This new urban business district benefits from planning consent for up to 111,500 sq m of Grade A office accommodation on the edge of Glasgow city centre. The area is well served by a new rail station, upgraded national motorway network and is 15 minutes from Glasgow International Airport and offers a workforce of over 2 million within a one-hour journey.

2014 Commonwealth Games Legacy investment in the local area has resulted in award winning public realm and new world class sports facilities at the Emirates Arena and Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome.

The first phase of development, Red Tree Magenta a 3,250 sq m collaborative workspace, was 50% pre-let and is now fully occupied. The site benefits from a district heating and cooling network served from a local energy centre provided by a third party at no risk to investors.

Glasgow is facing a shortage of Grade A office accommodation, and vacancy rates are well below their 10-year average. Magenta at Clyde Gateway will be one of the UKs most extensive office parks, extending to 27 acres on the banks of the River Clyde.

The park sits within the urban fabric of the city alongside the newly re-located £22 million custom built Police Scotland Regional HQ helping to position this new district as an emerging part of the Glasgow business community.

Over £1.5 billion has been invested in the immediate area to date resulting in 100,000m2 of award-winning business space and 3,000 new homes.

Magenta is wholly owned by Clyde Gateway, a partnership between Glasgow City Council, South Lanarkshire Council and Scottish Enterprise. Highbridge Properties Plc is Development Partner to Clyde Gateway. CBRE, Savills and Ryden have been appointed as advisers to the project.

Magenta has the support of the Scottish Government and is part of the National Planning Framework (NPF3). Incentives are available to occupiers, including Regional Selective Assistance plus a range of other local authority/public sector initiatives.
