Greenock tastes sweet success

Greenock tastes sweet success
One of the largest public, private collaborations in regeneration was unveiled today on the Inverclyde waterfront.  The joint venture will see James Watt Dock in Greenock transformed by  £180m of investment.

At the heart of the bid will be a fully restored Sugar Warehouse.   

The 10 year plan will transform the 50 acre site with new business and residential premises.  In total some 45,000sq/ft of retail provision will be provided alongside 145,600sq/ft of commercial space and hundreds of homes will be built around a 400 berth marina.

The first phase will see infrastructure improvements including routing a road to the dock and various environmental improvements.

The project is being overseen by Riverside Inverclyde, a partnership between Inverclyde Council, Clydeport (now operated by Peel) and Scottish Enterprise.

The project is anticipated to complete by 2016.
