Bridgeton Cross is one of the most historic and important parts of Glasgow, and is where Clyde Gateway has located its offices.
Located just one mile east of Glasgow City Centre, it is home to the A-listed Bridgeton Shelter and Clock (referred to locally as the Umbrella) and the Olympia Theatre of Varieties, it also has some marvellous examples of Victorian-era tenements as well as a railway station offering fast and frequent services to the city centre as well as destinations west and south of Glasgow.
Clyde Gateway, in 2009/10, invested just over £1m to improve Bridgeton Cross with a new road layout, trees, lighting, bus shelters, street furniture while memorials to Robert Burns and local Victoria Cross awardees were installed.
The Umbrella, originally erected in 1875, was restored to its full glory with repairs to its cast-iron columns and clock tower.
A local Community Stakeholder Group was involved in every part of the process to deliver this change, from selecting the design team all the way through to asking the Lord Provost of Glasgow to perform the opening ceremony.
The transformation has again made Bridgeton Cross a high-quality, attractive, safe area for shoppers, residents, pedestrians, public transport users and local businesses.
The Red Tree Business Suites in Bridgeton will be the second set of affordable office suites to be delivered by Clyde Gateway, following on from Red Tree Business Suites in Rutherglen.
They will be located on the upper-floor premises at 21-51 Dalmarnock Road, less than 100 yards around the corner from Bridgeton Railway Station, and will involve the conversion of a number of shop units and premises that have lain derelict for more than 20 years.
Red Tree Business Suites, Bridgeton will create 18,000 square feet of flexible, stylish and affordable business space, consisting of thirty-five units, starting from 200 square feet in size. The total cost of the development is £3.6m, of which £1.14m is being provided by the European Regional Development Fund.
Towering over Bridgeton Cross is the imposing structure of the Olympia Theatre of Varieties, which first opened in 1911.
Over the years it has served as a theatre, cinema, bingo hall and furniture warehouse before closing in the mid 1990s. It fell into a sad state of disrepair and stood as a symbol and reminder of Bridgeton's proud history and heritage.
In late 2009 Clyde Gateway purchased the property. Work is now underway to re-open the Olympia as home to a new state-of-the-art public library and learning centre together with a café on the ground-floor with the first-floor being dedicated to a training centre and new Headquarters for the governing bodies for amateur boxing and wrestling. The top two floors will be developed as commercial office spaces and the building will be in use for up to 16 hours a day, seven days a week.
The new library and café will open in Autumn 2012
The total cost of the re-development of the Olympia is £10m, of which £2m has been provided the Town Centre Regeneration Fund and almost £1m from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Located just 300 yards of Bridgeton Cross, at the junction of Brook Street and London Road, one of Glasgow's largest new-build offices is currently under construction and due to open in Spring 2012.
Eastgate is a 6,000 square metre development, costing £9.7m, and will be the new HQ Building for Glasgow Community Safety Services (GCSS).
The office is are being built on a derelict site by Dawn Developments and is being fully funded by Aviva Investors, the largest manager of real estate in the UK. It has been designed to BREEAM 'excellent' standards ensuring it has a top rating for sustainability and environmental performance.
GCSS is an organisation which aims to prevent crime, tackle anti-social behaviour and promote community safety in the city, and brings together around 500 staff from Glasgow City Council, Strathclyde Police, Strathclyde Fire and Rescue and the city's Community Safety Partnership.

