EASDALE Brothers Buy Huge Section Of Former IBM Site

The site in June this year

GREENOCK businessmen Sandy and James Easdale have purchased a large part of the former IBM site at Spango Valley, Greenock.

They paid £1.57million for 27 hectares (68 acres) of the property at auction early this week. The area involved stretches from the boundary at the former Greenock High School site to the area of the A78 overbridge, and includes the disused 'Blue Building' call centre.

A spokesman for the Easdales confirmed a deal has taken place but would not comment any further.

Earlier this year the brothers purchased the former Misco warehouse in Greenock and Cappielow Trading Park.   

The last IBM staff at Spango Valley moved out in September 2016 and there is no other commercial activity there.

Inverclyde's updated district planning strategy -- currently awaiting Scottish Government approval -- calls for mixed use development at Spango Valley, with up to 50 per cent of the land for housing, and no less than 35 per cent for business and industrial uses with the balance for recreation, leisure, tourism and neighbourhood retail uses.
