Graham + Sibbald Capital Markets team introduced the off-market opportunity to acquire the imposing 218 St Vincent Street, Glasgow to a private client. This was an opportunity that appealed to our client and G+S were subsequently appointed to act on their behalf to acquire the income producing asset.
The Capital Markets team discussed the objectives with their client and outlined the excellent opportunity to mirror these at 218 St Vincent Street. With a strong income stream as well as a vacant 1st floor, the property offered asset management opportunities to add value and improve the yield. Accordingly, a key factor in this instruction, following the acquisition at a fair market value, was the ability to re-let the void office accommodation and deliver on the clients objectives.
Upon securing the instruction, the Capital Markets team liaised with the vendor and legal representatives of their clients until completion. Post acquisition of the asset, the Glasgow Commercial Agency team undertook a full targeted marketing campaign of the property. Using our well-established contacts with agents and occupiers as well as ensuring the property was clearly advertised on the open market using various methods, we maximised exposure of the vacant 1st floor office suite.
Despite a competitive market, our team generated good levels of interest and after a brief marketing period, terms were agreed with a suitable Tenant and solicitors were instructed to progress the letting. Once we had the office suite under offer, our client was made aware of all progress and the team liaised with the Tenant to make sure the process was always moving forwards, ensuring our client experienced a smooth transaction.
The new Tenant will be a great fit to the building and G+S wish them all the bets in their new long-term home.
This project displays G+S ability to understand the objectives of our clients, add real value and deliver fast, professional services with consistently reliable results, as well as enjoying a uniquely personable and enjoyable working relationship with our clients.
