Tesco progress Glasgow Harbour plans

Tesco progress Glasgow Harbour plans
Supermarket stalwart Tesco has dusted off its plans for a new outlet at Glasgow Harbour after Manson Architects drew up revised designs for the grocery giant.

The scheme will see a swathe of brownfield riverfront land given over to the shed retailer to make way for a car park, roadworks and a riverside walkway complete with cyclepath and café.

Tesco will be hoping planners look favourably upon the South Street plans, considered preferable from a traffic management perspective to Partick.

The design supercedes a prior effort from Young & Gault which saw the supermarkets airspace occupied by 252 homes.

Playing a bit fast and loose with the word 'progress' here, aren't you?

This could be anywhere, and I don't just mean in the UK.

Of course the big T prefers this site to Partick, but that's no excuse for treating this prime riverside site like any old humdrum edge of town development.

For shame!

Same architects that are doing those awful collegelands buildings on the high street and duke street with the stuck on brickwork.

For sake, I do not understand why these kinds of buildings are still allowed. It is just an ordinary way to earn money. The last 50 years, British urbanism went down rapidly. Also Cinerama in Edinburgh is a total horror. Imagine if those facilities were sprawled around the city instead of everything in one anonym building that could stand everywhere on earth. I guess the British government has difficulty to understand strategies to make their cities more vibrant and sustainable in both social and economic ways. A complete tragedy for my British soul!
