This affordable housing development by Partick Housing Association creates a total of 87 flats. The development  includes 43 flats for social rent, 22 flats for mid rent and 22 shared equity flats.

The award winning development was constructed for Partick Housing Association by McTaggart Construction Ltd. The project was given £7 million of funding support from the Scottish Government through Glasgow City Council.

Centurion Way is the first mid market rent development in Glasgow to be funded under Glasgow City Council's development programme. This new housing product is designed to provide affordable rented housing for households who cannot afford to buy or rent privately and who are unlikely to qualify for social rented housing. Research by Glasgow City Council found that that around 10% of Glasgow households could be in this position.

Partick Housing Association is in a prime location to deliver mid market rent as Partick is an area of high housing demand, with a low number of social rented homes, a thriving but expensive private rented sector, and an economically active but low income community. In the West End private rents for a two bedroom flat are around £700 per month. The association is offering its mid market rent homes from £473 per month for a one-bedroom flat to £575 for a three-bedroom flat.

A play park has been constructed for children who live in the flats and the development also contains a combined heat and power system (CHP). The CHP generates electricity on site and uses the heat produced as a by-product of the generation process to reduce demand on the communal gas boilers. This technology helps to reduce fuel poverty and CO2 emissions, resulting in energy cost savings compared to conventional systems.



Current status:

Planning consent issued January 2011. The flats are now complete.

Centurion Way has been announced as winner of an International Property Award (UK) for best multi-unit architecture.
