Plans submitted for 1,100 new homes, a hotel and leisure space at Glasgow Waters
Peel L&P has submitted outline planning submission for 1,100 homes, a 200-bedroom hotel and 2,500 square metres for a mix of leisure venues at Yorkhill Quay, part of its Glasgow Waters development.
The land, located on the Northern banks of the River Clyde in the West End of Glasgow, between the Riverside Museum and the Scottish Event Campus, is currently derelict and has been earmarked for development under Peel L&P’s masterplan for Glasgow Waters. The proposed 1,100 homes will consist of open market, build to rent and co-living residences.
The residential-led mix of uses including hotel, leisure and commercial activities will help repopulate and reactivate the waterfront, creating a vibrant and diverse destination which complements and connects with surrounding uses at the Riverside Museum, Clydeside Distillery and nearby SWG3.
The development of Yorkhill Quay offers a unique opportunity to reconnect the riverfront between key tourist attractions with Govan, across the new pedestrian bridge, the SEC Events Campus, River Kelvin walkways and neighbouring communities in Partick and Finnieston.
A series of ‘River Rooms’ create larger areas of protected public realm along the new River Walkway with buildings and open space framed with panoramic views of the water and the city’s famous landmarks.
Brian Lavalette, Peel L&P’s Property Director for Scotland said: “We’re pleased to be submitting plans for Yorkhill Quay after a successful public consultation and we’ve taken the community’s feedback on board in refining plans to make the development the best it can be.
“These plans are in keeping with the objectives of the Clyde Mission and we’ve been working closely with the Scottish Government and local council to develop Glasgow Waters which includes Yorkhill Quay and Castlebank Quay.
“We want to create a sustainable community that uses low carbon energy generation where possible and we’re confident that our wider Glasgow Waters development will help the Clyde to attract further investment in retail, leisure and tourism as well as create hundreds of much-needed homes.”
The public consultation ran in November 2020.
