Kilmarnock picks up the pace with Halo urban park
October 3 2016
Led by the Klin Group and backed by Diageo the scheme will occupy the site of the drinks giants’ former bottling plant and will now be put to the UK and Scottish governments for additional support before it can proceed.
Marie Macklin, chair of Klin Group, said: “Kilmarnock deserves the very best for this iconic site and that is what we are setting out to deliver. We listened carefully to what the people of the town had to say and the HALO Project will provide a fitting and sustainable legacy for the Hill Street site that will last for generations of Kilmarnock residents to come.”
Located next door to a new campus for Kilmarnock College, due to open shortly, the scheme will include a business hub, manufacturing centre, exhibition space, cultural facilities and a water sports centre. These will be grouped around a landscaped plaza alongside shops, cafes, 175 homes for social rent and 3,000sq/m of commercial office space.
Keppie have been appointed project architect for the scheme.
