Clyde Gateway solicit opinion on Dalmarnock office block
Clyde Gateway is to host a series of community consultations over the coming days in a bid to obtain the views and opinions of residents and businesses on a proposal to build a 10,000sq/m office block opposite Dalmarnock Station.

The Station, which is itself to be redeveloped shortly ahead of the Commonwealth Games, will be a key access point to the Games site but is currently isolated.

Alison Brown, Project Manager at Clyde Gateway said “The imminent opening of the East End Regeneration Route and the completion of the £9m overhaul of Dalmarnock Station in late 2013 will transform how the area will look and it is our view it will provide the commercial market with an exciting new business location.

“We have worked up a proposal for a four-storey building that is almost 10,000 sq metres in size and would cost around £16m to build. It could work either as a stand-alone HQ office or be a location for a number of smaller and medium-sized operations with up to 600 staff in total. We are also proposing it contains much needed conference centre facilities that could be used not just by the occupants of this building but also the existing and future businesses from across the East End.”

The design team is being led by project managers Mace whilst Cooper Cromar is acting as architects.

Members of the design team and Clyde Gateway will be on hand at Clyde Gateway’s Bridgeton Cross HQ to to answer questions this Thursday between 11am and 8pm and on Friday between 11am and 3pm.

An additional presentation will be held in the Dalmarnock Centre, Lily Street, from 11am to 3pm.

Why is every building in the east end being "done" by Cooper Cromer, sounds a bit fishy?

The Accord centre for adults with learning disablities based in dalmarnock were promised a legacy from these games councillor jim coleman said to parents and carers that he was in talks with clyde gateway ..the people who go to the accord centre were told no legacy for learning disabilities from the 2014 games ..councillor george redmond who sits on the clyde gateway board has backstabbed the most vulnerable of his area ......shame on them
£16million and cant even give what was promised to his own people

How come i live in bridgeton 2 mins from this and know nothing about it ???? and how come all we ever hear from this council is we have no money, but it seams they keep on spending, be it through one agency or another???? The Accord center never asked for much, just a like for like that they had been promised for yrs! not just recently. Carers as old as in there 80's where made to go out at night , paying for taxi's to go see venues that where already known to be unsuitable just so the council could say carers where offered alternatives. . . bull shit!!! the council offered nothing, there where no choices, only led down a blind alley will what we give you will do you. Shame on the bloody lot of you, how you sleep at night when you have conned the carers, the old, the disabled and the people who should have been able to count on you i'll never know !!!

Strange the best thing they could illustrate about this scheme is the plant area on the roof? Looks like all the other cloned proposals.
