The River Clyde was the focal point at the Nordic River Blot launch of Atlantic Quay 1,2 & 3 when the City’s agents took a rib ride showing contemporary Glasgow from the Clyde. Resonance Capital a JV partner with Moorfield, which purchased the buildings in August 2015, launched the plans to revitalise AQ 1, 2 & 3 to Glasgow’s agency community.
Commenting on how the plans for AQ will capitalise on its location and re-engage its business community with the Clyde, Angela Higgins of Resonance Capital said: “We are preparing to reinvent the site, to push it back into the limelight and create something special on the City’s waterfront.
“The river has been largely ignored and we wish to turn our attention back there, to revel in the buildings’ outlook onto the Clyde, with its unique benefits to the workplace. The ability to walk, run and cycle there or just relax are of real benefit.
“A ‘Grade A’ interior refurbishment begins soon and our branding and theme is created out of the colour palette of the Nordic countries – citrine yellow for the low sun and greys and blues to reflect the waterways. Inside, we plan crisp contemporary Scandinavian interiors and to enhance with bespoke artwork in the same theme. Hence the underlying message in our branding and in our Icelandic musical note is “stay here with us”.
“We sit within the Broomielaw regeneration area and on the fastlink, other bus routes and on the doorstep of central station. Our open space on site allows breathing space and it’s such an unusual benefit in the City centre and again, we have already begun to use that, with a successful summer event for the workforce and we are shaping our plans to create a coffee facility there. There is much more to come and our drive will be to create a business destination with a strong focus on community”.
