Mixed-use development is seen as a key driver in bringing forward new residential, office and leisure development within the city centre. Planned schemes will deliver future homes and workspace in the city centre and will change how we live, work and socialise.
Major projects underway include:
Buchanan Wharf (Tradeston)
The first phase of development is underway at Buchanan Wharf as Drum Property Group has agreed a deal with Barclays for a new headquarters campus (470,000 ft²). Barclays have the option to extend their campus by an additional 210,000 ft² in a second phase of development. The site also includes 324 residential units, a 150 bed hotel and retail/leisure.
Planning permission was granted for a mixed use quarter on the city’s waterfront for 300,000 ft² of office space, 400 new homes, a 150 bed hotel and food/retail units. The developer PLATFORM will deliver over 400 high quality purpose-built rental homes on the site which will form a crucial part of the Central Quay regeneration. This is one of Glasgow’s earliest build-to-rent projects.
Custom House Quay
The area represents the last major waterfront development opportunity within the ownership of Glasgow City Council. This major regeneration project offers significant investment opportunities across residential, hotel and leisure and commercial. The Council has committed significant capital investment with funds earmarked for delivery of engineering works to create development platforms and a re-design of the local road network.
University of Glasgow Masterplan
Following the acquisition of the former Western Infirmary hospital site, the University is expanding and transforming its campus as part of a £1 billion development plan into a globally recognized iconic place of learning and research, enhancing their position as a world-class leading institution. Work on the new Learning and Teaching hub is underway at a cost of £90 million with commercial research and office space to follow. This exciting commercial development comprises a true mixed-use prospect from hotel to residential, retail and leisure.
