Unprecedented Levels of Interest in Unique City Centre Residence

Monday, 21 January 2013

Home buyers are registering in their hundreds for the opportunity to snap up a property at Buchanan Gardens, one of the country’s most exciting and exclusive new residential developments.

More than 800 people have already registered their interest in securing one of the 49 bespoke apartments, more than three months before the development officially launches.

The luxury one, two and three bedroom single and duplex apartments at Buchanan Gardens, which have been awarded eco-home status, have access to a unique sky garden, plus a residents’ gym and executive lounge.

Many of the apartments, being developed by Land Securities, will also have their own private terraces and balconies overlooking Scotland’s premier shopping street.

Estate agent Savills, which is selling the apartments, say interest is unprecedented and that several Scottish celebrities are amongst those who have already registered for further information.

Jennifer Goldie, head of residential development sales at Savills, said: “Never before have we seen this level of interest at such an early stage of development, and that is largely due to the fact Buchanan Gardens is such a unique proposition.

“We have had interest from as far afield as Canada and Australia and there are also a number of very well-known faces who have shown an interest in buying one of the properties.

“The incredible location, high specification and unique design features mean there is likely to be fierce competition to snap up the 49 apartments when they are launched in April with the opening of our opulent Showhome.”

Buchanan Gardens is part of Land Securities’ £70 million Buchanan Quarter residential and retail development, transforming a previously blighted site at the top of Glasgow’s iconic Buchanan Street.

In addition to 49 apartments, the development will encompass nine retail units. Confirmed retailers include US fashion giant Forever 21, which will launch its first Scottish store in the development, Gap, Paperchase, Watches of Switzerland, Fat Face, Skechers and Office.

Work on the development is well underway, with the launch of the apartments scheduled for April 2013 and residents expected to move in from Autumn 2013.

Jan Eldridge, residential marketing manager for Land Securities, said: “Buchanan Gardens is a very important development for Land Securities and our first residential development in Glasgow. We have worked hard to make this one of the country’s most innovative projects and all of the apartments are individually designed to a very high specification.

“We are extremely enthused by the incredible interest the development is attracting and are already excited about officially launching Buchanan Gardens in Spring 2013.”

To manage the large volumes of interest, potential purchasers are being invited to become VIP buyers by signing up to the Buchanan Gardens ‘Q Club’

All registered members will receive the latest information about the development’s progress and qualify for a range of exclusive benefits on purchase, including and interior design consultancy service and gift vouchers from selected designers, legal fees assistance from a selection of solicitors and invitations to exclusive  pre-launch information events.
