Queen Margaret Drive Building
Former BBC Scotland HQ
The former BBC Scotland HQ in Queen Margaret Drive in Glasgow is to be redeveloped as the head office for the G1 leisure group.
The sale of the landmark building in Queen Margaret Drive has been agreed for an undisclosed sum.
BBC Scotland left the premises, which it had occupied since 1936, four years ago to move to Pacific Quay on the south side of the River Clyde.
It is understood that the BBC sold the building to developers for £18million.

Planning Approval for Development on Former BBC HQ Site
25 Feb 2009
Applecross granted planning approval for the development of 159 new homes.
The Queen Margaret Drive plans were originally approved Feb 2008 but this new decision by Glasgow City Council approves an amended plan which reduces the number of properties and the size of the underground car park.
The new plan provides for a range of high quality apartments and townhouses. Two listed buildings will be converted into a hotel. Work on the development is likely to start towards the end of 2009.
