Atlantic Square is a new Grade ‘A’, 300,000ft2 sustainable mixed-use development located in the heart of Glasgow’s International Financial Services District (IFSD).
The development, linked at ground level by a new high quality public realm, will comprise two commercial buildings of ten storeys (180,000ft2) and six storeys (80,000ft2) respectively, with ground floor retail space in both. A third building will feature high-quality retail and residential accommodation.
A six storey commercial and residential gateway building on the corner of Argyle Street and York Street will visually and physically connect the development site of the city fabric to the north. This building aesthetically sets the visual tone for the commercial buildings at the heart of the site and new urban space.
The gateway building leads into the heart of the development site where two further commercial office buildings of ascending scale are linked north/ south and east/ west by the new high quality urban realm.
The development will retain the grade ‘A’ façade of the listed warehouse buildings on James Watt Street, to further link to the site’s trading heritage to the River Clyde waterfront.
