Alison Taylor, director at property advisers GVA, said: “1 West Regent Street is a key development for Glasgow, not just in the high quality space and flexibility it offers, but also for its excellent sustainability, design credentials and public transport links. It benefits from an enviable location which is not only in the Central Business District but is also next to Glasgow’s most popular retail zone.
“The predicted shortage of Grade A space in Glasgow and lack of new development is encouraging occupiers with requirements to consider pre-letting opportunities.”
