The Custom House Quay and Carlton Place Project is significant, both in terms of its City Centre waterfront location and as an important element to the City Deal Clyde Waterfront and West End Innovation Quarter Programme.
The project is divided into two separate sites of Custom House Quay (CHQ) and Carlton Place (CLP) which are on opposite sides of the River Clyde, being north and south banks respectively, and which are bounded to the east by Victoria Bridge and to the west by Glasgow Bridge.
It is proposed that City Deal investment will be used to fund the construction of a re-aligned quay wall and provision of development platforms within a high quality public realm setting at Custom House Quay. On the opposing south bank the project seeks to consolidate Carlton Place Quay and enhance its historic townscape qualities through sensitive interventions.
Overall the intervention will reinvigorate an important section of the City's waterfront; creating an attractive, vibrant, viable and sustainable place for citizens and visitors.
