Great news! The Broomielaw District Regeneration Framework (DRF) which was developed by a multi-disciplinary team appointed by the Council and led by Glasgow-based architecture practice, Austin-Smith:Lord, working in collaboration with leading international architects and urbanists, MVRDV won a Masterplanning Award at last night’s Scottish Design Awards.
This is a really encouraging endorsement of the DRF which the Council approved early this year. As part of the City Centre Strategy, nine distinct Districts were identified and Broomielaw is the first of the four which Austin-Smith:Lord and MVRDV have developed. The St Enoch DRF is out for public consultation at the moment. The consultation closes on 6 September so if you haven’t already done so please make the time to do so. The remaining two DRFs, Central and Blythswood will come out for consultation later this year.
In the meantime, work continues on planning the delivery of the actions outlined in the Broomielaw DRF.
