Police Scotland headquarters completes
A £24m office block in Glasgow’s east end, future home of Police Scotland, has been unveiled by Clyde Gateway, the regeneration agencies largest single project to date.

The Cooper Cromar designed block stands on a brownfield site overlooking the Clyde in Dalmarnock, close to the Commonwealth games athletes’ village.

Clyde Gateway chief executive Ian Manson said: "The transformation of the east end communities is being done on a scale, at a level and over an extended timescale never seen before.  We have been working away quietly and effectively these past few years but now that the Commonwealth Games have come and gone it is our task to ensure the continued and sustainable delivery of the legacy promised to local people.

“The east end is unrecognisable from just a few years ago and is now awash with opportunity.  I am delighted that our efforts have already attracted an organisation with the stature of Police Scotland and I'm very confident they will be among an ever-increasing number who will make their home here in the fastest-changing area in the country.”

Around 1,100 police officers and support staff are set to move out from the forces’ city centre Pitt Street headquarters to the riverside campus in the New Year, completing the process by mid-2015.
