Closing date set for Orchard Wards site

Opportunity in Glasgow suited for residential use

GLASGOW23 February 2016 - A closing date has been set for a key development opportunity on the site of a former NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde facility.

Suited to residential development and supporting uses, the 6.25 acre site in Glasgow's Ruchill was once home to the Orchard Wards. The site is being marketed by JLL on behalf of NHSGGC with offers invited until the closing date of Thursday 3 March at 10am.

The opportunity neighbours the grounds of the former Ruchill Hospital, which is expected to be released to market in the future.

Nina Stobie, associate director, JLL, said: "We have already seen a number of enquiries from residential developers interested in the former Orchard Wards site.

"Situated on Panmure Street, the site is just 2.5 miles from the city centre and offers impressive views over Glasgow – making it an attractive proposition. We would encourage interested parties to get in touch ahead of the closing date in two weeks."

The former hospital buildings have now been demolished to allow the future developer a clear site.

The surrounding area is largely residential with a range of local amenities including cafes, bars, restaurants and leisure facilities. Hill Park Primary School is nearby, offering state-of-the-art education facilities.

There are strong rail links to Glasgow city centre via Possilpark, Parkhouse and Kelvinbridge while there is a regular bus service. The M8 motorway is also located close by.
