Glasgow City Centre, Glasgow Green


Glasgow City Council has announced plans for a new waterfront quarter around the existing St Enoch Square.  The site will also take in the southern edge of the City Centre and will include the prominent areas along the north and south banks of the river, between Glasgow and Victoria Bridges.

The mixed use quarter will act as a catalyst for appropriate redevelopment and environmental improvements along both banks of the river.  The aim is to create a vibrant waterfront quarter incorporating a new City Centre destination and quality public spaces, enabled through appropriate land and development opportunities, with public realm improvements, greening, lighting, public art and a pedestrian priority traffic flow.

The redevelopment of the area and its reconnection to St Enoch's Square, Argyle Street and Buchanan Street is complementary to the ongoing and proposed regeneration within the City Centre.

In early 2013 public realm and landscaping works began on Custom House Quay.  These works included reducing the height of walls, resurfacing works for cyclists and pedestrians using the bridge.  Works going on towards the Saltmarket include planting trees, fixing railings to make them safer for children and resurfacing the Cycle Path.

Current status:

The public realm works at Custom House Quay were completed in Summer 2013.
