High rise exhibition

An open door welcome at Broomhill, Greenock

Boomhill

5 September 2017

A fifteenth floor flat in a multi-storey in the Broomhill area of Greenock is, for the third time, hosting an exhibition by acclaimed cult photography project, The Dark Side o’ The Clyde as part of Inverclyde’s Doors Open Day events.

The exhibitions, which have attracted upwards of 200 visitors in previous years, have captured the £26m regeneration of the area and, for the first time, this year, will feature colour photography using infra-red lenses.

In a change of venue, the exhibition is moving to a top floor flat at 156 Prospecthill Court. Demand for properties in the refurbished Whinhill Court has been such that we are letting the final properties in the block to new customers.

Since November 2016, over 90 properties have been rented mainly to new customers in the Broomhill area, reflecting its growing popularity as a community that is building on its already strong foundations.

As well as the innovative photography exhibition, the Doors Open Day event gives visitors the opportunity to see for themselves the quality of the refurbished properties and offers a rare chance to see the spectacular views across the River Clyde.

Jenny Speck, a River Clyde Homes Board member who lives in Broomhill, said: “Broomhill is changing. It’s one of the biggest regeneration projects in Scotland at the moment and the community is going from strength-to-strength. Doors Open Day is a brilliant initiative that takes place across Scotland giving people a chance to ‘see through the keyhole’ of buildings not normally open to the public. Our hope is that people will come and see for themselves the quality of the Broomhill flats and enjoy the views. Aside from the exclusive exhibition of photography, and the chance to win a print, there is an opportunity for visitors to see the plans for the area’s regeneration; a project that is now in its final year.”

The exclusive Dark Side o’ The Clyde exhibition can be seen on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 September, 11am – 4pm at 156 Prospecthill Court, Greenock.
