Waterfront site to be sold for major regeneration

19 Jun 2018

A major regeneration project delivering over 900,000 square feet of Grade A office space and over 300 new homes has taken another step forward after Glasgow City Council approved the disposal of three plots in Tradeston - close to the Tradeston bridge, on the southern edge of the IFSD.

The project is expected to provide workspace for 7,000 employees, through significant inward investment schemes.

The site will be purchased by Drum Property Group for £1,317,500, with work expected to begin in late 2018, with completion in three years.

Councillor Kenny McLean, City Convener for Neighbourhoods, Housing and Public Realm, said: "The disposal of these plots will enable a development bringing a huge amount of Grade A office space, new homes and new jobs to the city centre, as well as a contribution to the public purse.  This project will mark a new chapter in the regeneration of both Tradeston and the waterfront."

The site offers huge potential as a location, with excellent connections such as the Tradeston pedestrian/cycle bridge linking the area to the IFSD and the wider city centre.
