What is the local area around the new build development like?

As we mentioned before, Laurieston Living is right in the middle of Glasgow City Centre, only a bridge crossing away from Glasgow Central Station – connecting you directly with the rest of Scotland.

However in this chic city living set up, it’s not the only thing you’ll be able to find on your doorstep and beyond. Laurieston is surrounded by a number of museum and gallery options, as well as local cafes and bars, and also not forgetting three iconic Scottish Music Venues – The 02 academy, The Barrowlands and The SEC Hydro. Whilst also offering a number of shopping options, from designer to vintage and high street brands.

It is fairly safe to say that you won’t be short of activities for yourself or your family if you do make the move. Whether it’s a day out to Kelvingrove Art Gallery, Glasgow Science Centre or Tennent’s Wellpark Brewery.

But what really makes Laurieston Living? The community within it. Since its origin the development has created a suburb feel despite its location and brings a real sense of peace and tranquility to the city – making it a great place to live.

Modern and spacious, the open plan living concept of these properties is perfectly suited to contemporary living and makes for the perfect first time buyer opportunity.

Urban Union homes are in prime locations for property investment, according to Colliers’

In their most recent report, commercial real estate firm Colliers’ have included Edinburgh and Glasgow within their top five places to invest in property within the UK. Which is great news for anyone with an Urban Union home, because that’s exactly where you can find all of our current housing developments.

Edinburgh came out on top in second place, meanwhile Glasgow ranked third, it’s first time within the top five!


Property prices and value on the rise in Glasgow and Edinburgh

Significant increases in average property price/value

Compared with 18 other cities in the UK, they were both favoured due to their strong house price growth, affordability and high EPC (energy efficiency) credentials – something which can assist you in being granted a green mortgage for your home.

Other factors which were considered included employment prospects, income inequality, business creation and broadband connectivity.

The benefit of this to you as a home owner? A prosperous city generates more interest and demand, which attracts further investment to the area meaning there will be more social spaces and eateries, as well as larger companies setting up HQ in the North.

And, if the time comes that you decide to move on, a much better valuation of your home is advertised on the property market.

But what does each city have to offer?


residential property to invest in within Edinburgh

Investing in property in Edinburgh

Named Best City in the World by the Time Out 2022 Index, Edinburgh boasts a diverse economy, large population, highly skilled workforce, high volume of leisure attractions, positive house price growth, low unemployment and good ESG credentials.

Great for homeowners, the city has the second-largest share of properties with an EPC rating of C and above from those reviewed – which is great for reducing energy bills. And, the city has also the third-largest green space compared with others in the report.

Compact enough to be explored on foot, Edinburgh offers a unique blend of world-leading heritage, arts and architecture, bringing together its history and new modern vibe.

And we most certainly can vouch for its popularity with the significant demand we have seen for our Pennywell Living development, of which there are only a limited number of new build one and two bedroom apartments now remaining.

Investing in property in Glasgow

Similar to Edinburgh, Glasgow has something on offer for everyone. From top retail destinations such as Buchanan Street and Argyll Arcade, to its iconic museums and art galleries or sights such as Glasgow Cathedral, you are never short of things to do!

Despite the average price for a flat in Glasgow increasing 35% between October 2017 and October 2022, buying and renting is much more affordable than in other larger UK cities.

Meaning you can not only enjoy everything the city has the offer, but at a much cheaper rate.

We currently have apartments and townhouses available within our Pollokshaws Living development, with prices starting at just £160,995.

Apartments for sale at Pollokshaws Living

With Glasgow’s Southside gaining a lot of attention in recent years it’s been inevitable that there will be more people searching for homes. However there is a negative side to this – increased house prices due to demand. That is when the Urban Union team saw the opportunity to develop affordable housing in nearby Pollokshaws, which allows homeowners to enjoy the locality but at a fraction of a cost.

Simply moving that short 5/ 10 minute distance from Shawland’s main stretch, Kilmarnock Road, can make all the difference.