Clyde Gateway East is a high-quality business park on a 12 hectare site adjacent to Junction 2A of the M74. It has planning consent for business (Class 4), general industrial (Class 5) and storage and distribution (Class 6) uses.
It aims to provide a sustainable, high quality environment to support growing businesses while delivering community benefits.
It is the first commercial development in Scotland to benefit from a Smart Grid electrical distribution network from Scottish Power and the telecommunications network is designed to offer a choice of ICT network providers, including BT.
Site works got underway in January 2010, and the first development plateau will be available from May 2011. Further information can be found at www.clydegatewayeast.co.uk
Rutherglen Station has been the location of the biggest single physical improvement by Clyde Gateway to date with an investment of over £2 million. A new road layout, improved lighting, landscaping and greenery were installed, while a nearby tenemental wall adjacent to the new Burgh Primary School became the site of modern artwork.
Real time train information at the station entrance and on Main Street, Rutherglen have also been provided.
There are six trains per hour westwards to Glasgow Central and beyond (Milngavie and Dalmuir) and four trains eastbound to Motherwell and beyond to Lanark.
More than 600,000 passengers use Rutherglen station every year, a figure that is double the usage back in 2002/3.
Rutherglen (from the Gaelic ‘An Ruadh Ghleann’, meaning ‘the red valley’) is an historic Royal Burgh dating back to 1126. The burgh was traditionally a centre of heavy industry with a long coal mining tradition and today is home to 25,000 people.
Main Street is the location of its main shopping area and has benefited from substantial investment by South Lanarkshire Council with the result being a hugely attractive and high-quality public realm stretching along both sides of its ¼ mile length.
The Council has also spent £12.5m refurbishing the A-Listed Rutherglen Town Hall, originally constructed in 1862, with a 110 foot-high Clock Tower. The Town Hall is now a premier location for arts and cultural activities and, exhibitions, and home to a caféé and mezzanine bar located inside a new multi level glass and steel atrium.
Opened in November 2007, this is located on Dalmarnock Road, Rutherglen just ½ mile from Main Street and at 100,000 square feet is the largest single store within the Clyde Gateway area. It is opened 24 hours a day, and includes an opticians, mobile phone shop, car wash and petrol station.
Adjacent to Tesco is an 80,000 square foot self-storage facility, a residential development of 120 two and three-bedroom flats, known as The Laurels and delivered by Barratt Homes, as well as the Clyde Gateway Trade Park.
Strathclyde Police Authority, in partnership with Clyde Gateway, is bringing forward proposals for a new Headquarters building at a site bounded by French Street, the new East End Regeneration Route and the River Clyde. This would be a replacement for the existing HQ building in Pitt Street, Glasgow and does not involve any change to the use of the current Divisional Police Station located in London Road near Bridgeton Cross.
An extended period of public consultation was held in March 2011 ands a formal planning application is due to be submitted in mid-2011.
Strathclyde Police Authority will take a final decision on whether to proceed with the project in late 2011.
Situated between Farmeloan Road and Cambuslang Road in Rutherglen (and on the site of the former Monogram Factory), this project looks to deliver a mix of residential, commercial and light industrial uses on a site that is just 200 yards from Rutherglen Station. There will also the ability to create new public open spaces within the site as well as new cycle routes and walkways.
Clyde Gateway has committed £430,000 of resources to develop a Masterplan for the project and has made a bid for external funding via JESSICA (Joint European Support for Sustainable Investment in City Areas).
The Red Tree Business Suites in Rutherglen are the first set of affordable office suites to be delivered by Clyde Gateway,, located within the former Housing Offices at 24 Stonelaw Road, adjacent to Main Street., ands scheduled to open in May 2011.
They will create 8,500 square feet of flexible, stylish and affordable business space, consisting of twelve units, starting from 200 square feet in size. The total cost of the development is £1.6m, of which £650,000 is being provided by the European Regional Development Fund.

The regeneration of the Oatlands community pre-dates Clyde Gateway having begun back in April 2005.
The main aim of the proposal is to create a high-quality neighbourhood containing just under 1300 homes, of which just over 200 are for social rental. There will also be a more than £2m of improvements to nearby Richmond Park as well as the provision of a range of local community and commercial facilities.

The construction of the private houses and apartments is being undertaken by Bett Homes, and further details can be found at http://www.betthomes.com/developments/richmond-gate
Located on London Road and adjacent to the East End Regeneration Route, construction on the National Indoor Sports Arena (NISA) and Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome are scheduled to open in mid-2012.
NISA will have 5,000 spectator seats while the velodrome will have a capacity of 2,500. The complex will also be home to a community based sports hall, outdoor floodlit 5-a-side pitches, extensive health and fitness provision and an indoor roller sports park, as well as the administrative based for national sports federations and the sports development unit of Glasgow Life (previously known as Culture & Sport Glasgow).
Glasgow Rocks, the only professional basketball franchise operating in Scotland, will play all home matches at NISA.
The 2014 Commonwealth Games Athletes' Village will occupy a massive 38 hectare site bounded by the River Clyde, Springfield Road and Dalmarnock Road. It is also adjacent to the NISA/Velodrome development.
In July 2014, thousands of athletes and officials will live on the site. After the Games it will be transformed into a new riverside community in the heart of Clyde Gateway, consisting of an initial 704 homes and flats available for occupation, together with a 120-bed care home for the elderly. Further phases of development will see an additional 765 homes on the site.
The Athletes' Village will be delivered by the City Legacy Consortium. Further information can be found at www.citylegacy.co.uk
Clyde Gateway Trade Park is in the Farme Cross area of Rutherglen and is situated adjacent to the Tesco Superstore. It opened for business at the beginning of 2010, offering 4000 square metres of industrial/warehouse/office space in up to 8 separate units for sale or lease. There is also communal car parking and yardage.
Four of the units are already occupied by James Young Engineering, Evolution Fasteners and Blue Crescent.

