Public offered a final say on emerging Buchanan Galleries masterplan
January 12 2023
Landsec has set the stage for a third round of consultations concerning the redevelopment of the Buchanan Galleries shopping mall, the final such opportunity to do so.
Envisaged as a new city centre neighbourhood the plans focus on extending Sauchiehall Street eastward through the Concert Hall steps, extrapolating the city grid to land north of Queen Street Station. This will maximise shop frontages from just 262m as existing to 655m on a network of new streets as the introverted mall is turned inside out.
The owners will launch their last consultation on 26 January with a series of events, exhibitions and workshops taking place through to 7 February.
Nick Davis, head of retail development at Landsec commented: “This is the final opportunity to share feedback and we are really keen for as many people as possible to input thoughts and ideas. Our vision is to enhance Glasgow’s historic grid layout, introducing vibrant new streets with a mixture of places to work, shop, live, eat and socialise in the heart of the city.”
The design team is led by Foster + Partners in collaboration with Michael Laird Architects, Atelier Ten, Arup and New Practice.
Sauchiehall Street could punch through the mass of the current mall, creating an opportunity for a more accessible Concert Hall entrance
