Second big letting deal
NFU Mutual signs up HP for refurbished Glasgow offices
Blue chip tenants for 191 West George Street
A refurbished office block in central Glasgow has signed up blue chip IT company Hewlett Packard as its latest tenant.
HP is taking an entire floor at 191 West George Street, and becomes the second occupier for NFU Mutual’s landmark office development following completion of an extensive overhaul.
The letting involves 11,000 sq ft on the fifth floor on a 15 year lease and follows Edrington-Beam Suntory UK securing the fourth floor.
Tom Foley, NFU Mutual asset manager, said: “To secure a tenant as prestigious as HP at the rental level achieved is a real testament to the comprehensive refurbishment we decided to undertake following the building becoming vacant in 2016.”
The £5.5 million refurbishment project by NFU Mutual created 87,000 sq ft of Grade A office space over six levels with virtually column-free floorplates that range from 10,432 – 15,011 sq ft.
JLL acted for Hewlett Packard in the transaction whilst joint letting agents Knight Frank and JLL represented NFU Mutual.
