A public information event will take place on 20th June 2018, 3-8pm at the Holiday Inn, Hope Street for proposals to convert the existing four storey terrace to office accommodation and develop a new office building on land to the rear. The total development would comprise approximately 80,000ft2 of office accommodation and ground floor cafe and car parking. Further information can be obtained from Clyde Shanks Planning.
