Representatives from Sunnyside Estate and Hillcrest were joined by the Scottish Government to mark the occasion of the handover of the first 12 affordable housing units.
These 12 homes are the first properties completed of a first phase of 35 affordable homes and will comprise eight houses and four cottage flats.
Work on the £4.5 million first phase was started in December 2019 in partnership with the Scottish Government, which contributed over £2.6m towards the project.
The homes offer a range of property types, including terraced houses, flats and unique flats developed within the hospital’s former Water Tower, complete with specially adapted wheelchair accessible properties. The homes offer one, two and three bedrooms, providing good quality housing for a range of household needs.
A second phase of homes is already underway, which will deliver an additional 59 homes and is set to be completed in early 2024.
