Future-focused property developers

Kelvin Properties is an award-winning developer based in Glasgow’s West End founded by Stephen McKechnie in 1999. Originally specialising in buy-to-let residentials properties and focusing on property investment, Stephen became one of Scotland’s biggest private landlords.

The further acquisition and refurbishment of rental properties led Stephen towards property development, initially with a focus on conversion and refurbishment of existing buildings in premium areas. As the number of properties acquired, and scale of the business grew, this opened other avenues to explore.

Today, the company’s main focus is on developing a high-quality product across the residential sector. This aspect of the business continues to flourish, with a proven track-record of delivering developments of high quality, such as Candleriggs Court in the Merchant City and The Atrium in Broomhill.

Kelvin Properties has developed an excellent reputation for the delivery of prime Build to Rent accommodation such as the high-quality development, The Mitchell Apartments, in the City Centre.

We are now in an exciting period of growth for our business and aspire to develop many more much needed homes. We are passionate about the delivery of high quality developments in our home city of Glasgow and across Central Scotland.

Forward-thinking building for future living

By breathing new life into old sites, we’re supporting Scottish cities to thrive and flourish. Attracting talent, boosting local economies, creating social spaces, addressing the housing shortage. Our developments aim to achieve more than simply offering shelter. 

While enhancing the urban fabric has many merits, it can come at an ecological cost. So, in our upcoming developments, we have factored in everything from solar panels to ground source heat pumps and rain gardens to reduced car parking for improving and encouraging sustainability and biodiversity.

As well as the planet, we care deeply for the people who live in the communities we create.  

Ambitious restorations of old schools and other forgotten buildings, like The Atrium, Candleriggs Court and Napiershall Street, have earned us an enviable reputation. Not only as one of the country’s most trusted premium developers, but as urban regeneration specialists who are passionate about quality and the environment, too.
