Glasgow’s city centre offers residents and visitors an exciting mix of shopping, restaurants, night-life, theatres, galleries and much more. There will be lots of opportunities as people and businesses in the city centre take advantage of the ever-increasing pace of change in the way we live, shop, work and play. The city centre, which accounts for 34% of Glasgow’s output, will continue to provide opportunities to make the city centre a place where more people want to live.
Some of the opportunities are familiar, how to maximise vacant sites, empty shops and buildings, underused upper floors, underused plots of land, how to improve the look and feel of the city centre including traffic and emissions.

The City Centre is made up of nine distinct districts, and we will produce District Framework reports for each of them.

(Y)OUR PROJECT

Glasgow City Council have appointed a team led by MVRDV and Austin-Smith:Lord, supported by Space Syntax and a multidisciplinary team, to develop with stakeholders and local communities, Regeneration Frameworks for four districts within the City Centre.

This exciting opportunity will focus on districts of Broomielaw, Blythswood, St Enoch and Central as detailed in the Glasgow City Centre Strategy and Action Plan 2014-2019.

“The vision is to create a vibrant, playful, liveable City Centre”

(Y)OUR TIMELINE

We are currently working on a Baseline report for the 4 districts as a whole, but we will soon start to engage with local people, agencies and stakeholders to listen, learn and identify the best way to bring about sustainable regeneration to each of the individual districts.
