Buchanan Wharf will be a dynamic city centre district, based on the South Bank of the iconic river Clyde, directly opposite Central Station.
The last remaining riverfront site in the city centre, Buchanan Wharf will blend modern living and dynamic workplaces with international class facilities and unrivalled connectivity, creating a stimulating and engaging destination on the Clyde.
Buchanan Wharf is ideally located on the Clyde riverside, facing the International Financial Services District. With direct access to bus, rail, cycle and motorway networks, and only 15 minutes from Glasgow International Airport, the ambitious and dynamic place making at Buchanan Wharf will activate over a quarter of a mile of river frontage in one of the UK’s most aspirational cities.
Linked directly with Glasgow’s most dynamic pedestrian and retail thoroughfare, Buchanan Wharf is a natural extension of one of Europe’s most exciting city centres, providing a safe, landscaped and stimulating environment, in which businesses can thrive, local residents enjoy life, and visitors are actively welcomed.
A new workplace, a new home, a new heart for Glasgow.
Drum Property Group has exchanged contracts with Legal & General on a Build To Rent (BTR) scheme at Buchanan Wharf as Legal & General seek to meet the increasing demand for affordable, quality rental accommodation across the UK.
Legal & General will forward fund Drum Property Group to deliver 324 apartments within Glasgow’s new waterside regeneration area, which will also house the new Northern European hub of Barclays Bank.
Consisting of two 18 storey towers, current design iterations include dining space, a gym, a residents’ lounge and a games room. The development at Buchanan Wharf, which overlooks the River Clyde, will also offer a 4,250 sq ft communal roof terrace and is walking distance from Glasgow Central Station and the International Financial Services District, linked by the Tradeston Bridge.
Graeme Bone, Group Managing Director of Drum Property Group said: ““This is another important step in the swift evolution of Buchanan Wharf, which is now establishing itself as one of Scotland’s largest and most important commercial and residential development sites. With prime office space plus an exciting mix of homes, local amenities and open public spaces, Buchanan Wharf will be a stimulating and attractive environment in which to work, live and to visit. It is now transforming not just this neglected part of the waterfront but the entire city centre of Glasgow, once again placing the River Clyde at the heart of the city’s economic and cultural regeneration.”
Dan Batterton, Head of Build To Rent at LGIM Real Assets, said: “With Glasgow predicted to continue to see notable population growth, this latest acquisition is another great example of Legal & General investing in an area with significant urban regeneration potential and providing large scale sustainable rental schemes which will have a positive long term socioeconomic impact, delivering much needed homes.”
