Blyth & Blyth relocates to refurbished Cornerstone
In one of the largest office lettings of the year so far in west Edinburgh, engineering consultancy Blyth & Blyth Consulting Engineers has taken the top floor of The Cornerstone Building at the Gyle business park.
Property consultancy CBRE has secured the letting on behalf of landlord PDPF comprising 11,844 sq ft of Grade A open plan office on a ten year lease. Blyth & Blyth is relocating from its current office in Westpoint, South Gyle. The letting follows a period of extensive refurbishment at the property.
Allan Matthews, director at CBRE, said: “It is great news that we can announce this deal, one of the largest so far this year in west Edinburgh. The building looks fantastic following the refurbishment so it is not surprising we managed to secure such a high quality tenant so soon after it completed.
“We’re also receiving significant interest on the two remaining floors and hope to announce further lettings soon.
“Generally we’re starting to see more activity in the west Edinburgh market, and with no new planned development in the short to medium term, it’s anticipated that well located, well specified buildings will let, and a bit of upward pressure on rents will follow which is good news for landlords.”
The Cornerstone Building is situated in South Gyle Business Park, Edinburgh’s premier business park location.
