A DEVELOPER has brought forward proposals for a major office building on a site near the Broomielaw in Glasgow.
Phase two of Carrick Square would be on a third of a city block on land bounded by Brown Street, Crimea Street and Carrick Street.
It would be behind the 14-storey phase one building for which developer Soller Group has secured planning permission, with construction due to start on that in the first half of 2022.
A number of commercial buildings and Glasgow City Mission’s headquarters would be cleared as part of the phase two development.
A design document included with the phase two planning application states: “The proposed new 17-storey office building comprises 13 floors of open plan office space with an upper level roof terrace.
“At ground floor level, there is a generous double-height entrance lobby with break-out spaces, informal meeting areas and co-working stations.”
It continues: “This proposed development of this site presents an exciting opportunity to address the increasing demand for Grade A commercial office accommodation within Glasgow city centre.
“Taking cognizance of the recently launched master plan for urban renewal within the ‘Broomielaw Quarter’ area of the city, a new public plaza linking Brown Street and Carrick Street will be introduced.
“This will provide a defined entrance area and route to the building and also contribute to the rising quality of the local streetscape.”
The application, for planning permission in principle, is pending consideration by Glasgow City planners.
