International hotel operator Hilton has become the latest tenant at the recently refurbished 191 West George Street in Glasgow’s city centre.
The hotel chain has taken approximately 42,000 sq. ft of office space across three floors. The operation was previously located at Cadogan Square.
Knight Frank acted for owner NFU Mutual, while JLL represented Hilton.
A Hilton spokesperson said: “We are pleased to announce that next year our Glasgow corporate office will relocate to an exciting new workspace at 191 West George Street. Having recently been named as the best hospitality company to work for in the UK, the new office will allow us to continue to deliver on our promise of providing a great place to work for our team members.”
Tom Foley, NFU Mutual Asset Manager, said: “To secure a high calibre tenant such as Hilton Worldwide Limited for the quantum of space being taken is a great result for the Fund. The strong tenant line up in the building endorses the asset management decision to refurbish the building upon the previous occupier’s lease expiry in 2016.
“The comprehensive refurbishment undertaken ensures a lasting legacy for a well located prime office building in the Glasgow office market. With just one floor remaining, it’s almost a full house at 191 West George Street. Some brave decisions were made at the time of redevelopment – such as infilling the building’s atrium.”
