Glasgow Harbour flats on River Clyde

Phase 1 of the Glasgow Harbour Project, by the Clyde Port Authority at the former Meadowside Granary, Yorkhill Quay and confluence of the River Kelvin in Partick, has consisted of high rise residential accommodation and the construction of a riverside walkway.

The wider area now includes the Riverside Museum (the city’s new Museum of Transport) adjacent to the mouth of the River Kelvin, and there are plans for large-scale commercial developments at the site.

River Clyde Bridges

In September 2006, the Clyde Arc road bridge opened to traffic, enhancing access to the South Bank at the SECC. The Clydeside Expressway (A814) dual carriageway connects the Harbour area to Glasgow city centre and the Clyde Tunnel.

Transport links will also be a key feature of Glasgow Harbour in the future, with a pre-light rail metro system planned, to be called Clyde Fastlink, which will link the area to the city centre areas, with possible interchanges to the Subway. An intermittent ferry service operates between the Riverside Museum and Govan on the south bank.

Glasgow Harbour Tower

There has been plenty of discussion in the Press re the proposals by Peel Holdings for the site near Zaha Hadid’s proposed Glasgow Transport Museum. This has also predictably created news re its cost increment.

The proposals include a supercasino – as per the Ibrox Stadium and the SECC Arena Glasgow schemes. Scotland’s larges city is competing against cities such as Blackpool, London and Manchester for the single UK supercasino permit currently agreed.

The Glasgow Harbour casino would be by MGM Mirage. This property development is on the north side of the River Clyde.
