Demolition has begun in central Glasgow to make way for a new apartment complex offering residents exclusive use of a private sensory garden. 

A total of 65 one, two and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses will make up the new City Garden Apartments, which is being developed by Strathcarron Homes and marketed by Corum Property and Savills. The developer says the complex has been designed to create a “hidden oasis” within the city. 

“It’s great to finally get things underway and break ground,” said Campbell Docherty of Strathcarron Homes. “There has been a lot of excitement about this ambitious project and it goes to show that there is real appetite for people wanting modern, contemporary homes in the heart of Glasgow.”

All units come with access to a private roof terrace with views overlooking the city, which will also be home to a “bee hotel”. 

Chris Breckenridge of Corum added: “City Garden Apartments has a unique and contemporary design which offers something completely different to the people of Glasgow. 

“The professionally-designed gardens, spacious open-planned apartments and immediate access to the City Centre and West End have made this one of our most popular residential developments.”
