Project background

Glasgow is facing an acute shortage of grade A office accommodation, and vacancy rates are well below their 10 year average. Magenta at Clyde Gateway will be one of the UK’s most extensive office parks, extending to 11 hecatares (27 acres) on the banks of the River Clyde.

The park sits within the urban fabric of the City of Glasgow alongside the newly re-located 22 million GBP custom built Police Scotland Regional HQ helping to position this new district as an emerging part of the Glasgow business community.

About the project

The area is well served by a new rail station, upgraded national motorway network and is 15 minutes from Glasgow International Airport. It also offers a workforce of over 2 million within a one hour journey.

2014 Commonwealth Games Legacy investment in the local area has resulted in award winning public realm and new world class sports facilities at the Emirates Arena and Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome. Over 1.5 GBP billion has been invested in the immediate area to date resulting in 63,000 square metres (678,000 square feet) of award winning business space and over 2,500 new homes.

Magenta benefits from planning consent for up to 111,500 square metres (1.2 million square feet) of grade A office accommodation. The first phase of development has commenced on site with a 3,250 square metre (35,000 square feet) business incubator under construction and due for completion Spring 2018.

The site will benefit from a district heating and cooling network served from local energy centre provided by third party at no risk to investors. Incentives are available to occupiers, including Regional Selective Assistance plus a range of other local authority / public sector initiatives.

Magenta is wholly owned by Clyde Gateway, a partnership between Glasgow City Council, South Lanarkshire Council, and Scottish Enterprise.
