Buchanan Quarter site clearance progresses
August 9 2011
Branded as the Buchanan Quarter the scheme sits on a prime pitch on Buchanan Street, Britain’s second biggest shopping thoroughfare outside Oxford Street, and includes a pedestrian connection through to a secondary frontage on West Nile Street.
Designed by BDP the scheme will sport a blonde sandstone finish with zinc cladding, rising to a six storey “sail” detail which flairs out, slightly, between the second and fourth floors at the intersection of Bath and Buchanan Street.
Three retailers have already signed up to the scheme including Forever 21, Paperchase and Gap and Land Securities have pencilled in the £70m scheme for a Spring 2013 opening.
