Skypark Launches 'The Azure Building'
Moorfield Real Estate Fund II (MREFII), Moorfield Group (Moorfield) and Glasgow based joint venture partner, Resonance Capital, have today (5 September 2013) launched 'The Azure Building', the latest addition to its collection of high-quality office space on the Skypark business campus.
The Azure Building will comprise 135,000 sq. ft. of highly efficient, 'Grade A' office accommodation in Glasgow's most emerging hotspot, Finnieston. It has an imposing frontage to The Clydeside Expressway and will be located adjacent to the campus' main building, Skypark 1, with immediate access to all transport links and all the shops, independent bars, restaurants and leisure facilities the area has to offer.
Larger than average light-flooded floorplates, an impressive entrance lobby and south-facing landscaped terrace will ensure that The Azure Building will attract businesses looking for prestige accommodation in an easily-reached and exciting neighbourhood. The building is served by the Clydeside Expressway; the nearby Exhibition Centre train station and several bus routes that reach both the City Centre and West End within minutes. There will be an extremely generous car parking ratio of 1:865, showers and cycle storage areas.
Tenants at Skypark don't only benefit from easy travel to work; they also enjoy lunchtime fitness classes, site socials that include bands and entertainment, and a multitude of onsite facilities including an on site nursery, prescription delivery, dry cleaning and a full concierge service. Skypark offers a unique business hotel concept to allow those working on campus to play as well as just work.
The Azure Building is being marketed for occupation by a major tenant through a pre-let and will offer very competitive rents for its high-quality specification.
Moorfield's Mark Holmes said: "Today's launch is a massive illustration of the success of Skypark since we purchased it and began our investment programme. It has gone from being 'the sleeping giant', as it was known, to a highly innovative and dynamic business campus that has attracted scores of high profile tenants including several departments of Glasgow School of Art. The launch of The Azure Building is the natural evolution of Skypark - it allows us to offer top-quality, Grade A space in an emerging district that is adjacent to the City Centre."
Ken Barrett, of joint venture partner, Resonance Capital, said: "Today is a hugely exciting day for us as we unveil The Azure Building. The current space at Skypark has recently seen deal after deal as tenants realise that not only do they get exceptional value for money; they also get to work in a really inspiring location. We have so many opportunities and activities on site - from zip slides off the building to bands playing and art exhibitions, there's really never a dull moment here and The Azure Building will offer all these benefits combined with Grade A space, which really is a unique proposition for Glasgow."
