City Park Scoops All Major Property Awards
City Park, Glasgow, recently adapted and refurbished by Scottish practice Cooper Cromar, has had a fantastic Property Awards season in 2006, recently picking up 4 highly sought after industry awards.
Recognising the major regeneration work that has been achieved at City Park, the British Council for Offices awarded the Scottish Refurbished/Recycled Workplace award; the British Urban Regeneration Association chose City Park for its UK Best Practice in Regeneration award; and Scottish Property Executive selected it for the Regeneration Award for Excellence. Earlier this year, City Park also received the
Commercial Development of the Year award at the Scottish Property Week Awards.
Commenting Paul Martin, MSP said, “In a constituency where unemployment levels are among the highest in the UK, the City Park development has played a significant part in the regeneration of the City of Glasgow. Unemployment statistics have improved significantly in my constituency largely due to the development at City Park”.
Cooper Cromar, who recently won the Architectural Practice Award for Excellence, has adapted the existing building to provide 300,000 sq.ft. of flexible, attractive and cost effective office space, City Park in one building, provides a first class working environment, has its own Business Village with 400 seater restaurant, a 24 hr gym, a shop and ATM. Technical and power solutions are robust and resilient with four
fibre providers, up to 6 MVA of power. Parking for 500 cars is available, 250 of which are in the lower ground floor of the building.
