Chunghwa factory demolition starts
Demolition of the former Chunghwa Picture Tubes (CPT) factory at Eurocentral in Lanarkshire has started to make way for a £330 million office and warehousing/manufacturing unit development.
The project is the largest speculative business development of its kind north of the border and has the potential to create in excess of 5,000 jobs on Scotland's leading mixed use business park.
Clearly visible from the main M8 motorway network between Glasgow and Edinburgh, the 663,000 sq ft Chunghwa facility was officially opened by The Queen and the Rt. Hon. Donald Dewar in October, 1997.
It closed in 2002 and was bought a year later by Tritax Assets Ltd, as part of the company's ongoing development plans for Eurocentral.
Tritax Director, Ian Ross, said the new development was also one of the largest speculative business space projects ever undertaken in the UK.
"When we purchased the former CPT building we had identified the opportunity to make the transition from a redundant single user site to a mixed use business park," he added.
"In terms of our plans for Eurocentral it was the wrong building in the wrong place and it will be replaced with 10 new office buildings, four new warehousing/manufacturing units and a range of ancillary developments including restaurant, crèche and gym facilities."
