Project will include dramatic glass frontage and new entrance
Network Rail has selected the Buchanan Partnership - a joint venture between Land Securities and Henderson Global Investors – as its partner on a multimillion-pound redevelopment of Glasgow’s run-down Queen Street station.
The project, which includes installing a dramatic glass frontage, is expected to run from 2013 until 2015, with some improvements made for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Inside, the concourse will be extended and a new mezzanine level food court will be added above the existing car park, with a multi-storey car park constructed.
There will be an atrium link to the Buchanan Galleries shopping centre while there will be a new entrance at Cathedral Street and the Dundas Street and North Hanover Street entrances will be redesigned.
Lester Hampson, head of retail at Land Securities, said: “The redevelopment of Glasgow Queen Street station will create a world-class integrated transport hub and is an important element in progressing our aspiration to enhance and expand the Buchanan Quarter, cementing Glasgow’s position as the top retail and leisure destination outside London.”
