The largest office development with planning consent in Scotland, Magenta will comprise 1.2 million square feet of office space set on the 27-acre former Shawfield industrial estate, next to the River Clyde.

Clyde Gateway chief executive Ian Manson said: “Our Red Tree brand has proven to be very successful with the two existing office blocks operating at full capacity.
