Eastgate

Cooper Cromar

Eastgate is a new bespoke 65,000ft2 four storey office development providing Grade 'A' office accommodation in Glasgow's East End.

Following completion in February this year the building has already made a significant contribution to the wider regeneration objectives of Clyde Gateway URC and the forthcoming 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Located on a brownfield site 300 metres to the East of the historic Bridgeton Cross, the new building is now established as home to Glasgow Community and Safety Services (GC+SS)and has brought around 500 jobs to the area. As Clyde Gateway's first new commercial office development the building has already proven that it is possible to deliver projects in the East End of Glasgow commensurate in quality with most Grade 'A' City Centre Developments.

Designed to BREEAM 'Excellent' standards, the building's aesthetic draws inspiration from and interprets the former tenemental and industrial warehouse architectural legacy of the Mile End area in a contemporary manner and the wedge form of the building provides a powerful urban edge to London Road. The 4 storey office accommodation is arranged around an inspired atrium space which acts as a central business and social hub experienced by all who use and enter the building providing a high quality of light and transparency to the building frontage and interior.
