The development is rich in industrial architecture, with tram sheds, a chimney, gable and boundary walls – all of which are now being sensitively resorted.

Sales and marketing director for Places for People Scotland Allison Sutherland said: “We are very proud that The Engine Yard has been shortlisted for Best Urban Development outside of London category at the Inside Housing Awards 2021.

“We take great pride in achieving the highest standards, from the overall design of a development through to the individual finish of each property, and this shortlist really demonstrates the care and attention to detail that goes into the homes that we build.”
