Glasgow City Council has appointed a multidisciplinary team to begin design work for the regeneration of the Broomielaw, Blysthwood, St Enoch and Central areas as part of its City Centre Districts initiative.
The quartet of initiatives aim to unlock economic, cultural and social improvements for the city through improvements to urban structure. They will target issues such as vacant buildings, under-utilised plots, changes in retail patterns, city centre living, public open space, safety and traffic.
The appointed team is led by MVRDV and Austin-Smith:Lord with support from a range of other consultants including Ryden. The Ryden contingent will be providing property market research and development consultancy advice to inform each of the strategies as they develop.
