With the expansion plans of the retail park, hundreds of jobs are expected to be created. The Glasgow Fort situated off junction 10 of the M8 will have a cinema and five restaurants.
During the constructional phase, up to 250 jobs will be created and another 200 will be created after it is finished next summer. The extension is expected to cost £9 million and covers 45,000 sq ft and will add a Vue cinema, Prezzo Harvestor, Chiquito and Pizza Express to the area. The centre manager at the Glasgow Fort says that a leisure development will be a great addition to the area and provide a real boost in terms of entertainment provision.
