Glasgow’s Argyle Street advances with ambitious office vision
October 8 2018
Promised plans for a significant new office development in Glasgow’s International Financial Services District have materialised in the form of a 283,000sq/ft development by Osborne & Co, part of Vanguard Real Estate.
The developer has pledged to invest £95m to deliver the Cooper Cromar designed scheme, which will provide grade A office space for up to 4,000 staff on the city’s Argyle Street.
Will Hean, development director (Scotland), Osborne and Co, said: “Following positive consultation with Glasgow City Council planners, Historic Environment Scotland and the local community, we are pleased to formally lodge our detailed planning application with which we aim to begin the process of a major transformation of Glasgow’s best undeveloped city site.
“We want to deliver an office building that will add value for the city of Glasgow: providing the business community with a quality environment to thrive, a quality product to attract global occupiers and a quality regeneration of a large swath of the IFSD.”
The chosen site is bounded by Robertson and York Street and includes a B-listed building which would be demolished to facilitate the plans. It neighbours a 187,000sq/ft office development anchored by HMRC which has already broken ground.
