Central Quay marketing commences
Business Park developer Goodman have commenced marketing of the second phase of Glasgow’s Central Quay, a “waterfront business park” in the heart of Glasgow city centre.

Some 540,000sq/ft of office space is proposed to be built on brownfield land to the immediate west of the Kingston bridge, arranged over seven office pavilions. These will be built alongside Warroch Street, predominantly of four storeys in scale with a six storey ‘HQ’ building located alongside the Clyde.

All will be constructed above a landscaped podium deck with undercroft parking.

To accommodate a range of occupier requirements the possibility for an alternative vision incorporating just five buildings - including an expanded 250,000sq/ft HQ building and opportunity for a hotel on the site of the former Bilsland’s Bakery, is also on the cards.

Phase two will be produced as a design and build or turnkey basis subject to heads of terms being agreed with tenants.

Keppie Design are acting as masterplan architects.

"Out of town space, in the city centre" is reason enough for hoping it never sees the light of day.

Looks more like predominantly five storeys, with 6 storey HQ at opposite end from the Clyde. Either way, it does make me wonder what the point of all that planning policy and guidance on design, placemaking and mixed uses is for. The buildings may be 4-6 storeys high, but they are effectively monoculture pavilions grouped on a large site.
We're not very good at city building, are we?
