Glasgow City Council appoints Savills on City Centre Strategy

14 September 2016

Glasgow City Council has appointed international real estate advisor Savills to assist on a residential strategy review as part of a wider City Centre Strategy (2014-19) programme.

The objective of the ‘residential strategy’ is to support the growth of the population in the City Centre, using evidence that responds to the various opportunities and constraints that exist. This will involve finding residential uses for redundant office space and upper floors of buildings within the city centre. It will also address the need for affordable, family-friendly housing and acknowledge the growing trend toward city centre and waterfront living.

Jamie Doran, at Savills Glasgow, comments: “The growth of Glasgow’s residential capacity needs to work in tandem with the overall strategy for the city centre if it is to be successful and sustainable. As such, through detailed evaluation of residential supply and demand, and the involvement of the key people, stakeholders and businesses that play an important part in Glasgow’s city centre, we will inform new planning policy which will allow new opportunities for City Centre living to be unlocked.”
