180,000sq/ft office scheme to complete Glasgow city block
August 7 2015submitted plans for a 10 storey office block at 200 Renfield Street offering 180,000 sq/ft of grade A accommodation, completing the redevelopment of an entire city block in Glasgow.
Fronting the junction with Renfrew Street Broadway Two adopts a stepped profile to align with the lower frontage of the earlier Broadway One development, presenting a solid fenestration natural stone to the north and south and more transparent curtain wall glazing to the east.
In their design statement Cooper Cromar noted: “The overall building footprint has been developed to create a positive urban corner at the junction of Renfield Street and Renfrew Street. The building footprint has been designed on its eastern edge to step back from this key urban corner through the utilisation of a stepped profile to align with the frontage of Broadway One and to enhance visibility into the wider development site. The east façade will be more transparent in nature and this will be contrasted by a more solid fenestration to the south and north facades.”
The site, formerly occupied by STV’s studios, has already been cleared awaiting development.
