Glasgow Airport & Clyde waterfront plans crystalize
July 11 2017
Delivered through the Glasgow City Deal £90.7m of waterfront work will include a Kettle Collective designed swing bridge connecting Renfrew and Yoker, opening up 83 hectares of vacant and derelict sites earmarked for 27,480sq/m of industrial space; 10,000sq/m of retail; 1,690 homes; 2,800sq/m of office space and 2 hectares of public space.
£39.1m of investment has also been lined up for the Glasgow Airport Investment Area which will establish a new business park offering in excess of 200,000sq/m of office space, 100,000sq/m of industrial space and 250 homes around another new bridge spanning the White Cart Water.
In a statement Renfrewshire Council wrote that the work would: “… regenerate the Clyde waterfront as an attractive riverside and urban area that supports existing communities and promotes new residential, industrial, commercial, business and leisure opportunities. With the construction of a new ‘opening’ bridge across the River Clyde, which will accommodate vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists, and the construction of the Renfrew North Development Road, the project will better link communities and businesses on both sides of the river.”
Should these applications prove successful it is hoped a start can be made on site for summer 2018 with completion programmed for summer 2020.
