Today Glasgow’s city centre provides residents and visitors with an exciting mix of shopping, culture, leisure and entertainment experiences; but it also deals with constant economic competitiveness as well as daily challenges that impact on its regeneration.
Many challenges are familiar to us all, such as vacant sites, shops and buildings, under-utilised plot of land, changes in the retail patterns, safety concerns, traffic and emissions.
(Y)OUR CITY CENTRE DISTRICTS
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.
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.
