Does anyone know if GCC still own this land, or if it has been sold?

Also does anyone know who I would contact regarding temporary projects on the site?

Some info on the current plans for that site are here (with a contact number and email address):

You could try for a temporary project. Good luck. I think there have been approaches in the past that have been declined.

The only example of temporary use on that site I can recall is the Market Gallery screening for the 2010 Glasgow Film Festival -

City Property now owns the site. Think they are subsidiary of the council.

Site investigation works were carried out on the site in 2016. Going forward it may be the council spend some money on the site to then get a private developer involved, but likely not to be until 2018.

Hi Emma, glad to see others are interested in improving or using that site too! A few of us locals last autumn spoke to the council and also to SP Energy who run the active substation there. In the end I got too busy with other stuff to pursue it further but perhaps you and I could collaborate?

Hello there. Funny you should raise this, I am thinking about opening a pop-up burger bar in this location. Thoughts?
