Areas of serviced office space in Glasgow have been snapped up by a pair of media industry companies both looking to increase their presence in Scotland’s largest city, parties involved with the deal have announced.
The businesses are the independent television company ‘Raise the Roof’ and Digirati, which acts as a digital enterprise consultancy, and they each now have new offices at The Hub development at Pacific Quay in the Clyde district. The Hub was built with the particular aim of attracting creative industry operators to the relevant part of Glasgow.
The property consultancy firm CB Richard Ellis (CBRE) acted on behalf of the landlord in the case with Raise the Roof agreeing to take up 1,373 sq ft of space at the site and Digirati having signed up for 1,747 sq ft of serviced offices.
“The Hub is a great space to base your business. We appreciated the flexibility offered when expanding our operation with everything possible done to facilitate a quick and easy move within the building,” said Jane Muirhead, managing director of Raise the Roof.
“The accommodation is light, airy and spacious and the 24/7 access and security is an added bonus for a company that works within the TV production sector,” she added.
John Baker, managing director at Digirati, meanwhile said: “As we have started to expand our Scottish operations we wanted to move to a new working environment that was conducive to the innovation and creativity that Digirati has become well known for; The Hub fitted that requirement very well.”
Local CBRE surveyor Alastair Urquhart talked up the potential of The Hub as a space for companies in similar sectors to work closely in quality and well-located serviced offices in Glasgow.
