Bellgrove meat market masterplan beefed up
May 31 2018
Glasgow City Council has earmarked City Deal cash to help make the city centre’s barren eastern fringe a more attractive place to be, with new infrastructure and public realm work planned in support of potential mixed-use development on the site of the former Bellgrove Meat Market.
Conceived to plug the gap between Dennistoun and the city centre the project will rejuvenate a swathe of vacant ground south of Duke Street while retaining surviving character buildings as part of a multi-phase masterplan.
Still at an early stage the scheme will include partial remediation of the land which will then be released to market as smaller serviced plots for phased development as hoped for investment floods in.
To speed this process along indicative plans call for a programme of tree planting to frame individual blocks with planted ‘rain gardens’ enhancing the biodiversity of the area.
High quality flush granite kerbs, paving and cycle tracks will also be introduced, along with pre-cast concrete benches.
