Pacific Quay marina plans floated
January 12 2011
Designed by ZM Architecture and Baca Ltd the £30m marina would house water based shops, restaurants and even a roof top concert arena.
Floating homes would also be built in the basin, allowing residents to commute by boat and open up leisure opportunities for tourists.
David Beard, chief executive of Floating Concepts, said: “Despite having one of the most impressive river frontages in the UK, Glasgow does not have a prime waterfront destination. Our development will change this.”
Scottish Enterprise is backing the plans as part of its vision to expand the Pacific Quay media quarter.
An outline planning application has yet to be submitted but the developer hopes to commence construction by the middle of next year to complete the scheme by 2015.
