Alexandra Park

Flatted development of 36no. mid market rent flats including 4no. wheelchair adaptable dwellings

The proposals at Kennyhill Square directly overlook the historic Alexandra Park, Dennistoun and benefits from further outstanding east/west aspects over the yachting pond and St. Rollox bowling greens. The project sees the formation of 36no. desirable, yet highly affordable flats for mid-market rent, including 4no. wheelchair adaptable flats to the ground floor.

The brief and site location demanded an extremely sustainable development. All properties have living areas located to maximise solar gain, with much of the glazing to the north elevation restricted to the exposed communal closes. Cycle use and storage is at the heart of development with 125% provision. Car parking is reduced to encourage active lifestyles, with all parking spaces being future-proofed for Electric Vehicle charging. Extensive photovoltaics to the roof, grey water collection & on site recycling centres complete an exciting and sustainable vision for this leafy corner of Dennistoun.
