About the Business Park
Rosemount Business Park is owned and managed by Rosemount Workspace Ltd. Rosemount Workspace Ltd is a subsidiary of Rosemount Development Trust and is a registered not-for-profit charity, limited by guarantee.
The Trust was formed in 1989 by a group of local residents who were concerned about the high level of unemployment and poverty in Royston, Glasgow.
A long term lease was secured on a primary school in Royston, along with capital grants totalling £600k, to convert the school building to provide 14,000 square feet of office accommodation and dedicated child care facilities. The refurbishment works of the "Millburn Centre" was complete in 1993 and the Centre quickly achieved 100% occupancy. In 1994 a second phase of development was undertaken providing a further two business units, and eight small workshops, creating additional job opportunities for local residents.
In 1997 Rosemount Development Trust set up its first wholly owned subsidiary company, Rosemount (Workspace) Limited.
The former British Rail Workshops in Royston were targeted for the building of a new business premises and negotiations with the British Rail Property Board and Glasgow City Council ensured a 125 year lease.
The building of the new business premises, Rosemount Business Park, in Charles Street was completed in 1999. Rosemount Business Park continues to provide high quality rental space while supporting the community of Royston, Glasgow.
