Paisley Business Front
Six miles shy of Glasgow City Centre, Paisley is a great area to house a company if you are searching somewhere that has great transport links in to town, along the Clyde, to the airport and can reach out to the west coast. It helps as well that the price of professional property in the area is nominally lower than in Glasgow.
Some noteworthy business parks in the area include Phoenix, Greenlaw, Blackhall & Airlink Industrial Estate. Because many view it as an arterial link to the Glasgow, Renfrew Road, Glasgow Road, Maxwell Street and Gauze Street are also seen as convenient places to house commercial properties.
Travelling in to Glasgow and getting around the country is simple from Paisley. It can take anything from 10 to 20 minutes to get to Glasgow Central Station depending on the time of day. Glasgow Airport is only a five minute drive. The M77 towards Kilmarnock, Prestwick Airport and Ayr is just a 5 minute drive through town. Paisley has three railway stations. Paisley St James and Paisley Gilmour Street are the quickest locations from which to get in to Glasgow Central with an average journey time of 11 minutes. Getting a train through here to Edinburgh Waverley, either directly or with a quick connection to Glasgow Queens Street, takes an on average 1 ½ hours. And of course Glasgow International Airport is just a few minutes away, making it extremely to get to any part of the country or further afield.
Paisley is home to the University of the West of Scotland’s Main Campus, as well as four secondary schools and five primary schools. Just a few miles north across the Clyde River in the west end of Glasgow is the University of Glasgow and of course closer to the city centre are the Glasgow Clyde College, the Glasgow School of Art and City of Glasgow College.
Because it is so close to Glasgow City Centre, most residents plan their nights out and take the train in to town. Spend any time in Glasgow Central on a Friday evening and you’ll see just as many workers commuting home as your will people coming in for a big night out.
