The Benefits of an Urban Union Home

When you buy an Urban Union home you aren’t just buying a property. You’ll be buying into a lifestyle, establishing your place in a vibrant community, and you’ll be buying a well-built future-proofed home.

We work with architects who have an ongoing commitment to creating high quality, crafted architecture, public realm and landscape that is embedded and connected to its local and wider context. We ensure that our regeneration projects benefit the local landscape and community, so our sites feature green spaces and a mix of accommodation, with potential for commercial opportunities and retail outlets.

Energy efficiency

A newly built home is much more energy efficient than older properties making them a lot cheaper to run. With inflation and utilities bills on the rise and the price cap on energy set to go up over the coming months, this is high on buyers’ agendas.

Following COP26 last year, climate change is at the forefront of our minds. Home energy efficiency is a huge part of how we need to deal with this collectively but the good news is that new homes are built with energy efficiency in mind and are constructed to a higher standard than in previous years. They must adhere to minimum standards when it comes to energy efficiency, leading to lower household carbon footprints and lower energy bills. Urban Union homes are built with materials that are highly energy efficient including the windows, insulation, doors and appliances.

At Pollokshaws Living, our high quality one and two bedroom apartments that are currently available for sale are equipped with all the features for a great quality of life and enable you to keep your energy bills to a minimum. Unlike with the purchase of an existing property, windows and doors won’t need to be replaced for many years and you can rest assured that the property is incredibly well insulated. Your new home will have a building warranty, which will safeguard you against large repair payments which are typical of older properties.

High quality fixtures and fittings

In addition, you’ll be able to have a say in the interiors, fixtures and fittings when making an early bird reservation.

At Laurieston Living, Pollokshaws Living and Pennwyell Living, our high quality one, two, three, four and five-bedroom properties are located within a thriving community and benefit from our trademark features of high ceilings, long windows and great storage. What’s more, every home comes equipped with all the features necessary for modern life, including well-finished, fully integrated kitchens, plenty of storage space and airy living areas, suitable for a wide range of buyers. But what are the other benefits of a newly built home?

Your new home will also have the most up-to-date standards on safety and security incorporated. Materials must be fire-resistant with detectors fitted for you. In addition, the overall designs are also built with fire safety and evacuation in mind. Security is often standard too, giving both peace of mind as well as helping to bring down home, building and contents insurance fees.

Community engagement

Community engagement is at the heart of our plans and our aim is to build relationships with the local communities to ensure the homes we build are to the benefit of the people of the cities in which we have developments.

Various jobs are created during the construction phase of the project, with Urban Union committed to providing employment opportunities for local people. We have successfully delivered hundreds of homes at our developments and are putting that award-winning experience to good use as we support ongoing regeneration.
