CONSTRUCTION of luxury family homes at the former Greenock Academy site is well underway.

Thirty properties are being built for CCG Homes at Madeira Street in Greenock’s West End.

How the development is expected to look

The development — marketed as The Scholars — will consist of 24 terraced villas and six terraced houses.

CCG Homes anticipates the first properties will be available for occupation at The Scholars in late autumn with full completion in early 2025.

How the development is expected to look

The 50-year-old Greenock Academy building was demolished in 2015. It closed in 2011 when the school merged with Gourock High to form Clydeview Academy in Gourock.

The building gained a second career and became familiar to millions of TV viewers UK-wide when BBC school drama series Waterloo Road used it as a set and production base but filming finished in August 2014.

Former pupils marked the building’s half century with an event in September 2014.

The upper part of the Greenock Academy site was developed as a pre-five centre in 2018.
