Homebuyers in Scotland can explore the neighbourhood around the upcoming NorthBridge development in Glasgow following investment from homebuilder Keepmoat Homes.

The builder said the VR tour will allow viewers to walk down the cherry blossom-lined streets, discover the cycle paths, and explore the green open spaces months before moving into a home of their own.

NorthBridge will offer 824 homes, plus brand-new shops, public spaces, landscaped promenades and parks, a community campus and a garden bridge connecting the regenerated area to the city centre.

Beth McNeil, regional managing director at Keepmoat Homes Scotland, said: “We are delighted with the launch of NorthBridge, and really excited to be able to use this innovative technology for the first time in Keepmoat’s history on what is our flagship development.

“NorthBridge is truly unique, and we see it as a fantastic example of how working with key partners including Scottish government and Glasgow City Council can regenerate a whole area of Glasgow, and provide new homes and new opportunities which will really benefit the city.”

The development is part of the £250m Sighthill Transformational Regeneration Area (TRA) – the biggest such scheme in the UK outside of London – and will feature a mix of exclusively designed, two, three, four and five-bedroom houses and one and two-bedroom apartments when it is completed.
