In January, the first phase of 242 properties was launched with almost all selling out in record time.

Developer City Legacy now plans to market a further 52 houses with the final six making up a terrace of showhomes.

The consortium of Glasgow firms Mactaggart & Mickel, CCG, Cruden and WH Malcolm say the success of the Commonwealth Games has sparked "incredible" interest in the Athletes' Village properties.

As a result, it has been decided to put them on the open market ahead of schedule.

They are two, three and four bedroom terraced homes and townhouses with prices starting from about £123,000, £137.000 and £175,000.

House types are named the Thistle, Yellow Elder, Silver Fern and Hibiscus after the national flowers of some of the teams competing at the Games.

Joanne Casey, sales and marketing director of Mactaggart & Mickel urged anyone interested in living in the £150million development to register their interest now.

She said: "It has been an incredible journey so far. Everyone involved in the design and the delivery of this fantastic development has been overwhelmed by the interest in the Village both before and during the Commonwealth Games.

"Almost all of the 242 homes released for sale in the first phase sold within a few weeks and unique website visits and registrations on the sales website spiked dramatically during the Games period.

"That is why we have taken the decision to release the final 52 homes early.

"We anticipate interest in this final sales release will be extremely high and would urge anyone who is tempted by the thought of being part of the Commonwealth games legacy by living in this unique, award winning and environmentally friendly development, which is situation in a stunning riverside location, to visit the website or telephone us now."

Interested buyers can register for updates on these new homes at the Village by visiting or by phoning 0800 0321 100.

Telephone lines will be open from 11am until 4pm on Thursday, August 28.
