Glasgow planners give all-clear to Central Quay masterplan
January 22 2018
Central Quay is being brought forward by Harbert Management Corporation and XLB Property together with Keppie and LDA Design, bringing a long-term brownfield site back into productive use.
Tony Lawson of XLB said: “Central Quay is a significant site and its regeneration is long overdue. It will now provide a major new mixed-use quarter to the western edge of Glasgow City Centre close to the SSE Hydro, Scottish Exhibition Centre and major transport hubs.
“The masterplan is designed around a vibrant high-quality environment, providing new homes and offices plus supporting amenities. Harbert Management Corporation (Europe) LLC and XLB Property are in discussions with a major PRS developer to ‘pump prime’ the waterfront site. The first phase of development is expected to commence towards the end of 2018.”
The development has been spurred by a deficit of speculative office development coming forward in the city through to 2021.

I'd imagine the resi blocks would need to be much taller to support any shops in the area....
