New lease of life for 17 Renfield Street, Glasgow

Topland’s 17 Renfield Street in Glasgow has secured The Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission on a new 13-year lease, on the fourth floor of the well-known building. Knight Frank and Savills represented Topland on the deal, while Andrew Reilly Associates represented The Scottish Criminal Cases Review.

Since acquiring the centrally located listed building last year, Topland has undertaken a significant re-brand of 17 Renfield Street, including re-modelling the entrance, common areas and delivering quality refurbishment of the vacant suites.

The Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission’s move has opened up the building’s fifth floor. The space will now undergo refurbishment before becoming available in January 2020, offering 4,876 sq ft of full air conditioned office space within the core city centre.

Steve Pope, group director of property and asset management at Topland , said: “17 Renfield Street is a well-known building in the heart of Glasgow city centre – we have invested to re-position the building in the market. This letting is further proof that our strategy is working, and we look forward to delivering the 5th floor to the same standard in January 2020.”

Sarah Hagen, Associate at Knight Frank, added: “Topland has been very hands-on with 17 Renfield Street, taking a proactive approach to enhancing the property’s offering to current and potential occupiers. Increasingly, securing The Scottish Criminal Case Review Commission on a 13-year lease is testament to the improved quality of space offered.”

Colin McGhee, Associate Director at Savills, added: “17 Renfield Street offers quality open plan office accommodation at a competitive rent within the heart of the city centre. We look forward to offering the fifth floor to the market early in the New Year, we believe the quality of refurbishment will be appealing to a wide variety of modern occupiers.”
