Former Savings Bank Building, New City Road, Glasgow

A district of Glasgow, Cowcaddens is situated close to the M8 motorway and the Port Dundas industrial area. Its 19th Century tenements were largely demolished as part of an urban regeneration scheme designed to promote cultural and educational facilities in the heart of Glasgow. Glasgow Caledonian University, the Scottish Piping Centre, the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, the headquarters of the Scottish Media Group, the Theatre Royal and Buchanan Street Bus Station are all in this so-called Arts and Media Quarter.
