Magenta at Clyde Gateway
"The biggest changes to Shawfield will emerge after the M74 extension is completed. Much of Clyde Gateway’s early activities in the area will centre around the continued acquisition of sites, as well as major investment in remediation works given the history of chromium contamination in the area. The long-term vision is to deliver quality business and office space"
A Whole New Approach to Regeneration booklet – October 2008
The promises made in Clyde Gateway’s first ever publication have been kept. More than £20 million has been invested in site infrastructure at Shawfield together with the construction of a new pedestrian bridge to provide direct access to Dalmarnock Station.
An affordable and environmentally acceptable solution, involving the importation under license of a chemical solution from Japan, enabled the long-standing issues of chromium contamination to be solved.
All of which led to Clyde Gateway, in October 2016, attracting a commercial partner for Phase 1 of Shawfield which takes in the former Industrial Estate, bounded on one side by the River Clyde and on the other by the famous old football and greyhound stadium.
Highridge Properties, a specialist business park developer with more than 25 years of experience in the field, is the partner in Magenta at Clyde Gateway. It is the largest office development in Scotland with the capacity to bring 12,000 new jobs withing Grade A space designed to meet precise requirements and standards.
