I suppose its makes sense in killing 2 birds with 1 stone in building a new heliport facilty and a river boat rescue service in the one facility for serving the river community and serving the NSGH as well.

Good thinking for once. :)

Site Between Linthouse Road/ Holmfauld Road Glasgow (GSV)

Proposal: Formation of heliport (for emergency services and occasional commercial traffic),

Herald

12 Jan 2011

It promises to bring a touch of glamour to the heart of Scotland’s biggest city and transform its waterfront into an international tourist destination.
The world’s first man-made floating leisure village is to be built in Glasgow as part of a £30 million development housing a marina, shops, restaurants and roof-top concert arena.
The canting basin in Govan, the area of Prince’s Dock where ships used to turn, will be turned into what some see as the city’s answer to the Palm in Dubai, which offers a one-of-a-kind tourist spot on a purpose-built island.
Residents in new studio flats and townhouses will be able to dock their boats at private moorings and “pool” boats will be offered for offices to encourage employees to use the river for getting to and from work and for recreational activities.
Floating Concepts, which is behind the proposals, yesterday unveiled artists’ impressions of the finished site after being given the go-ahead by Scottish Enterprise some 18 months after the development first went out to tender

Well-intentioned, and all that, but that looks like Ra Barras-On-Sea.

How's about they just refrain from annihilating the remaining vernacular architecture and attract tourists based on Glasgow's residual reputation as a Word-Class city rather than the provincial backwater with yer standard extraordinarily-expensive-attempts-at-iconic-buildings-to-distinguish-from-every-other-provincial-backwater stuff that, well, every-other-provincial-backwater has? Oh, and a reasonably short airport to City Centre journey in the hired car. Let's not forget that major advantage.

An old report from oct 2010, and a street survey video.

Floating Concepts



Floating Concepts, based near Manchester, is proposed to convert the derelict docks behind the Glasgow Science Centre and IMAX cinema near Govan into a £30 million floating village. The proposal would see the 12.5-acre Canting Basin become a waterborne development including homes, offices, restaurants, and a 230-berth marina.

STV news report for the redevelopment of the canting basin @ Pacific Quay. :D

Architects chosen for Glasgow 'floating village'

BD


London architect Baca and Glasgow-based ZM Architecture have been chosen to develop designs for a £30 million floating village in Glasgow.
The pair, who are part of a team called Floating Concepts, have come up with plans to transform the 5ha Canting Basin – part of Prince’s Dock at the back of the city’s Science Centre – into a floating community with shops, offices, houses, restaurants, a marina and a roof-top concert arena, centred around a new canal with a U-shaped floating roadway.

Very cool idea. I'm trying to picture it though with the rain peeing down and a junkie or two floating face down in the water.

With distinctive shops and restaurants and interesting homes then it could be a real asset to the city. But if it's another stream of chain restaurants among office blocks and some lifeless flats, just with water, then they'd be best not bothering.

http://www.capellagroup.co.uk/pd_brommielaw_quay.html

Capella Developments has been selected to develop an exciting new restaurant quarter on the Clyde waterfront at Broomielaw Quay adjacent to the IFSD and the new Tradeston bridge. The scheme, which will be a joint venture with Glasgow City Council, will comprise 4 pavilion style buildings totaling around 30,000ft2, linked by high quality public realm and an enclosed ‘winter garden’.

The development will provide a vibrant new leisure destination for Glasgow’s residents and business community, as well as becoming a major attraction for tourists to the city. Up to 10 new restaurants, coffee houses and eateries can be accommodated which is aimed at providing a continental style food offering in what is an un-tapped market for Glasgow.

A Planning application was submitted in May 2011. It is anticipated that work will start in early 2012, with completion expected in time for the first rays of sunshine on the Clyde in spring 2013!

:roll: :roll: :roll:
Cynicism apart, having had the dubious delight of working for a while at SE on the Broomielaw a few years ago, the bit of grass on the riverside was nice to walk along at times, but the heavy traffic on the road somewhat spoiled it. Maybe an artists impressions showing 4 lanes of traffic would help?

It all looks good, but my cynical side is what is there already in the way of companies/shops etc. already committed to housing themselves in said development. There has to be something to draw the footfall through these buildings in order to keep them sustainable - and also - they need to be accessible and not cut off by busy roads. Look at City Quay in Dundee as a prime example - cut off by roads, the place couldn't generate the footfall needed and the shops quickly folded and it is now occupied purely by small businesses meaning it is dead at the weekends and evenings leaving the place a target for vandals.

Have we really learned the lessons of the Anderston Centre in the 1970s and The Briggait in the late '80s? I'm not so sure to be honest.

I'm not sure the Anderston Centre is a fair comparison. I, too, have concerns about the viability of this venture but I had doubts about the viability of The Quay and, no matter what you think about it aesthetically, it seems to be a commercial success.

Depending on the shops in this northside development, there'll presumably be trade from the IFSD during the day and the food and drink/ public houses might bring custom in the evening.

It might just work.

I think that the IFSD and the old Renfrew Ferry might just be enough to keep it viable, but the city has failed in the past to draw people down to the river bank or just beyond Hielanman's Umbrella. I would have said that easy transport is the key to making a venture successful, but going back to the Anderston Centre again - it had an underground car park and a bus station, which didn't help very much - whilst the Quay gets most of its trade I suspect from people in cars as it is just off the Tradeston exit on the M8. Difficult one to predict really. Let's wait and see.

I had occasion to visit one of the blocks of Anderston Centre flats at the start of the week. Their recent visual transformation is remarkable but the area roundabout is still bleak and uninviting. A wee bit of money from Hilton, City Parking and maybe Taylor Woodrow would go a long way to improving the environment
