Duo forms part of a UK expansion drive from Frasers Property, the development arm of Singapore conglomerate Fraser & Neave. Private and serviced dwellings form around two buildings of a unified design. These units cantilever out over adjacent roads and increase in height from south to north.

Green ribbons extend down the elevations and across the courtyard to integrate the elements around shared public realm. This is treated as an external room with trees, bands of soft planting and an external water feature, all of which contributes to a continuous public route from Jamaica Street through the IFSD.

Commercial functions populate ground floor areas and basement parking is provided.

Previous scheme

Duo is immediately adjunct to 200 Broomielaw and adjacent to 220 Broomielaw & Glasgow City Mission. Frasers Property had indirect involvement with Ferry Village through acquisition of Fairbriars catalogue.
