Must read

A new leisure facility is set to open near Glasgow – and it will create several jobs for the area.

PureGym has announced construction on its newest centre has begun at Ashfield Land’s Two 74 Glasgow development, off Cambuslang Road, adjacent to Junction 2 of the M74 motorway.

Ashfield Land – a privately-owned property company focused on commercial development/investment projects – has invested over £2million in the new gym.

The firm has also appointed a local contractor – CM Steel Buildings Ltd – to deliver the 13,000-square-foot building.

The new facility is expected to open in the first half of 2025.

Meanwhile, approximately 12 new full-time jobs will be created by the opening.

Paul Jagroop, Projects Director at Ashfield Land, said “It’s been a pleasure working with PureGym and the design team to bring this project to fruition.

“We’re excited to get started on-site with CM Steel Buildings and to add to the leisure offering at Two 74 alongside Topgolf.

“We’re working with a local supply chain, creating new local jobs and delivering a range of economic benefits, and I’m looking forward to seeing the build progress toward opening next spring.”

A spokesperson for PureGym said: “Following sustained demand for our flexible, affordable offering, we are delighted to be expanding our presence in Scotland and opening in Glasgow Rutherglen in 2025.

“The new gym will be a fantastic addition to the existing leisure facilities at Two 74, providing members with 24/7 access to state-of-the-art fitness facilities through our low-cost, zero-contract memberships.

“We look forward to welcoming members through our doors next year – look out for our opening offer!”

Planning permission for the new gym was granted by South Lanarkshire Council in autumn 2023.

Two 74 lies at Junction 2 of the M74 and is part of Clyde Gateway, Scotland’s biggest and most ambitious regeneration programme.
