Work begins on Arnold Clark site in Armadale
Work has begun this week at Southdale (formerly Armadale Station Development), in Armadale, West Lothian to prepare a vacant 5 acre site on Station Road for the arrival of Arnold Clark.
Europe's largest independently-owned, family-run car company will relocate from the Main Street to a larger 20,000 sq ft site at Southdale, allowing it to expand its operations. This will include a new showroom; hardstanding display area for more 400 cars; a service department; car valet building with car wash facility and parking spaces.
The work on-site will largely involve remediation work, preparing the site for development, with Arnold Clark expected to begin work on-site in June.
Southdale is one of Scotland’s largest regeneration projects with an estimated value of £200m and includes residential and commercial uses, as well as a proposed new primary school. Once complete it is estimate that it will employ 4,500 people.
The relocation of the Arnold Clark is part of the second phase of the scheme which will comprise 384 homes; neighbourhood shops; flats; a community building, offices, a new primary school and commercial units.
Eddie Hawthorne, Managing Director of Arnold Clark commented:
“I am really looking forward to being part of what could be one of the most beneficial and revolutionary regeneration projects in West Lothian. Arnold Clark’s move to Station Road will bring a huge amount of potential for the Armadale branch; not only will there be extensive amounts of space to expand the offerings available to customers, we think that with the regeneration project will bring a host of new faces and businesses to the area, and we are looking forward to building up a relationship with everybody involved.”
The first phase of housing for the site by Taylor Wimpey and Bellway comprises 191 houses with an ASDA supermarket which opened in September 2012.
