New Commercial Properties for Let!

The Water Row Company, part of the Govan Housing Group, are delighted to announce that included within the exciting Water Row development in Govan, we have 6 brand new commercial properties for let.

The Water Row development in Govan is a landmark £21 million housing development comprising of 92 new mid-market rent residential homes and 6 commercial units.

The new homes and commercial units are within touching distance of the new Govan-Partick Bridge whose main span was floated up the Clyde earlier this month.

Many of the properties – which have been under construction since 2021 – will offer spectacular views over the Clyde to the Riverside Museum and beyond and have already become a new Govan landmark.

The commercial units available sit in varying positions underneath the residential blocks within the development. The handover of the commercial properties from the building contractor is expected around springtime of 2024 with the units being handed over as a ‘shell’.

However, we are pleased to announce that we have the potential to secure funding which would allow for the fit out of the commercial units. Due to feedback received from the local community, we intend on utilising funding to incorporate a commercial kitchen into unit with the idea of this becoming a restaurant, which is opened during the day as well as in the evening.

The below details a summary of the properties available:
