Austin-Smith:Lord set to revamp Helensburgh waterfront

  • Comment

Austin-Smith:Lord has landed local authority-backing for its £6 million project to upgrade the town centre and waterfront in Helensburgh on the Firth of Clyde in Scotland

Part of Argyll and Bute Council £30 million ‘CHORD’ Project, the public realm masterplan remodels the historic grid-iron town which was first laid out in the 1750s.

Colquhoun Square, a former quarry, will be transformed into a ‘civic plaza’ while the town’s main thoroughfare Sinclair Street will be revamped.

The waterfront West Bay Esplanade will also be reconfigured.

Graham Ross of Austin-Smith:Lord said: ‘Our design approach is contemporary but sensitively responds to the fabulous legacy of the planned grid of Helensburgh and the wonderful setting on the Firth of Clyde.’

Councillor Gary Mulvaney, the project board chair, added: ‘The design team of Austin-Smith:Lord have clearly listened to the people of Helensburgh and by working with them have come forward with a design which will enhance the town for residents, businesses and visitors alike.’

The project has yet to win planning permission but is on schedule to complete in early 2012.
