Page + Park Architects, Glasgow, submitted a 46-unit tower for planning approval in Sep 2004.

The developer for the Tower has formed the Dixon Street Partnership specifically for this development. The new building is located on the corner of Dixon Street and 308 Clyde Street and on axis with Buchanan Street.

The Dixon Street Tower is 15 storeys to the North but steps down to 8 storeys towards the River Clyde. The tower has a semi-amorphic facade with undulations and indents. Bizarrely it has been christened the ‘McGherkin’ by some (according to the Press) despite having none of the ‘purity’ of Foster & Partners‘ Swiss Re skyscraper in London – nicknamed the ‘Erotic Gherkin’.

The RFACS is reviewing the project. Close by is the proposed Unicorn Tower on Clyde street by gm+ad architects:
