Buchanan Wharf – A New City Centre Quarter
Drum Property Group has assembled and secured planning consent for a prime city centre development site in Glasgow: Buchanan Wharf.
Located on the banks of the iconic River Clyde, Buchanan Wharf will be a benchmark development in Scotland, a new and distinctive quarter for the city.
The site, a very short walk from Central Station, will become an engaging and contemporary destination, combining exceptional building design, high quality fit out and unrivalled connectivity credentials.
The development will provide up to 1,000,000 sq ft GIA of office accommodation, 350 residential units and a 150-bed hotel.
The ground floors and public realm areas will include cafe, restaurant, crèche, touch down areas and creative spaces which can be used by residents, employees and the wider community at different times of the day, ensuring an active and dynamic live/work environment.
Delivering a high-quality blend of services will be integral to the development. In addition to the high-class amenities and multi-use event areas, an integrated management service will be introduced by Drum, delivering building and site-wide facilities, event and travel management, to ensure residents services are tailored to their requirements, and occupier businesses run safely, sustainably and smoothly.
The aim is to provide a safe, clean, attractive and stimulating environment, in which residents enjoy a stimulating community, business can thrive, and colleagues can interact professionally, productively and socially.
This ambitious and dynamic place making is intended to resolve the poor connectivity and linkages between the city centre and the South side of the river and to activate over a quarter of a mile of river frontage in one of the UK’s most aspirational cities.
