Glasgow City Council has given the go-ahead to expand city centre office campus, Skypark, by 330,000 sq ft.

The development, which is a joint venture between Paradigm Real Estate Managers, Kenmore Property Group and Halifax Bank of Scotland, has won planning for two new hotels as well as office buildings totaling 330,000 sq ft.

4,000 people already work at Skypark, and 02 is its major occupier.

Skypark’s Development Manager Michael Dillon said: ‘In our opinion, the longer-term view has to be kept in focus. Skypark is a landmark within this new gateway to the city of Glasgow. Its current architecture and proposed development plans show Glasgow as the city to invest in and relocate to.

‘Glasgow is now at a critical point. The downturn cannot be allowed to halt the momentum of growth nor diminish the vision for this part of Glasgow, by being ignored in face of cost cutting. Glasgow City Council has demonstrated that it has ambition and believes in the long term vision for Glasgow.’

Letting agents are Ryden and Montagu Evans. Montagu Evans is also managing agent.
