110 Queen Street plans approved
February 8 2012
Demolition work will now commence on a 1964 office block on the prominent Merchant City junction
Designed by Cooper Cromar on behalf of BAM Properties the development comprises a nine storey glass façade around an inverted curve and roof terraces to take advantage of city centre vistas.
It will also incorporate retail/leisure units along the Ingram Street frontage and basement parking for 56 vehicles.
Bam Properties Development Director, Michael Smart, said: “110 Queen Street has been a bit of a blot on the landscape for a number of years and it is a great opportunity for us to create a vibrant new building which links the City Centre to the Merchant City and enhances the Glasgow Style Mile.
“Not only will the building look terrific but it will offer a highly sustainable, desirable office environment. Despite not undertaking a marketing campaign we have already had enquiries for both retail and office accommodation.”
The building will not be completed before 2014 at the earliest.
Urban Realm spoke to project architect Simon Walsh in May of last year.
