Key milestone

Glasgow’s biggest office building drawing tenant interest

A rooftop running track is among the office’s features

Glasgow’s largest single office building – the new home for CYBG/Virgin Money – is attracting growing interest from potential tenants as it reaches a key milestone.

Work will soon begin on erecting 177 Bothwell’s Street’s steel frame as the project continues to take shape, with completion expected in the second quarter of 2021.

CYBG, which is rebranding as Virgin Money, has already signed a long-term lease, while HFD Group’s serviced office business will take more than 65,000 sq. ft. on the building’s ground, first and second floors.

Developed by HFD Property Group, 177 Bothwell Street is the second and final phase of its wider Bothwell Exchange development, offering around 313,000 sq ft of Grade A office space over 13 storeys.

Stephen Lewis, managing director of HFD Property Group, said: “The building has been very well received by the market and we’re encouraged by the volume and quality of enquiries we’ve had so far, in addition to the pre-letting already secured.”

The property will include an 8,000 sq. ft. rooftop terrace and running track, along with 318 cycle spaces and electric vehicle charging points for commuters.

It is the first development in Scotland to receive a ‘Platinum’ WiredScore certification, ensuring occupiers will have the best connectivity available, while it will also be highly sustainable by targeting an EPC rating of ‘A’ and BREEAM ‘Excellent’ standard.
