Opportunity

Stirling: Viewforth


Key Sectors: Commercial/office, Retail & leisure, Tourism and hospitality, Urban Residential

OVERVIEW

Stirling’s City Region Deal will build on existing key project initiatives designed to drive significant and sustainable economic growth. These include major investment in housing and transport; investment in new business space and significant additional investment in culture, heritage and tourism infrastructure. This landscape presents a raft of exciting opportunities for investment and development.

The opportunity includes three lots that are also available as one: B-listed Langarth House, B-listed Viewforth building and the land that was New Viewforth.

A prime development site in the heart of the city with superb views to the Wallace Monument and Stirling Castle – suitable for a range of development uses but is a particularly strong hotel opportunity.

Stirling Council offices occupy a large site on the east side of St Ninians Road at Viewforth. The original grounds of Viewforth, Springbank and Viewfield were purchased over the course of the 20th century by the Council and now form the Viewforth estate which falls within the King’s Park Conservation Area. The masterplan site extends to the east and south which is heavily wooded along Burghmuir Road.

The opportunity incudes three lots that are also available as one: B-listed Langgarth House, B-listed Viewforth building and the land that was New Viewforth.

The vision is to create a high quality development whilst ensuring that it is well integrated with the adjacent areas of Kings Park and Braehead. This should be achieved through a range of mixed uses, which are encouraged across the site, in addition to residential development, including a range of new homes suitable for all needs and budgets.

CURRENT STATUS

Masterplanning complete, including opportunities for a hotel, commercial, retail and residential development.

The new Viewforth Link Road is being progressed by the council with planning consent expected early 2019, with construction planned thereafter to enable development of the site.
