The site, which has lain derelict for years, is located between the city centre and Anderston.

Councillors on the planning applications committee granted planning permission subject to conditions at a meeting on Tuesday, June 18. 

This major urban renewal project continues the regeneration of the Clyde riverside by transforming the site from a vacant, derelict former industrial land to one which will create a new residential neighbourhood.

Central Quay will provide four building blocks, comprising 409 private-for-sale (PFS) units, a 934-bed PBSA building, and retail/commercial space.

The design of the new neighbourhood is aiming to meet recognised net zero carbon standards in operation.

It includes features to reduce embodied carbon such as air source heat pumps and solar PV, more trees will be planted and high-quality green spaces will benefit both new residents and the wider community.

It will also include roof gardens, children's play areas and a new public plaza.

It is estimated that the development will support 115 jobs, with around 650 jobs directly created per annum in the construction of the overall scheme.

The site already benefits from planning permission in principle for a mixed-use development of offices, residential, hotel, and associated ground floor commercial uses with access, parking, landscaping and associated works.

Stuart Black, development director for Summix Capital, said: "We are delighted to have received planning permission for this exciting low-carbon development.

“This truly mixed-use scheme represents a significant investment in Glasgow, assisting in tackling the housing emergency through providing much-needed housing and best-in-class student accommodation, as well as commercial space.

“The development of the brownfield site will continue the significant transformation of this location from vacant, derelict former industrial land, to one which will create a new residential neighbourhood.

“We look forward to continue working with the local community and the Council as we progress the delivery of this.”
