Glasgow Fort is a large 'out of town' shopping and leisure park located in Auchinlea Park, Provanhall and adjacent to Easterhouse, Glasgow just off Junction 10 of the M8 motorway.
The scheme is unusual when compared to other local out of town schemes such as Braehead and Silverburn in that it is uncovered and therefore the spaces between units are open to the elements. The design of the area incorporates a 'two-sided mall design' intended to recreate a traditional high street.
The scheme opened in October 2004 with Phase 1 of the development providing 390,946 sq ft (36,320.1 m2) of retail accommodation. There are currently over 80 retail units and 4 additional kiosks. Retail range in size from small single floor 570 sq ft (53 sq m) spaces to large multi-floor units that are over 22,000 sq ft (2,000 m2) in size. There are approximately 2,500 car parking spaces for the park. In 2016 a new Multi-Storey car park opened with over 300 spaces in it.
From 2012 to 2013, an extension to Glasgow Fort Shopping was under construction. It opened in October 2013, where hundreds of Glaswegians attended the grand opening. The extension includes five new restaurants: Chiquito, Prezzo, Pizza Express, TGI Friday's and Harvester. Along with a Vue Cinema with 8 screens.
Between 2014-2015 another large extension began. With various new restaurants, various shops and a large Marks and Spencer, the extension opened in the later half of 2015.
Glasgow Fort is the only shopping complex in Scotland with its own dedicated motorway junction (J10 of the M8).
