Burness Paull takes space at Atlantic Square
Independent commercial law firm Burness Paull is taking space at BAM TCP’s development in Glasgow’s International Financial Services District.
The firm has completed a letting at 2 Atlantic Square and joins engineering and project management consultancy Atkins which last year became the new building’s first occupier.
Burness Paull will take a 10-year lease on the 14,814 sq ft. fourth floor of the 96,650 sq ft offices.
“After a two year search across the city we believe we have found the ideal home at 2 Atlantic Square,” said Tamar Tammes, managing partner at Burness Paull.
“Our goal was to find a new base for our colleagues in Glasgow that was not only tailored to our new hybrid working principles, but also met the highest standard of environmental credentials.
“It is an impressive building in an area undergoing rapid transformation into the heart of Glasgow’s business district.
“Moving there sets us up perfectly for modern flexible working and ensures that clients and colleagues have easy access to a full range of transport connections.”
The £150 million, Grade A Atlantic Square development totals 300,000 sq ft across three buildings, with one pre-let to the UK Government as part of the HMRC Hubs programme, forward funded by Legal & General Investment Management. It will house more than 2,000 employees.
Dougie Peters, managing director of developer BAM Properties, said the letting shows a strong future for commercial office space in Glasgow.
Atlantic Square was designed by BAM Design and Cooper Cromer Architects, constructed by BAM Construction Scotland and developed by BAM Properties in a joint venture with Taylor Clark.
BAM Properties’ other properties in Glasgow include 110 Queen Street and Clarion, while it is also behind the recent Capital Square development in Edinburgh.
