Glasgow City Council (GCC) is recruiting a lead designer to draw up four high-profile regeneration masterplans
The winning consultant – supported by a multi-disciplinary team – will develop transformative frameworks for the city’s historic Blythswood Hill and riverside Broomielaw districts.
New visions will also be required for the area surrounding Glasgow Central Station and around the St Enoch Shopping Centre which replaced a Victorian terminus in the 1980s.
The announcement coincides with GCC’s anticipated adoption on Thursday (12 November) of a new masterplan for the Charing Cross, Sauchiehall Street and Garnethill area by Gehl Architects.
Key proposals contained within Gehl’s framework include a public park bridging the M8 outside the Grade A-listed Mitchell Library and new cycle paths.
According to GCC, the latest frameworks will be expected to blend long-term placemaking and spatial planning policies with shorter-term environmental initiatives designed to increase footfall.
An evidence-based vision developed in collaborative with local communities which also details short, medium and long-term actions to deliver on its objectives will be required.
The contract – estimated to be worth £500,000 – will start in April and run for three years. Shortlisted bidders will present their schemes to GCC in January.
[The deadline for requests to participate is 12noon on 16 December]
