Masterplan for Mixed-Use Development of St. Enoch Center in Glasgow

Property developer and asset manager, Sovereign Centros, has submitted a planning application outlining its masterplan proposals for the reimagination of St. Enoch Center in Glasgow. The mixed-use development puts focus on retail, leisure, entertainment, hotel, offices, and city center living.

Sovereign Centros has held two public consultations, inviting stakeholders and the community to find out more about its long-term vision for the center. The proposals illustrate how St. Enoch Center can be sustainably developed over the next 15 – 20 years. This includes:

  • Revitalised shopping and leisure space
  • Up to 1700 homes
  • High quality office space
  • A four-star hotel
  • Inclusive and accessible public realm space

Following the first public consultation, proposals were revisited to include widened streets, increased daylight, and a public square. This ensured more break out space and better connectivity to the retail and leisure offer, and neighboring parts of the city.

Demonstrating its commitment to the enhancement of the site, Sovereign Centros has also recently submitted a change of use application to repurpose the upper floors of Debenhams building, which is currently vacant. The developer has showcased how the space could be transformed into flexible and modern offices, which could be further complemented by a striking rooftop restaurant.

Guy Beaumont, Director at Sovereign Centros, said: “A great deal of effort has been invested into the creation of this masterplan, which reflects extensive engagement with key stakeholders across the city. We have been clear that there is still a lot of detail to be developed and this is the start of a long journey; however, we are confident that what we have set out is an excellent contribution to the city and it will future proof the site.”

Stuart Patrick, chief executive of Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, added: “Investment in our city center is crucial after the challenges we have faced over the past two years. The plans proposed by Sovereign Centros are a vote of confidence for Glasgow in the face of a changing retail landscape, and it is encouraging to see those plans set out a mixed-use development that expands leisure activities as well as workspace and residential areas.”
