09 Aug 2012

Planning permission has been granted for a major superstore in the Gorbals, creating over 400 new jobs.

Cathcart Developments has been working with Tesco Stores Ltd on the  24 acre masterplan which will include office, residential and retail space. The scheme incorporates an 80,000 sq ft Tesco store, 105,000 sq ft of office space and 200 homes.

The Herald reported that the plans had been approved, along with another supermarket development, just across the M74.

The project is set to complete the regeneration of the Gorbals. More than 400 new jobs will be created in the supermarket as well as new training opportunities. The development is expected to provide an economic boost to the area, reduce the need to travel to shop and provide a mix of uses delivering an attractive location to live, work and shop.
