Glasgow City Centre, Merchant City
Ambitious plans for a redevelopment of the square
was cancelled in January 2013, after an international
design contest, following public feedback.
Now a more modest plan of replacing the red tarmac and
establishing more grassy areas has been implemented. The
statues also remain on the square.
A second phase will follow after the Commonwealth Games in
2014. The overall budget for the project is £15m, with
£500,000 for the initial work to be carried out before the
2013 for 1st Phase, after 2014 for 2nd Phase.
Between 2003 and 2014 Clyde Waterfront was a strategic
partnership comprising the Scottish Government, Scottish
Enterprise, Glasgow City, Renfrewshire and West Dunbartonshire
Councils. Its purpose was to promote the economic, social and
environmental regeneration of 13 miles of the River Clyde from
Glasgow city centre to Dumbarton.
