Keppie bag Central Quay masterplan
April 8 2010
Developer Goodman is pressing ahead with the next phase of expansion on the key site, which could potentially accommodate up to 500,000sq/ft of additional office space, a hotel and “a prominent corporate HQ on the Clyde waterfront.”
This will focus initially on refining the design and development concept in anticipation of a masterplan being submitted “at some point later this year.”
It supercedes a prior masterplan by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson with Keppie seeking to “Create a more urban feel to the scheme, with a greater density and a more varied spacial relationship between proposed buildings,” according to practice director Richard MacDonald.
Central to Keppie’s vision is a ‘hybrid podium’, thought to mean a landscaped podium deck with undercroft parking. This would allow for a walkway to serve as artery through the deep plan site, akin to Maxim.
