S5W-15781: Annie Wells (Glasgow)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 3 April 2018

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-13982 by Humza Yousaf on 29 March 2018, how much it estimates it will cost to change some of the initial steelwork already erected at the site.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 24 April 2018

I announced on 16 March 2018 that, following discussion with key stakeholders, a decision had been taken to take forward a greatly enhanced development at the North Hanover Street car park site at Queen Street station. At an investment cost of £80m this will deliver extensive retail, food and beverage opportunities which will generate a greater rental income. In addition a development deck will be delivered upon which further private sector investment can be taken forward.

The full announcement can be located using the following link:

A Steering Group involving key stakeholders has been formed and will take forward the development of the alternative proposal.

The outputs of these discussions will determine the nature of any change required to the initial steelwork already erected.
