New affordable housing development makes its mark in Glasgow’s new East End

Baron’s Vale Street ViewA new affordable housing development in Glasgow’s new East End has been put firmly on the map with a giant Google map pin.

Cruden Homes’ multi-million pound Baron’s Vale development will comprise a total of 139 flats and 98 terraced homes and semi-detached homes.

The first phase of homes for private sale will see 30 two and three bedroom terraced and semi-detached properties released and available to reserve off plan in advance of the homes being built to meet high levels of market demand. Purchasers may also be able to take advantage of the Scottish Government-backed Help to Buy (Scotland) scheme which allows buyers to own a home with only a 5 per cent deposit.

Adjacent to the site, 30 two bedroom flats will be built on behalf of Glasgow Housing Association in the first phase, which will be made available for mid-market rent.

In recent years, Glasgow’s East End has seen huge levels of investment and regeneration which has transformed the area and changed the perception of it. Cruden had huge success as part of the City Legacy consortium in delivering the Athletes’ Village in the East End of Glasgow.

Cruden’s strong heritage in successful regeneration projects will also see further opportunities for apprenticeships, training and employment for the community as well as recruiting a number of local sub-contractors.

Sales and marketing director, Liz Mallon, said: “Cruden has a strong commitment to the demands of Glasgow’s buoyant housing market and we are pleased to make our announcement today with this striking Google map pin in what is fast becoming a vibrant area to live in and an altogether new East End. It’s just a few minutes’ walk to the recently opened Cuningar Loop Country Park, the new Community Centre with dentists, doctors and pharmacy and the Emirates Arena - making it an ideal location.

“Following our ongoing successes at both the Athletes’ Village and our popular King’s View site in the south side of the city, we have once again brought a high quality affordable private housing development to market. Baron’s Vale will pair affordability with quality and style.”
