Renfrew Riverside

Renfrew Riverside is one of the largest regeneration projects in Scotland, covering 75 hectares of land between Braehead and west of the Renfrew Ferry. 

A masterplan for the site provides the framework for an urban extension to Renfrew consisting of 2000 new homes and a million square feet of business and leisure uses.  Over the last ten years the area has been transformed into a thriving mixed use development, including:-

  • Over 1,000 new homes providing a mix of house types and sizes
  • A new Renfrew Health Centre and Community Police Station
  • The iconic Soar leisure complex, offering a real snow slope, cinema, indoor bowling alley and speciality retail;
  • Commercial uses, including a new business park and hotel
  • The 7 Acre Clyde View Park and Riverside Walkway
  • Transport improvements, including M8 Junction 26 and widening of Kings Inch Road to four lanes, providing a bright, tree lined boulevard as the central spine of the development
  • Pedestrian and road connections to Renfrew town centre

The Renfrew Riverside area will also benefit from major investment as part of the Glasgow City Region City Deal, including delivery of a new opening bridge across the River Clyde and a new North Renfrew Development Road.  This will provide the catalyst for the continued regeneration of the area.
