Pacific Quay bulks up with a mixed-use concept
March 5 2020
Glasgow’s burgeoning Pacific Quay is set for further growth with the submission of conceptual plans for a major mixed-use development designed by Ryder.
Indicative plans call for a mixed residential, office and retail block fronting Pacific Drive, complementing delivery of a wider masterplan for the site which has already sparked proposals for new homes, a hotel and offices.
Exploratory proposals by Surplus Property Solutions the Z-plan build would bring a long-standing half-hectare gap site bordering Festival Park back into use while providing parking provision for 69 vehicles.
In a design statement, Ryder wrote: “By staggering the building form the scale is moderated and the potential created for an activated public realm whilst also providing the maximum amount of street frontage that would be desired by retailers. The orientation of the blocks maintain desired routes through as well as minimising northern exposure but maximising potential views out over the River Clyde.”
Detailed design, layout and materials specification would be provided in a subsequent full planning application.
