St Vincent Plaza landscape strategy detailed
LDA Design have detailed their landscape strategy for an under construction office block in the heart of Glasgow city centre, which will create a new terraced pedestrian space connecting St Vincent Street to William Street.

St Vincent Plaza is being developed by Abstract to designs by Keppie, offering 170,000sq/ft alongside an area of new public realm incorporating Caithness stone, granite aggregate paving and integral feature lighting.

Raised planters will be situated on the series of terraces, housing a range of native trees and shrubs to enhance the ecology of the area. Lighting is the primary consideration however with uplighters illuminating the M8 underpass and feature signage helping to encourage pedestrian movements, work which LDA director Kirstin Taylor believes will ‘create a unique public realm that can be enjoyed by everyone.’

An exhibition showcasing how the development will look upon completion in spring 2015 is being held at the nearby Hilton Hotel for the next month.
