New offices proposed for key IFSD site

25 Jun 2020

A detailed planning application to create 200,000sq/ft of office space in the IFSD has been submitted by Soller Group.

Carrick Square will stand between Brown Street and Carrick Street, connecting both with a new pedestrian link and a landscaped plaza.  Sheer glass walls will rise through 14 storeys to a large roof terrace, offering panoramic views across the River Clyde.

Nick Treadaway, founder and CEO of Soller Group, said: "Whilst development across the world is currently paused, we are very optimistic that resilient, forward-thinking businesses will thrive again and continue to look for top-class space in one of the UK's most vibrant cities. The need for ambitious world-class office space will be paramount in the drive to bring new investment and occupiers to Glasgow."

Neil Haining, director of Mosiac Architecture + Design, added: "Our proposed design for Carrick Square responds to Soller Group's vision for world-class business space to act as a catalyst in the regeneration of the Broomielaw area, whilst respecting the heritage and affection that surrounds the Clydeside. Key to our proposal is a new carefully-considered public plaza joining Brown and Carrick Streets with the new main entrance and providing much needed public green space to the area."
