Floating Village Concept – Glasgow

Design and development is underway for fifty million dollar floating village in Glasgow. Team “Floating Concepts,” have come up with plans to transform the 5ha Canting Basin – part of Prince’s Dock at the back of the city’s Science Centre – into a floating community with shops, offices, houses, restaurants, a marina and a roof-top concert arena, centred around a new canal with a U-shaped floating roadway. David Beard, chief executive of Floating Concepts, said: “The iconic nature of a floating village will turn the Canting Basin into a major attraction quite unlike any other in the world, as well as being a dynamic centre for local people and businesses.” Floating Concepts will now begin holding talks with Glasgow City Council with a view to submitting an outline planning application as soon as possible.
