Keppie have submitted plans to develop 170,000sq/ft of Grade A
speculative office space on Glasgow's premier office address, St
Proposed by Abstract (Glasgow) Ltd the £60m scheme will comprise a ten storey tower designed to BREEAM 'Excellent' standards. It will also incorporate an internet shopping hub and café.
Keppie Director Richard MacDonald said: "We have created an elegant building envelope design that minimises heat gain and maximises daylight. Other features will include the repair of a vital part of Glasgow's urban fabric with the formation of a new pedestrian route linking St Vincent Street to the William Street hotel quarter."
Abstract's Development Director, Christopher McPherson, said: "St Vincent Plaza has been designed with a level of specification you rarely see outside London. It will have flexible, virtually column free floor plates of 17,000 sq. ft, a feature penthouse with terrace and some of the best views of the city.
"This will be the most efficient and environmentally friendly office accommodation in Glasgow and will be delivered into a market where available 'Grade A' supply has all but disappeared."
Subject to approval the scheme is scheduled to start on site in the spring and complete by the third quarter of 2013.
Bowmer and Kirkland has been appointed contractor.
