26 Jun 2007

Glasgow's new Digital Media Quarter is being transformed with the creation of Medius, a state-of-the-art new media development at Pacific Quay.

Medius, 2,863sqm (30,818 sq ft) of dynamic, flexible office space in Glasgow's new Digital Media Quarter, is one of the flagship buildings at Pacific Quay and has been created as part of the Clyde Waterfront regeneration initiative.

Medius, anticipated for completion by the end of the year, will be a tremendous boost to Scotland's digital media industries providing a new generation of waterfront office accommodation.  The development combines distinctive architectural design with high quality specification, helping to transform this waterfront site into the Clydeside's most flexible media space.

Scottish Enterprise Glasgow, in the enterprise agency's key coordinating role for the Clydeside redevelopment, is targeting the Pacific Quay site to digital media content developers and providers; broadcasters and publishers; communication technologies companies; research and development institutions; and games companies.

Colum Halforty, SE Glasgow's director of competitive infrastructure, said:

"Medius is an exciting development for Pacific Quay, this state-of-the-art facility is set to boost Scotland's Digital Media industry, attracting top companies to the Clydeside.  Medius will help to ensure that Glasgow is ideally placed to take advantage of the projected growth of the digital media sector."

Donny McKinnon Managing Director of Mackenzie Partnership, said:

"Designed from the inside out with the occupier in mind at all times; uninterrupted open-plan floor plates of up to 940sq m (10,118 sq ft) ensuring maximum flexibility for space planning and sub-division. Specified to the highest standards throughout to ensure the space is capable of housing the most modern media users."
