As part of its St Vincent Plaza office development, Abstract has officially launched its new public space, a 22 metre wide terraced pedestrian area linking William Street to St Vincent Street, improving access from Hilton Glasgow to the IFSD and the City Centre.

The space was officially launched by Mark Glatman, chief executive of Abstract, Bailie Liz Cameron, and Daniel Van Wyk, manager of Hilton Glasgow, with the help of Lauren Rennie (9) and Aissatou Bah (10) from the nearby Oakgrove Primary School. Abstract has supported the development of the school's Eco Committee projects.

Mark Glatman said: "We have had a fantastic reaction to the new public space that brings a new vibrancy to the IFSD and the central business quarter of the City.

"Lighting is a key part of the scheme with a focus on creating a safe, well lit public realm link. Up-lighting to the M8 underpass and new feature signage forms part of the gateway to the space".

With rents from just £23 per square foot, St Vincent Plaza is a landmark development, located opposite the HQ for Scottish Power and one of the key elements in the on-going development of the IFSD.
