Knight Frank secures new office in Aberdeen’s west end

305 Albyn Place

Knight Frank has become the first tenant to secure office space in a newly refurbished west-end building in Aberdeen.

The deal sees the independent commercial property consultancy’s north-east team move from its former offices on Albert Street to 3-5 Albyn Place, which has been recently upgraded by developer Surplus Property Solutions. The property consultancy has leased 980 sq. ft. and occupies the ground floor.

The building combines a traditional granite façade and a modern three-storey extension to the rear, with the recent investment boosting the property’s green credentials to an EPC ‘A’ rating. A range of upgrades include a new air conditioning system, LED lighting, and EV charging points, as well as a new business lounge, breakout spaces, and reception area.

Knight Frank said that it was attracted to the high quality of the space on offer, which will allow its team of 10 to work more efficiently and collaboratively, combined with the property’s boosted environmental performance.

With several properties in the area undergoing refurbishment to bring traditional listed buildings in line with modern occupiers’ requirements, the west end continues to be a favourable spot for professional services and energy firms.

Matt Park, partner at Knight Frank Aberdeen, said: “3-5 Albyn Place offered us an excellent office environment and provides us with room for expansion, with the bonus of the business lounge a real attraction suited to the way we work. We hope our staff and clients will enjoy our new home.”

Mark McQueen, partner at Shepherds, acting on behalf of the landlord, said: “We are delighted to have secured Knight Frank at 3-5 Albyn Place. The building provides high quality, open plan, EPC A-rated office accommodation creating a modern working environment for occupiers.

“We are receiving good levels of interest in the development and expect further occupiers within the property shortly.”
