THE new motorcycle “village” built by Pacific at Hillington Park is expected to create up to 50 new jobs and attract 20,000 customers in its first year.
The new “destination shopping” concept is part of a £10 million development by the UK arm of the park’s German owners – Patrizia Immobilien – and is thought to be the first of its kind in Britain.
The two motorcycle dealerships behind Ducati Glasgow, Triumph Glasgow and West Coast Harley-Davidson have moved from their existing Glasgow city centre bases to two new, purpose-built showroom and service facilities on the site.
The jobs boost was revealed at the weekend in an article The Herald, which is a follow-up story to media coverage that the project attracted last year and which had Pacific Building at its centre.
In May, 2016, we revealed that Pacific had secured the contract to deliver the new £10million motorcycle “village”.
