Clyde Gateway office proposal indicates building Games momentum
Gordon Murray Architects are seeking outline planning permission for the creation of approx 10,000sq/m of office space on a triangular brownfield site within the Bridgeton district of Glasgow.

Comprising a series of three storey pavilions oriented on a north/south axis and interspersed with landscaped courtyards the £11m scheme is designed to maximise views toward the river Clyde.

There will be no urban delineator with the adjacent Newhall or Main Streets with the prominent space instead given over to 150 surface car parking spaces and signage.

A spokesman for Zed Developments said:  “We are very happy with the submission and design lodged by GMA, we are working closely with Glasgow City Council and Clyde Gateway to deliver a successful development, we feel it will be well received by the market and prove attractive for its excellent location on the edge of the river and Glasgow Green.

“The transport links are good, with the upgrading planned for the rail station close by and the completion soon of the East End Regeneration Route and M74 extension improving this even further.”

It is hoped to have the development ready to act as a gateway marker to the upcoming 2014 Commonwealth Games.

You have an historic street junction and what do you do - set back the buildings and put a dead surface car park at the front! Surely could have addressed street as well as river.

Looks like all the energy has gone into the renderings:-0

Looks great! Seriously though, between this, ABC's effort on London Road AND the dross going up next to Celtic Park the East End is shaping up to be more of an eyesore than ever before - great legacy.

God! I don't expect much, if anything from ABC but this is supposed to be a decent practice?
