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.
