There is a housing development for the graving docks? I can't find anything about it online.

† †Cost - £150 million
† †Location - Govan
† †Status - Planning
† †Start date - 2006
† †Completion date - 2013

An intelligent residential scheme in Glasgow. Whatever next? A new pedestrian footbridge will connect the Science Centre to the docks along a linear park. The unique nature of the site requires parking to be split between silo spaces in two reclaimed docks (the third will be kept as a water feature) and split level undercroft parking with planted roof. The riverfront will be refurbished to prevent flooding and provide public access, focussed on a new plaza. Cutting edge architecture in Govan? Believe. An extended gestation has survived loss of a hotel, but the site remains a tremendously awkward build, something of a ZM speciality. Anticipating some flesh on these bones.

That being said ... given the dates the project has either been shelved or tossed in the river !

Interesting but it doesn't really confirm that it WILL be built... just £6.7M on planning it

Scotway House is back on the market for sale after the deal to turn it into Scotlands Museum of Music collapsed. As the building is listed no doubt there will be flames on site shortly after any deal is concluded.


cybers called it. :(
