Pacific Quay expansion continues with waterfront office bid
March 20 2019
Expresso Property and Holmes Miller Architects have brought forward plans for the latest addition to Glasgow’s Pacific Quay, a waterfront office block offering some 60.000sq/ft of accommodation.
Incorporating a lower ground floor providing 30 car parking spaces and cycle storage the property will be finished in a variety of fibre cement boards and metallic panels. Welded stainless steel mesh will be used to clad a circulation core.
Explaining their plans for open space Holmes Miller wrote: “The site is exposed to the prevailing west and north east winds. Hedging and raised planting areas have been introduced to assist in filtering winds to make it more comfortable to walk, sit and gather.
“Opportunities for outdoor seating have been incorporated at the south-west corner of the building and at the front entrance. Paved areas will be principally used to enhance the entrance area and form an outdoor seating terrace.”
Surrounded by new paving and planting the building will be branded as ‘G51’.
