We're thrilled that the North East Glasgow District (Cowcaddens, the Learning Quarter, the Merchant City and Townhead) Regeneration Frameworks have been approved by Glasgow City Council.
Urban Movement led the development of mobility and public realm strategies and the design for associated infrastructure projects, alongside a fantastic team including Austin Smith Lord (consultant lead) and Studio for New Realities, in close collaboration with Glasgow City Council.
These DRFs are 10-year regeneration plans with a series of short, medium, and long-term actions that combine strategic planning and placemaking with shorter-term operational and environmental improvements. The DRF programme is part of the council’s City Centre Strategy, which aims to develop the area as a more inclusive, sustainable, mixed-use place capable of supporting a growing population.
You can see them for yourselves below, and we look forward to seeing them become a reality on the streets of Glasgow over the next 10 years.
