Tesco goes to town with Partick store
April 12 2010
A series of public consultations have already been held for the scheme, which has been significantly downscaled from initial plans that would have heralded a student village on the riverfront site.
Instead the grocery giant has adopted a back to basics approach for the 65,000sq/ft “eco” store which has now been shorn of all residential add on’s but will retain a landscaped walkway along the Kelvin.
Controversy still surrounds the proposal however with campaigners fearful of the likely impact on traffic.
Some locals are also concerned about a saturation of supermarkets in the area spelling trouble for small and independent retailers.
