The development adds 7,378 sq ft of new office space to the existing Earls Court office scheme, taking the total floor area to c 25,000 sq ft.
This new accommodation is contained within a single terraced block and split into a maximum of 6 suites across the ground and first floor. High Street Group Ltd has moved into the ground floor of Building 8 on a 5 year lease term, whilst Graypen Ltd has leased the ground floor of Building 9, also on a 5 year deal.
High Street Group Ltd commented on their move “High Street Developments are delighted with our new office which provides us with a central base for the growth of our homes business in Central Scotland.”
Danny Payne, Operations Director at Graypen Ltd added “The decision to relocate to Earls Court was made very easy when we were initially presented with the plans of the building and offices and realised that we would be moving to first class facilities in order to support our growing business and to further enhance our local reputation. The location couldn’t be any more perfect for our core business ‘Shipping Agency’ being so close to the Grangemouth Docks. All in all we couldn’t be happier with the move.”
Jonathan Houghton, Property Portfolio Manager at Northern Trust commented “We are delighted to welcome our new occupiers to Earls Court. During the construction phase we received strong interest in the development, and securing the new lettings shows that there is demand in the area for the high quality product that we offer. The offices have been constructed to a high specification and provide a modern working environment in an excellent location, with direct access to junctions 5, 5A and 6 of the M9 motorway.”
Cameron Whyte from Ryden, joint letting agents acting on behalf of Northern Trust added: “I am delighted the offices in the second phase of Earls Court have let so quickly with over 50% of the development under offer prior to the construction works completing and shortly before this Phase One reaching fully let status. I am confident the quality of the space and prominent location will see the last remaining suites follow suit shortly.”
Mike McIntyre, director at DM Hall, joint letting agents on the scheme commented, “It’s fantastic to see high quality tenants coming to Earls Court, with deals done before the buildings were complete. I am firmly of the opinion that the quality of accommodation on offer, combined with its excellent motorway links, is putting us in a great position to attract occupiers looking for space in the Grangemouth and Falkirk areas.”
