Chance to see plans for new Two74 devel­op­ment

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Will Hen­shaw

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.
