Osborne+Co has teamed up with Co Tyrone construction firm McAleer & Rushe for another major waterside project, this time in Glasgow.

Osborne+Co and MRP, the investment arm of the Cookstown-based builder, have announced their joint bid to erect 700 dwellings on Glasgow’s Lancefield Quay.

The early plans provide 400 build-to-rent homes and 300 private properties on the site along the River Clyde, close to the landmark SEC Armadillo and Hydro buildings.

The developers said they intend to submit a planning application to Glasgow City Council in the spring, but a consultation process will go live on Thursday.

Osborne+Co is one of the key investors in the massive Belfast Waterside project, which could see hundreds of apartments built on the 16-acre site of the former Sirocco Works along the River Lagan.

Headed by Dundalk native Jim Osborne, the developer said up to 8,000 jobs could eventually be based at the site in a series of office buildings.

Belfast City Council granted outline planning permission in early July 2020.

Commenting on Osborne+Co’s latest waterfront project in Glasgow, Will Hean from the firm said: “Our vision for Lancefield Quay is to deliver a sustainable community with an emphasis on high-quality housing with well-planned, inclusive spaces.

“Our proposals are early, but we have developed them focusing on regeneration and providing important housing. We look forward to showing local people how we feel we can enhance the area and capture their views.

“Osborne+Co has already demonstrated its commitment to Glasgow through our development on Argyle Street and our Met Tower project, which recently achieved planning consent.”

Meanwhile, McAleer & Rushe have been awarded the contract to build the £47m City Square House in Leeds.

In what has been reported as the largest private sector pre-let deal in Leeds in the last 20 years, the 12-storey city centre office building will house law firm DLA Piper.

Designed by Todd Architects, construction is due to get underway in May, with completion targeted for the fourth quarter of 2023.
