300 Glasgow Jobs To Be Created By Student Accommodation Plans

The historic Scotway House building has secured funding for redevelopment into student accommodation, a £40 million deal which will create 300 Glasgow jobs.

Scotway House, a 133 year old B-listed building which once housed the engineers’ drawing offices at Meadowside Shipyard, was gutted by fire two years ago. It has now been rescued from dereliction by investment from the Structured House Group, a property developer with offices in Glasgow, London and Manchester.

The deal will see the Group transform Scotway House, on Castlebank Street in the Riverside Museum area of Glasgow, into accommodation for 400 students. The plans also include space for two restaurants.

The development is set to complete next summer and will create hundreds of temporary jobs in the construction phase, along with permanent Glasgow positions once the project is finished.

The Royal Bank of Scotland’s Glasgow Real Estate Finance team is backing the deal and Kerr Potter, their relationship director, said: “Royal Bank of Scotland is delighted to be able to support Structured House Group in its redevelopment of Scotway House. The site is of significant historic importance to Glasgow and, sitting close to the Riverside Museum and Glasgow Harbour, plays a crucial role in the regeneration of the City’s riverbank area.”

“Glasgow has one of the largest student populations in Scotland and Structured House Group’s development will offer this community a modern and safe environment in which to live,” added Mr Potter.

Structured House Group’s CEO, Craig Inglis, said the development would create hundreds of jobs in Glasgow and would also contribute towards the area’s regeneration.

“We are delighted to have purchased the site of this building which has played such a significant role in Glasgow’s recent history. Scotway House was neglected for a long time and it’s pleasing the site can, once again, be put to productive use. Shipbuilding was the driver of Glasgow’s economic past and it’s fitting that this land will now house students, who are the key to the city’s future prosperity,” said Mr Inglis.

If you can’t wait for the future and you want the key to your own prosperity right here, right now - then apply for one of these cracking Glasgow student jobs and start earning in the next few days.
