Glasgow's 2014 success signifies potential for regeneration
November 14 2007Glasgow is to be the host city for the 2014 Commonwealth Games, signifying potential new opportunities for architects and regeneration in parts of the city.
The announcement was made in Sri Lanka last week, which saw Glasgow beat the Nigerian capital city Abuja by 47 votes to 24.
RMJM in Glasgow has worked with Glasgow City Council on the masterplan for the Athletes’ Village, part of which will be converted into a mixture of private and social housing for the East End of the City once the games are over.
UK Design Director of RMJM, Paul Stallan, said: “I am absolutely delighted at the announcement, and to have been part of the Commonwealth bid for Glasgow, one of the most exciting, design led cities in the world. The Games will contribute to the city’s future architectural legacy by regenerating the East End and bringing lasting benefit to the City.”
