castlemilk PO

Castlemilk is a suburb of Glasgow located 6.5 miles south of the city centre. The 0.91 acre level site occupies a prominent corner on the south side of Dougrie Drive within the heart of Castlemilk and sits adjacent to the Braes Shopping Arcade. The immediate vicinity is characterised by attractive, recently constructed social housing.

The former Royal Mail depot is now vacant, with its services transferred to another nearby delivery office. The 7,554 sq ft premises comprise a collection of inter-connected buildings on a single, tarmac site with landscaped areas with a secure yard and car parking to the rear.

The building is part single storey, part two storey with a basement plant room. In addition to the main ground floor sorting office and public counter area, the upper floor comprises a variety of office/store and staff welfare accommodation, including a first aid room and separate male and female toilet facilities.

Fraser Smith, commercial surveyor in Shepherd’s Glasgow office, said: “The local area has seen the development of several social housing schemes. The site may be suitable for a residential development subject to receiving appropriate consents. As such, much interest has been generated in this potential redevelopment opportunity.”

Offers are invited for the property. Interested parties should contact the sole selling agent on 0141 331 2807.
