Glasgow’s Broomielaw displays heightened ambition
November 28 2019
Thomson Hunter Architects have once again been commissioned to devise a new approach for the prominent site with amended plans for a stepped glass tower of up to 25 storeys (shown in red) delivering 550,000sq/ft of accommodation.
Explaining their approach, the architects wrote: “The design concept is to introduce a significant and prestige mixed-use building into Glasgow’s streetscape incorporating grade A office space alongside a hotel, bars and restaurants.
“To allow some architectural scope for the detailed structure needed as part of a full planning proposal we are suggesting at this time that a suitable building on the site should comprise two heights, those being 80.5m and 94m.”
This will include the formation of new open space and a pedestrian through-route linking Washington and McAlpine Street, possibly in the form of an internal corridor, as well as vehicle access to a dual-level underground car park.
