DESIGNS for a new £100 million office development in Glasgow city centre have been unveiled by M&G Real Estate.
The 12-floor building in Cadogan Street — to be known as The Grid — will provide 277,500 sq ft of Grade A space.
The Grid will be built on the site of the former Corunna House in Glasgow’s Central Business District.
How The Grid will look at the corner of Cadogan Street and Blythswood Street
Planning consent was granted in 2017, and permission has now been given for some amendments to the original scheme including the removal of a car ramp from Wellington Lane and the introduction of a dedicated street-level entrance ramp for cyclists to the left of the main entrance.
There will also be electric car charging ports in the basement, on-site cycle storage and spa-style showers and changing rooms and laundry.
There will be a highly-visible entrance on the corner of Cadogan Street and West Campbell Street and enhanced public realm is planned with new widened paving, trees, seating, and a drop-off point.
The top three floors will have panoramic views from south-facing terraces, with views across the city and the hills beyond.
On the tenth floor there will be a private double-height sky garden. The roof will have The Loft, a communal business lounge and garden.
William Badger, asset manager at M&G Real Estate, said: “Ways of working are changing fast, and so must the buildings we create. Workspace is one of the key contributors to staff wellbeing, and we are very excited to present our vision to the market. We believe we have created something that is truly special and unique in the Glasgow market.
“With a lack of new Grade A space in the city’s office market, as well as in nearby Edinburgh, we are confident that The Grid will attract strong interest.”
Property advisors JLL and Knight Frank have been appointed as letting agents.
Demolition of the existing building is planned for later this year, with completion of the new structure possible by late 2021.
