New Vision for Glasgow’s Pacific Quay Unveiled
21st June 2017
Public Exhibition Highlights Plans for More Homes, Offices, Restaurants and Attractions at Prime Waterfront Site.
Drum Property Group is unveiling a new vision for one of Glasgow’s most high profile waterfront sites at a public exhibition on Thursday (June 22).
Drum has been appointed by Scottish Enterprise to take forward the next redevelopment phase at Pacific Drive, Pacific Quay, at the heart of one of the city’s most exciting business and leisure destinations.
The public exhibition at The Hub, Pacific Quay, is part of the pre-planning application consultation process for the 7.5 acre site which forms a major part of the final stages of the wider Pacific Quay masterplan. Drum’s proposals include plans for high quality offices, homes restaurants and bars – together with a new micro-distillery with a visitor centre and restaurant.
Welcoming the start of the public consultation process, Graeme Bone, Group Managing Director of Drum said: “Pacific Quay is now Scotland's most important location for broadcasting, media, digital and the creative industries. This project represents a rare and exciting opportunity to create an outstanding development at a key strategic site for Glasgow, and one of Scotland’s most promising locations.
“Our ambition is to create a vibrant urban quarter that will be occupied twenty four hours a day, bringing life to what is currently an under used area. We want to realise the ambition of Scottish Enterprise to deliver a prosperous and attractive destination that will appeal to a wide range of occupiers - including homes, offices, restaurants and visitor attractions.”
Pacific Quay is on the doorstep of the SSE Hydro and Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC) as well as home to the BBC Scotland and STV headquarters.
Allan McQuade, Business Infrastructure Director at Scottish Enterprise, said: “The development of Pacific Quay has created a digital and creative hub in the heart of Glasgow, bringing new opportunities for economic growth to the city and more widely across Scotland. We look forward to receiving feedback on these proposals for the next significant phase of development at Pacific Quay.”
Graeme Bone added, “This is one of the key remaining waterfront sites to be developed in Glasgow, located directly adjacent to some of the city’s most iconic venues and visual landmarks. This is a very exciting and dynamic project to be involved in, and we look forward to working with other occupiers in the area to bring our plans for the site forward, in partnership with Scottish Enterprise.”
