Planning approval secured for Glasgow commercial scheme

September 4, 2019 by NSC in Weekly News
Property developer Osborne+Co has been given the go-ahead by Glasgow City Council to deliver a new commercial scheme at Argyle Street in the city’s International Financial Services District (IFSD).

Derelict for more than 20 years, the site will become what is said to be one of the most significant office buildings to be built in Glasgow over the last 10 years.

Designed by Glasgow-based architects Cooper Cromar, the overall scheme will provide approximately 25,000m² of Grade A office space over 14-storeys.

Commenting on the planning approval, Will Hean, Development Director, Scotland for Osborne+Co, said: “We would like to thank Glasgow City Council and their planning team for their constructive input, insights and valuable guidance throughout this process.

“Working collaboratively at all levels with the Council over the past 18 months towards this final consent has involved sound judgement and bold vision combined. We are delighted to now be in a position to progress this impressive office scheme onwards towards the construction phase.”

Conor Osborne, CEO, Osborne+Co, said: “Glasgow is a key regional business hub recognised most notably for financial services, life sciences and renewable energy. We are confident that this ambitious development will help Glasgow to fulfil its full potential by attracting global occupiers looking to invest and expand their UK presence and benefit from the skilled local workforce Glasgow has to offer.”
