Outline master plan offers a tantalising glimpse of a future St Enoch Centre
April 11 2022
An outline master plan for the redevelopment of Glasgow's St Enoch Centre has been filed by site owners Sovereign Centros following an initial public consultation.
Preparing the ground for more detailed proposals to be drawn up the vision statement charts a course for the coming 20 years, setting out how the current mall could make way for a 2.5m sq/ft mixed-use development of up to 1,700 homes, offices, reduced retail and a four-star hotel.
Emphasising public space the plans call for a new civic square and performance space to be created, with only the historic Buck's Head Building and former Debenhams store remaining, the latter of which is being converted into offices.
Guy Beaumont, director at Sovereign Centros said: "A great deal of effort has been invested into the creation of this masterplan which reflects extensive engagement with key stakeholders across the city.
“We have been clear that there is still a lot of detail to be developed and this is the start of a long journey, however, we are confident what we have set out represents an excellent contribution to the city and will future proof the site.”
The project team comprises Leslie Jones Architecture; Oobe landscape; Iceni Projects; Woolgar Hunter and Atelier Ten.
