Clyde Gateway to create more office space in Dalmarnock
VACANT land in the East End of Glasgow has been awarded to a property investor who plans to turn the area into a thriving business district.
At the last Contracts and Property Committee, held by the City Council, members agreed to hand over the Dunn Street/Poplin Street land to Clyde Gateway which intends to develop retail units and offices.
Clyde Gateway is Scotland’s largest and most ambitious regeneration scheme. It is a partnership between Glasgow City Council, South Lanarkshire Council and Scottish Enterprise, backed by direct funding and support from the Scottish Government.
Their task, over a 20-year period to 2028, is to lead the way in achieving unprecedented social, economic and physical change in our communities across an area of 840 hectares in East Glasgow and Rutherglen.
During Thursday’s meeting, councilors were told that the land transfer could help stimulate the economy in this area.
A council officer said: ‘The document refers to the off-market sale of three plots of land at Clyde Gateway. These are essentially grass verges and will allow Clyde Gateway to complete its development.
“Assembling the land will unlock the development which has planning permission for 62,000 square feet of commercial units. Hopefully we will see commercial activity in the area in the not too distant future. »
Plans for the site also include industrial units and employee parking.
Councilor-President Malcolm Balfour added: ‘It’s good and I hope it will also bring jobs to the area.’
Members unanimously agreed to give the document
