ClassForKids takes 180 West George Street space after growth spurt

ClassForKids, the rapidly expanding management software company for children’s clubs, has leased new office space at Glasgow’s 180 West George Street.

In a significant relocation from smaller premises on St Vincent Street, ClassForKids has secured the entire third floor at 180 West George Street, totalling 7,900 sq. ft. Knight Frank and Ryden LLP represented Picton on the deal, while Lapsley McManus acted on behalf of ClassForKids.

ClassForKids is a welcome addition to the occupier line up at 180 West George Street, which includes; Aberdeen Standard, Arcadis, Pennisula Business Services, Mathworks and PageGroup.

Picton, the building landlord, completed an extensive refurbishment of the office space at 180 West George Street and has committed to continued investment to ensure that it suits the requirements and evolving needs of all modern-day occupiers. These include extensive cycle and changing/welfare facilities, a new look reception area. The building has also achieved a WiredScore Silver rating for connectivity. The final available floor of the building is undergoing refurbishment and will be available by Q3 2020.

Sarah Hagen, office agency associate at Knight Frank Glasgow, said: “The extensive refurbishment of 180 West George Street is paying off by attracting a range of high quality occupiers. West George Street is experiencing a superb renaissance with occupiers being spoiled by its accessibility to Queen Street and Central stations but also the wealth of amenities both in this building and on its doorstep. The addition of a successful, growing business like ClassForKids to 180 West George Street is great news for the building.”

Tim Hamlin at Picton added: “We are delighted to welcome ClassForKids to 180 West George Street and wish them a successful occupation in the building. We are committed to continuing our investment in the building, enhancing the reception and first floor by adding to what is an attractive open plan, modern workplace, and we look forward to welcoming more businesses to the property.”
