A host of major brands joined the site last year including a flagship Marks & Spencer, Scotland’s only Kiko Milano beauty store, jeweller Pandora, fashion retailer FatFace and restaurants Wagamama and Tony Macaroni.

A multi-storey car park with 600 free spaces is expected to be complete by the summer and Glasgow Fort is also set to welcome four more restaurants this year.
