Major investment addresses shortage of Grade A office space in Aberdeen’s West End

A major investment by developer Surplus Property Solutions in an extensive refurbishment and upgrading of a prestigious traditional building in Aberdeen’s desirable West End addresses a shortage of Grade A office space within the city centre.

Occupying a prominent location on the south side of Albyn Place close to Holburn Junction, the significant modernisation of 3-5 Albyn Place has achieved an EPC rating of A, and features raised access floors, a suspended ceiling with state-of-the-art air conditioning system, LED lighting throughout, W.C. upgrade, shower facilities, and 48 secure car parking spaces, EV charging points and a new business lounge and reception area.

Developed in the late 1990s, the purpose-built office building features a three-storey section at the front and a modern three storey extension to the rear.

The refurbished premises now provide open plan flexible office space with suites ranging from 980 sq ft to 17,467 sq ft,

Steve Judge, chairman at workplace design and build company Space Solutions, which oversaw the extensive refurbishment and upgrade, said that the modernisation represents a major investment in one of his favourite buildings in Aberdeen.

“This reconfigured building now represents the best of both worlds – exceptional green credentials in a modern space and facilities within a traditional façade at a fashionable address. And it can accommodate both single and multiple occupants sympathetically within its common areas, having been designed with flexibility front of mind.”

Joint agents Shepherd Chartered Surveyors and Ryden have been instructed to market the fully refurbished and upgraded high-profile property to let.

Mark McQueen, partner at Shepherd, added: “This prominent refurbished space with exceptional ESG credentials provides welcome evidence that there is significant investment being made within the city centre and represents a fine example of traditional buildings being brought back to life to meet the needs of modern office occupiers.

“As well as being a very fashionable address, this prime spot ensures all amenities and occupiers are within easy reach. The upgraded space is now flexible, agile, energy efficient, fully modernised and offers generous parking provision in a prestigious location.”

Arron Finnie, regional managing partner at Ryden, said: “The quality of the offering at 3-5 Albyn Place speaks for itself. Surplus Property Solutions has shown confidence in Aberdeen, creating a modern quality proposition within an enviable location in the city. The building is effectively new, providing open plan accommodation ready for a tenant’s fit out with access to a common high end business lounge.

“Assistance can be provided with the fit out of the office suites with the ability for tenants to receive accommodation matching their needs. The space is now complete and ready for viewing with good interest currently being received.”

John Colhoun, Surplus Property Solutions, added: “We look forward to welcoming new tenants to this wonderful space. Hopefully, they too will play their part in supporting the regeneration and future use of buildings like this in the West End of Aberdeen.”
