■ Retail, leisure and other occupiers are consolidating around transport links and Buchanan Street, creating a strong amenity offering in this central core.


■ Suburban local authorities are providing 87% of new housing supply in Greater Glasgow despite the city of Glasgow having the strongest projected household growth.

■ Infrastructure investments are creating, and reinforcing, demand for industrial sheds, business parks and residential development along key routes.
