Construction News Image
North Lanarkshire Council has completed a new housing and retail development in Airdrie, as part of an ongoing regeneration scheme in the town centre.

The property in Buchanan Street was refurbished by the council and North Lanarkshire Properties (NLP) Ltd, with the successful relocation of one of the existing tenants - Wotherspoon Fishmongers Ltd.

Works have been carried out to the residential properties as well as refurbishment of the retail units on the ground floor.

Councillor Ian McNeil, Chair of North Lanarkshire Properties, said: "This is another successful joint project between the council and North Lanarkshire Properties, bringing vacant buildings within the town centre back into use.

"Earlier this year the partners transformed a property in Graham Street, and both projects have delivered high quality homes through the council's new supply programme alongside modern retail units for new and existing tenants."

Councillor McNeil and Council Leader Councillor Jim Logue visited the new development this week.

Councillor Logue said: "As well as providing first class accommodation for an existing local business, this project will create opportunities for new employment and services in the town centre.

"It is another example of the council's commitment to regenerating our town centres, supporting the local economy to recover from the covid pandemic and grow for the future."
