Revamp brings Glasgow office into 21st century

Culzean Building GlasgowA historic Glasgow office block has been brought into the 21st century following a £1.9 million facelift.

The Culzean Building has undergone major renovations which have included the introduction of air conditioning and the owners have now launched a search for new tenants.

The detached seven-storey building - including basement and ground floor - is in Renfield Street, near St Vincent Street.

It was called Culzean House until bought by the Unilever Pension Fund in 2006 for £9.2m after stiff competition from six other bidders keen to buy the city centre Grade B property.

Built in 1924, the Culzean Building now has office available to lease following the upgrade which has included a new entrance with a service video system, new toilets and showers on every floor, as well as a cycle rack facility and car parking in the basement.

The new-look office block is managed on behalf of the pension fund by CBRE Global Investors.

Its official Hannah Marshall said: “The refurbishment of The Culzean Building marks our commitment to Glasgow’s commercial property market and to the provision of good quality space in a bid to attract occupiers and jobs to the city.”

She added: “We are quoting competitive rents from £17.50 per sq ft exclusive of car parking.”
