Glasgow’s West Campbell Street shapes up as new office corridor
January 12 2017Cadogan Street, raising a dated 1980s structure with inefficient floorplates to make way for 275,000 sq/ft of net grade A floorspace.
A design team led by Cooper Cromar propose to replace Corunna House with a 12-storey block bounded by Home, West Campbell and Blythswood Street’s, with a tenth-floor setback offering opportunity for outdoor terraces.
In considering the exterior the architects have striven for a ‘restrained, timeless yet contemporary’ aesthetic with a clearly defined double height reception space.
In seeking approval the architects wrote: “The redevelopment of 29-39 Cadogan Street offers a rare opportunity to regenerate this micro location within the core Central Business District and will act as a catalyst for major regeneration in the area. The scale of development is also critically important, as it provides the opportunity to secure a large-scale occupier, inward investor or potentially public sector occupier.”
Options are being explored with Glasgow City Council for the removal of on-street parking on both sides of Cadogan Street to accommodate new planting and public realm, basement access will be provided off Holm Street.
Faced in masonry, composite and metallic cladding panels the scheme will sit over the road from Cooper Cromar’s planned New Exchange, restoring the Victorian building line through to Atlantic Square.
