Cooper Cromar bring forward plans for ‘hybrid’ industrial estate
Cooper Cromar have been commissioned by Clyde Gateway to follow-up their design work on the proposed Red business centre by creating a ‘hybrid’ industrial estate next door.

Located west of Dalmarnock Cross in Glasgow the chosen site is an area of remediated land that once played host to a gas works and which will now house a combination of production and office space.

Phase one will see construction of an energy centre, factory and office component with a surveyu carried out of a surviving stone wall to Old Dalmarnock Road in order to ascertain its stability.

Documenting their chosen finish the architects observed: “A continuous robust brick base course continues around each unit. An upper floor consisting of full height composite cladding panels, and slot windows wraps around each unit. All buildings are of a similar two storey scale.”

Integrated public realm will knit the scheme in with neighbouring developments as well as The Clyde Gateway and Dunn Street.
A consistent palette of materials and colours will be employed across the site

Exemplar traffic light modelling.
What a miserable, traffic dominated environment...at least the image is honest.

There was a time, in the middle to distant past, when I thought CC were doing some really great stuff. This isn’t great stuff, even for the particular sectors involved.

The lights aren’t even honest. Have you ever passed by the clydegateway industrial estate on London road? I have never seen so many signs and traffic lights in my life. It’s almost a visitor attraction in its own right.

Depressing.

Many comments about the presence of traffic lights and not one comment about the excellent prospect of this long-term depressed area being infilled with modern business & industrial facilities. It's much needed. To those who commented on the shocking presence of traffic lights, how would you propose to manage traffic on a busy arterial route. How would pedestrians and cyclists cross such a road?

I think we need to look at this from the perspective of FA - this part of the city has been depressed for decades, desolate. At least it will look like part of a city when developed!
