Pacific Quay 2 planning extension sought
Archial are seeking a third five year extension for their plans to build a new office pavilion at Pacific Quay - having originally lodged a planning application for the scheme way back in 2000 from the practice formerly known as the Parr Partnership.

Since then Parr have been snapped up by Archial and Archial have themselves been taken over by Ingenium but the plot itself remains undeveloped.

The latest extension, having previously renewed their permission back in 2006, will extend consent through to 2016.

If eventually built the £12m business park style development would provide 64,000sq/ft of open plan office space on a prized spot fronting the river Clyde, sandwiched between the BBC and STV.

Pacific Quay is being developed by a partnership including Miller, Grosvenor and CTP Ltd.
A lengthy gestation has seen the plot languish for 11 years and counting

If the design was any good, maybe it would have been build by now. I'm not holding the BBC headquarters up as any kind of exemplar, but at least it has a bit of ambition about it.

That's right - it the design's fault, not the client, bottom falling out of the office market or the global recession that's to blame.
