Chance to see plans for new Two74 development
Residents will be able to have a look at the multi-million pound Two74 at Rutherglen Library tomorrow (Thursday).
As we reported in April ,Ashfield Land, who are taking the project forward, have lodged a proposal of application notice with South Lanarkshire Council.
Now Ashfield are holding a public consultation at the library, located on Main Street, from noon till 7pm.
As stated on Ashfield’s website, the development will be anchored by a major food store and will also offer restaurants, a nine storey 170 room hotel, 50,000 sq ft sport retail, 55,000 square foot of employment with over 800 car spaces. The value of the scheme is £50million for a site covering 20 acres.
It will be situated near junction two of the M74, near Duchess Place.
When the plans were unveiled in 2009, Ashfield said it could attract 730 jobs to the area and represented investment of around £50million.
Two74 is located on the Cambuslang Road, around one mile east of the town centre.
Director of Ashfield Land in Scotland, Steven McGarva, said: “We are keen to complete the planning stage of the development this year, with 2016 being the delivery phase.
“We have been in positive talks with potential occupiers at the site.”
The original proposal had included a nine screen cinema, however Mr McGarva said this may be “difficult to deliver” due to the fact there is a saturation of cinemas in the wider area with facilities at Silverburn, Glasgow Fort as well as a luxury cinema chain coming to the Buchanan Galleries extension.
