Forthside planning application submitted
July 10 2008
Stirling Development Agency, the joint venture between Valad Property Group and Stirling Council, has submitted its detailed planning application for the development of two office buildings located at the heart of Forthside, Stirling’s 40 acre waterfront regeneration site. The plan was designed by Edinburgh based RMJM architects.
The SDA proposals plan to provide 127,000 sq ft of commercial office accommodation situated on the edge of a new civic square, which will be linked to the city centre by a landmark pedestrian bridge, to be completed this autumn.
Tthe Grade A open plan office space is characterised by private courtyards and roof top terraces with unrivalled views of Stirling Castle, the Wallace Monument and the Ochil Hills.
“This is the first of a number of developments being undertaken by the SDA both within the city centre and surrounding areas, which will help to encourage inward investment in the region and facilitate economic growth,” said Andy Richardson, Development Director of Valad Property Group and Director of SDA.
Jones Lang LaSalle and Montagu Evans have already been appointed to secure pre-lets for the office space, with completion expected in Autumn 2010, to coincide with the completion of the nearby civic square and 4 star hotel.
In addition to the office development application, SDA has also submitted plans drawn up by RMJM for the redevelopment of the adjacent railway engine shed into a new bar and restaurant.
