Morgan Sindall has won a £24 million deal to build an office facility in Dalmarnock, Glasgow, as part of the Clyde Gateway regeneration project.
Vacant land on the banks of the River Clyde will be redeveloped into 120,000 sq ft of Grade ‘A’ office accommodation over a new five-storey building which is due to complete in October 2014.
The project will receive £16m of funding from the Scottish Government, and it is hoped that the office will act as a catalyst for further regeneration of land surrounding the site and help grow the National Business District within Clyde Gateway.
Other projects in the business district include a £15m investment to facilitate and support development on the site of the former Shawfield Industrial Estate, the £10 million refurbishment of Dalmarnock Station and the construction of a new pedestrian footbridge over the River Clyde linking Shawfield and Dalmarnock.
Morgan Sindall area director, Eddie Carr said: “The Clyde Gateway regeneration scheme is an ambitious project and key to the future prosperity of the east end of the city and neighbouring South Lanarkshire. There is a desire for high-quality and well-connected office space in the area and the new development, with its riverside location will no doubt attract further investment to the business district. Morgan Sindall has an excellent reputation for creating quality, sustainable office space and we’re delighted to be working on this high profile project.”
Neil McDonald, Chair of Clyde Gateway said: “It is the hope of everyone involved in Clyde Gateway that this will be the first of what will become a number of major office blocks flanking the banks of the Clyde in Glasgow and South Lanarkshire over the coming years as we continue to make great strides in the on-going physical, social and economic transformation of our communities.”
