & Care has been acknowledged by one of the country’s most prestigious property awards programmes.
The housing provider’s shared ownership development in Lenzie has been shortlisted as a finalist for Age Exclusive Development of the Year in the Scottish Home Awards 2019.
Developed in collaboration with Robertson Homes, The Meadows Apartments, which is a select development of 24 one and two-bedroom luxury apartments exclusively for those over the age of 50, will now go head-to-head with Fotheringham Property Developments’ Eden Manor, Stonehaven for the title.
Caryn Innes, head of development at Bield, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have been shortlisted for this year’s Scottish Home Awards for our Lenzie development.
“The Meadows has proved extremely popular, especially with local downsizers, thanks to the apartments’ contemporary design and leafy setting less than 15 minutes from Glasgow’s city centre.
“Last year our Fleming Place development in Edinburgh was nominated for Small Affordable Housing Development of The Year. To see another of our developments acknowledged this year is fantastic.
“Our team has been working extremely hard to create high quality housing and ownership options that provide older people with greater independence and support their needs as they age.
“We are looking forward to the event in June. Congratulations to everyone shortlisted and fingers crossed we can take home the award.”
Winners of the Scottish Home Awards 2019 will be announced on June 13 at a black tie ceremony at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in central Glasgow. BBC Scotland news anchor Catriona Shearer and comedian and broadcaster Des Clarke are set to host.
