Commercial-property consultancy Lambert Smith Hampton (LSH) has submitted plans in Glasgow, Scotland, for a mixed-use development that would include a drive-through Starbucks and a Storage Vault self-storage facility. The businesses would be built next to the M74 highway on a property at Polmadie Road. City officials will consider the project this summer, according to the source.
LSH is acting on behalf of Storage Vault and OCO Westend Ltd., which operates three Starbucks franchises in Scotland. Though there are three Starbucks locations in Glasgow, the Polmadie project would be the first drive-through Starbucks in the city, the source reported.
“Starbucks has a very ambitious growth strategy, and a great track record in using their investment to support community regeneration, so they need a planning team that can keep pace with them,” Graeme Laing, planning director at LSH, told the source. “Our experience with businesses like the co-operative, which also has large-scale expansion plans, means that we’re perfectly positioned to support them.”
LSH works with developers, investors and occupiers in the public and private sectors across Ireland and the United Kingdom, according to the company website.
Scotland-based Storage Vault has self-storage facilities in Glasgow and Paisley, with two other projects under development. The company’s principals have 15 years of experience in commercial-property ventures.
