Regeneration plans going on display for city centre site

GLASWEGIANS are being invited to view updated development plans for a city centre location: Central Quay, by the River Clyde. 

The development site – being progressed by regeneration specialist, Summix Capital – comprises a vacant 4.43-acre site adjacent to an already existing office building of 80,000 sq ft at 2 Central Quay.

Located between the city centre and the west end at Anderston, the site is immediately adjacent to Finnieston, considered one of Glasgow’s fastest-growing neighbourhoods.

As part of the pre-planning application consultation process, a second statutory event will be held on Wednesday February 8, between 2pm and 7pm, at the 2 Central Quay office building. The office building is located at 89 Hydepark Street G3 8BW.

Says a media announcement, here, the event follows an initial consultation held in November.

Adds the announcement: “Summix Capital is seeking to deliver a development that includes private for-sale residential dwellings with family housing; affordable flexible office space; and purpose-built student accommodation, with the provision of commercial space on the ground floor. 

“The development site has lain derelict for a considerable period, and its regeneration heralds a significant investment in the city.

“The site, in conjunction with land to the south, benefits from planning permission in principle for a mixed-use development. This includes offices, residential, hotel, and associated ground floor commercial uses with access, parking, landscaping and associated works.

“The southern parcel of land has been sold separately to Platform_, who are currently constructing 498 build-to-rent apartments. It comprises four blocks, one of which, at 20 storeys, is one of Glasgow’s tallest buildings.”
