Kadans Science Partner wants to develop part of a disused car park on Linthouse Road at Holmfauld Road.
Designed by Hawkins/Brown with HarrisonStevens and WSP, the 6,000sq/m development has been described as a new precision medicine health innovation hub delivered in partnership with the University of Glasgow and Scottish Enterprise.
A design statement added: “The ambition is to create a multi-tenanted flexible office and lab building within the Clyde Waterfront Innovation Campus, with research links to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.
“The proposal provides a platform for ambitious research and innovation. It also aims to bring employment opportunities plus community value to Govan.”
Subject to tenant demand a second phase could be built on part of this land with building services designed specifically to accommodate this.
