Graving Docks, Govan
A masterplan was unveiled which will see the graving docks at Govan, close to this Pacific Quay building, being redeveloped as a site for 500 homes, a 300-bedroom hotel, houseboats, bars, a floating restaurant and shops. The former Harland & Wolff tidal basin and dry docks will give way to a plaza, designed by the French architects, Valode & Pistre, for the city council.
