Clyde Gateway to showcase Glasgow on worldwide property stage
Regeneration agency Clyde Gateway hopes to follow up on the widespread interest created by the 2014 Commonwealth Games by launching a search for new investors at MIPIM’s UK property show in London later this week.
The event, the first forum of its kind for professionals looking to close deals across all major sectors of the UK property market, will showcase leasing and investment opportunities within the office, retail, industrial, residential healthcare and sports property sectors. It will be held at Olympia, London, from Wednesday 15 – Friday 17 October.
Following the £24m Police Scotland move to Riverside East, Clyde Gateway is launching its search for a joint venture partner to take forward Scotland’s largest commercial planning project at Shawfield.
Offering unrivalled development opportunity and commercial prospects, Shawfield is the largest commercial and industrial planning consent in Scotland and the 11th largest in the UK.
With a total site area of 65 hectares, Clyde Gateway is now bringing forward Phase 1 comprising 11 hectares. £20m is being invested in the site infrastructure and landscaping and a new bridge provides direct access to Dalmarnock Station. Its access to road and rail routes, as well as its close proximity to Glasgow city centre and Glasgow airport make it the ideal business location.
Shawfield offers the scope to deliver a large scale modern business environment. It will be primarily Class 4 business space but with ancillary mixed use to support the needs of occupiers, staff and the local population. Supporting uses will include shops, cafés, gym, business centre and hotel. The integrated approach to infrastructure, surface water, green space, and accessibility and energy efficient buildings makes Shawfield a highly sustainable business location.
Plots range from 0.2 ha to 2.5 ha accommodating buildings from 20,000 sq. ft. (GIA) to 300,000 sq. ft. (GIA) and can be subdivided and amalgamated to suit occupiers’ requirements.
Opportunities are also available for investors to become partners in Dalmarnock Cross and Dalmarnock Riverside.
Dalmarnock Cross is a major new development opportunity including hotel, commercial, retail and residential, all within minutes of Glasgow City Centre, the 700 new homes in the first phase of the Athletes’ Village and world-class sporting venues associated with the Commonwealth Games.
Dalmarnock Riverside is Clyde Gateway’s flagship residential opportunity with development capacity for 450 – 800 homes.
Ian Manson, chief executive of Clyde Gateway, said: “This has been a phenomenal year for Clyde Gateway. We have been overwhelmed with the interest that the Games generated and with the quality and numbers of businesses that have already made the decision to make Clyde Gateway their new home.
“It’s clear that the location, the value for money and of course the quality of build available are second to none. That’s why these new developments are not to be missed opportunities for potential investors. This is their chance to get involved with us and play a significant part of something which is already making huge economic and lifestyle differences to the lives of people in and around Glasgow.
“The Shawfield development, in particular, is a one of a kind. It’s the largest planning consent in Scotland and the 11th largest in the UK – what an opportunity that presents.”
