Yorkhill Quay masterplan to fulfil River Clyde blue corridor vision
November 9 2020
Peel L&P has unveiled dramatic proposals to regenerate Yorkhill Quay at Stobcross Road, Glasgow Harbour with a residential-led masterplan to establish a new retail, leisure and tourism destination on the River Clyde.
Located between the Riverside Museum and Scottish Event Campus the project will develop a 4.64 hectares brownfield site, including establishing the north bank of the river as a fully permeable green corridor.
Design work led by Keppie will provide 1,100 homes in addition to a 200-bed hotel and 2,500sq/m of leisure venues.
Brian Lavalette, Peel L&P’s property director for Scotland, said: “We’re fully committed to the Clyde Mission and have been working closely with the Scottish Government and local council on our plans for the Glasgow Waters area which includes Yorkhill Quay and Castlebank Quay.
“Our vision is to create a sustainable environment for local people to enjoy. We will actively seek opportunities to supply our developments with low carbon, locally-generated energy and to use energy in a responsible way where possible. We welcome thoughts from the local community on our plans for Yorkhill Quay.”
A public consultation has been launched to inform early designs for the project ahead of an application for planning permission in principle expected early in 2021.
I agree regarding connecting to the city. On paper looks good but in reality, not so much.
Although the tantalising carrot to GCC of 1,100 council tax payers will ensure an easy passage through Planning.
To improve connectivity to the area they could consider reopening the overground Yorkhill Station that closed in 1921, although it is only 500 meters from the Partick Station I don't think they like having stations so close together which is a shame.
There is so much innovation in urban architecture and Glasgow deserves a slice!
