Occupiers already expressing interest as construction gets underway on new Grade A offices in Wellington St, Glasgow
Many potential occupiers looking for scarce Grade A accommodation in the heart of Glasgow’s central business district are already making enquiries about the new Apsley House site, Wellington Road, as HBG Construction starts work.
The property, developed by HBG Properties, was sold as part of an innovative 7-property deal (worth £146million) to IVG, which is funding it. HBG Construction demolished the original site and invited interest in the development by using an innovative online demolition game which was nicknamed “Col-Apsley House”. HBG is set to transform the property from its original 25,000 sq ft to about 75,000sq ft.
Michael Smart of HBG Properties said,
‘Despite the early stage of its redevelopment, we have been encouraged by the number of enquires from prospective tenants that we have already received for Apsley House. No wonder: it’s going to be a landmark building for this City, in a prominent location in the city centre, and HBG is determined to achieve an excellent BREEAM rating. Along with the striking design, these factors set Apsley House apart from its competition. Demolition is now complete; construction has commenced and the development will be formally launched in the coming months.’
Ryden and Jones Lang LaSalle are retained to market 29 Wellington Street, a major Grade A office development, due to complete in Autumn 2009.
HBG Properties is the property development arm of HBG UK Ltd. Its current development portfolio has a projected end value of £400 million. It operates from seven regional offices in Birmingham, Bristol, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, London, and Manchester.
HBG UK Ltd is one of the UK’s leading construction services organisations, with a turnover exceeding £880 million. It is part of the €8.6 billion turnover European construction company Royal BAM Group.
IVG and HBG Properties are inviting property agents to compete in the ‘virtual’ demolition of Apsley House, 29 Wellington St, Glasgow. The companies have joined together to set up an online game to allow agents to virtually demolish the site, which in reality will make way for a new 75,000 sqft £35m Grade A office development. Six bottles of Veuve Clicquot Champagne to whoever sets the fastest time. Demolition of the current Apsley House started in October, due to complete Dec 2007. Planning application submitted Jan 2007
