Savoy Centre facelift on the cards

This will include the installation of new windows and an external plant screen to obscure updated mechanical services with interior spaces refitted by C2 Concepts to offer a ‘funky and modern environment’ for occupants.
In their design statement CDA Architects said: “There are a number of recent developments within Glasgow City’s skyline that have been clad in a dark material which also have a positive visual impact upon the city centre.
“The facade improvements to protect and stain the concrete of the Savoy Centre’s tower building will dramatically improve the overall appearance of this damp forgotten concrete building while sitting comfortably within the context of the city centre.”

In 2009 previous owners PBN Property applied to reclad the tower as part of an ambitious skyscraper-led redevelopment of the block.
