New tenant for art deco building
Bupa signs up at historic Sutherland House
Refurbishment of the art deco building cost £1.6m
Healthcare giant Bupa has signed a 10 year lease agreement to take space at Sutherland House, Glasgow.
The new Health Centre in St Vincent Street, scheduled to open in early 2018, will offer its customers health assessments, physiotherapy and GP appointments.
Danny Brown, Bupa Area Manager – North, said the new clinic will replace its centre on West Regent Street.
Bupa which was represented by Peter Fleming of Capita is the first new tenant since the B-listed building’s £1.6 million revamp and it joins other tenants including CBRE, Turcan Connell, the Scottish Federation of Housing Associations and Itelligence.
Sutherland House was once the headquarters of global thread manufacturer J&P Coats and was designed by renowned architect James Miller whose other projects included Wemyss Bay Railway Station and the Turnberry Hotel.
Fergus Maclennan, associate at Cushman & Wakefield, who acted on behalf of the landlord with joint agents Knight Frank, said: “It is great news that we have secured Bupa so quickly for the ground floor suite.
“Sutherland House is undoubtedly one of the most well-known buildings on St Vincent Street and the architects Corstorphine + Wright have worked hard to bring out the art deco features of this popular building with a contemporary design.
“We are delighted with the refurbishment with the entrance totally transformed with striking features. We are receiving great feedback from occupiers and fellow professionals, which is really pleasing.”