Southcroft Park, the home of Rutherglen Glencairn Juniors FC, was closed and then demolished in 2007 to make way for the M74 extension. A new stadium was constructed nearby and officially opened in August 2009. As part of a sponsorship deal with the club, the new home of Rutherglen Glancairn is known as The Clyde Gateway Stadium.
The tie-up is aimed at raising the profile of Clyde Gateway within the burgh as well as providing a boost to the club as they seek to maintain a place in the top-level of Junior Football in West and Central Scotland.

For more than 60 years until its demolition in 1980, the chimney of the coal-fired Dalmarnock Power Station, located on the banks of the River Clyde, dominated the local landscape.
The site has lain derelict for more than 30 years, but was purchased by Clyde Gateway in 2010 as part of its plans and efforts for the overall regeneration of the Dalmarnock area.
The site, which extends to 6.58 hectares has now been cleaned-up and de-contaminated. Over the medium-to-long term, Clyde Gateway will be bringing forward development plans to bring the site back into full use, but in the shorter-term, part of the site will be used to house a Sustainable Urban Drainage System to assist with other developments in the vicinity, particularly around the Railway Station.
The scheme known as Two74 is located on the Cambuslang Road, around one mile east of Rutherglen town centre adjacent to Junction 2 of the M74.
Granted planning permission by South Lanarkshire Council, Two 74 is a proposal by Ashfield Land, a property development and investment company. It is a mixed-scheme to be anchored by a major food store and will also offer restaurants, a nine storey 170 room hotel, 9 screen cinema, 50,000 sq ft sport retail, 55,000 sq ft of employment with over 800 car spaces. The value of the scheme is £50 million for a site covering 20 acres.

2.19 hectares (5.42 acres) of derelict land at Jessie Street, close to Junction 2A of the M74, are being re-developed for industrial use by Clyde Gateway.
The work will create four new plots which will initially be offered as relocations sites for businesses currently located at Shawfield Industrial Estate.
Proposals are being worked up to redevelop part of the 27 hectares area of land at Cuningar Loop in South Lanarkshire as public green space in partnership with Forestry Commission Scotland.
The plan involves an Arboretum on the north-western half of the site which has a boundary with the River Clyde directly across from the 2014 Commonwealth Games Athletes' Village. This would involve the establishment of designed woodland walkways, tree planting, maintenance and site landscaping as well as other improvements aimed at turning Cuningar Loop into a visitor attraction.
A feasibility study is currently underway to look at a full economic and business case which will be reported to the Clyde Gateway Board by the end of 2011.
First opened in 1895, Dalmarnock Railway Station is just three stops and seven minutes from Glasgow Central the largest and busiest train station in Scotland.
There are four trains per hour westwards to Glasgow Central and beyond (Milngavie and Dalmuir) and four trains eastbound to Motherwell and beyond to Lanark.
The station currently has low patronage with just 80,000 passengers per year, but this figure is expected to rise significantly as a result of the construction of new attractions nearby such as NISA/Velodrome and the Athletes' Village.
The station is to receive almost £10m of improvements between now and 2014 thanks to funding package put together by Clyde Gateway, Glasgow City Council and Strathclyde Partnership and with the support of the European Regional Development Fund.
These works will create a new transport hub around the station, including the relocation of its main entrance onto Dalmarnock Road.
The construction of the 2014 Athletes' Village will change the shape and feel of the northern and eastern parts of Dalmarnock. Clyde gateway has a long-term vision for the southern part of the community which will take the substantial parcels of vacant and derelict land and create a new neighbourhood incorporating a range of uses including residential, business, industrial, commercial, transport and civic.
Part of the proposals involve the creation of a new central area around the railway station, similar in feel to Bridgeton Cross, in which shops, offices and businesses would be located within a whole new road layout.
The initial public consultation held in November 2010 found there was widespread support for the idea. Detailed proposals are being worked up, in partnership with architects and engineers, and the aim is to have further public consultation in the latter half of 2011.
Much of Clyde Gateway's initial activity in Shawfield has centred on the continued acquisition of land and buildings particularly of properties located on the Industrial Estate between the Greyhound Stadium and the River Clyde. There have also been major investments in remediation works given the known history of chromium contamination from a former chemical works that closed in 1967.
The construction of the M74 and East End Regeneration Route affords new opportunities for the area, and proposals are being worked up top create a National Business District in Shawfield as a development of high-quality business and office spaces to be the location of thousands of new jobs. As part of the proposals, Clyde Gateway, with support form the European Regional Development Fund, will construct a new pedestrian bridge to span the Clyde and provide quick and easy access to Shawfield from the new-look Dalmarnock Station.
