THE former Debenhams unit in the St Enoch Centre could be turned into offices and a rooftop garden as developers ask members of the public for their thoughts on the latest blueprints.

Ambitious transformation plans have been revealed which include new retail, leisure and entertainment opportunities as well as new homes, a four star hotel and office space that would occupy the Debenhams unit. 

A rooftop restaurant could also be built at the site which has dominated Argyle Street and now lays empty.

Glasgow may also see its first axe-throwing facility as part of the plans.

Sovereign Centros are now preparing to submit a planning application but want to update members of the public on new proposals which have been amended to include widened streets, increased daylight and a public square.

People can also view the updated proposals on St. Enoch Centre website and can submit any comments and suggestions to a dedicated masterplan email address.

Guy Beaumont, Director at Sovereign Centros, said: “We are excited by our vision for St. Enoch Centre and how we can future-proof and enhance it.

“We are at the beginning of a long journey and consultation and engagement is hugely important to us. Over the last few months, we have carried out detailed and extensive engagement with a variety of city centre stakeholders, Glasgow City Council and of course, the local community.

"We have welcomed all feedback and many of our conversations have focused on the importance of inclusivity, connectivity and the need for well-considered public space. Based on this valued consultation we have enhanced our proposals and we are keen to share the latest updates before we submit our planning application.”

Glasgow Times:

Stuart Patrick, chief executive of Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, added: “More than ever, we need to encourage people into our city centre, and the mixed-use development proposed for St. Enoch would allow us to maintain our position as a leading retail destination, while creating a well-connected, well designed community.

“There are several infrastructure proposals set out by the Connectivity Commission, including the Avenues programme, which are designed to improve pedestrian experience and the St Enoch masterplan further compliments this vision. We are very supportive of this investment for Glasgow City Centre and look forward to seeing plans develop.”
