In addition to the key projects identified in the Framework, the District will also benefit from the Avenues project which is part of City Deal. This means that Sauchiehall Street to Charing Cross as well as Renfrew Street to Killermont Street will be redeveloped.

The proposals have been developed to maximise the benefit of the Districts existing assets such as:-

The arts and cultural institutions, including The Glasgow School of Art, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, The Theatre Royal Glasgow, The Glasgow Film Theatre and the Centre for Contemporary Arts, The 0² ABC, the Pavilion Theatre, Cineworld and the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.

The west side of Sauchiehall Street has capitalised on its multifunctional night time economy and has evolved into a social entertainment destination.

The west side of Sauchiehall Street also acts as a pivotal connector to Kelvingrove Art Gallery and the Mitchell Library.

The developments will improve the connectivity of this District with the rest of the City Centre and the City generally which will benefit residents as well as visitors and businesses.

Given the high number of entertainment and art venues within walking distance to each other, there are unique opportunities to improve the pedestrian experience to ensure the District capitalises on these functional assets, particularly at night. This will reduce the negative impacts that constant vehicle movement can have.
