News from Scotland: Glasgow Harbour Development entering its next phase

Proposals for the £100m Glasgow Harbour development submitted by Lifestyle Outlets were approved by Glasgow City Council on January 29, 2020.

When complete, the development will bring about the rejuvenation of the key waterfront site with a mixture of retail, food and drink, leisure, a flagship multiplex cinema and public spaces for events, activities and performances. As part of the proposals, a new footbridge will be created linking the Lifestyle Outlet with the Riverside Museum, improving wider connectivity for the area.

Jason Pullen, Lifestyle Outlets’ Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to have secured permission for a development which we believe will be complementary and supportive to Glasgow’s growing international reputation as a major retail, leisure and events destination. Retail has evolved beyond recognition in recent years and our aim is to create a new generation of outlet shopping destinations which have leisure and entertainment at their heart.”

The development will have a 36 month build program and discussions can now take place with potential retailers and leisure operators.
