Members of the Mactaggart & Mickel team recently attended a Civic Reception at Glasgow City Chambers to be part of a huge honour… the presentation of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise to the City Legacy consortium, in recognition of the success and the lasting legacy of the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games Athletes Village. The Village was one of the most significant new urban developments in the UK, housing 6,500 athletes for the two weeks of the games, and was subsequently transformed into 700 residential homes from one to four bedrooms - 400 of which were made available for rental through three Housing Associations and 300 of which were privately sold.
The development breathed new life into the Dalmarnock area of Glasgow, along with new world-class sporting facilities delivered for the Games themselves, and has enabled a new community to develop in a spectacular riverside neighbourhood of high specification, energy efficient homes.
The Award was presented by Lord Provost Eva Bolander to members of City Legacy, which includes Mactaggart & Mickel Group, Cruden Homes, CCG, WH Malcolm and Glasgow City Council. We’re very proud to be a founding partner of this consortium, and to have made this contribution to the future legacy of the city.
