ROOF-Top Running Track Included In Planned Glasgow City Centre 12-Storey Office

A HUGE office development being proposed for Glasgow City Centre includes a running track on the roof.

HFD Property Group Ltd is seeking permission for a 305,000-square feet, 12-storey office building at 177 Bothwell Street.

The site has been vacant for more than 10 years following the demolition of the former Holiday Inn hotel.

If the development is approved, office workers will be able to exercise on the roof of the premises.

A document submitted with the application states: “Roof level will accommodate building services, contained within a perimeter screen, sat back from the roof edge. Out with this zone exists the opportunity to create recreational amenity space for building users, with a running track exploiting the panoramic views from this level, with planters providing biodiversity and coloured paving and pebbles providing a low maintenance but vibrant external environment.”

Shower and changing facilities would be provided.

The application is now pending assessment by city council planners.
