Leading legal business DWF is to lease new offices at CONNECT110NS, 110 Queen Street, in Glasgow’s Style Mile to support the strategic aims of the firm and enhance the working environment for its people.

The law firm will occupy the entire fourth floor of the building, a total of 18,544 sq ft of space, on a 15 year lease.  With offices in 14 locations in the UK, Dubai, Brussels and Ireland, the Glasgow team will relocate from their current office at 310 St Vincent Street in 2016.

Mark Broderick, Development Director Scotland, BAM Properties which developed the Queen Street building said, “DWF was keen to secure prime office space enabling the opportunity for expansion and we are delighted DWF chose CONNECT110NS.  Earlier this month we welcomed our first tenants and it’s terrific to see the building start to come to life.”

Existing occupiers feature a number of leading professional service organisations including Brodies LLP, Deloitte LLP, Grant Thornton UK LLP and WSP/Parsons Brinkerhoff.  Armani is the first retail tenant on board, opening a flagship store early in the New Year, along with CAU, Carne Argentina Unica’s first Scottish operation, both located on the ground floor fronting onto Ingram Street.

Paul Pignatelli, DWF’s executive partner for the Glasgow office, said: “The move is a significant milestone for DWF and marks the next stage of strategic growth for the business. It enables us to move from working across three floors to one open-plan space that will enhance the working environment for our people - encouraging further interaction, collaboration and flexibility.

“The new office not only offers a distinctive offering in a great location for our people and clients, but it reinforces our approach to agile working, teamwork and client service excellence.”

Three floors now remain for lease, totalling 55,700 sq ft along with two retail units.  Cushman & Wakefield and Phil Reid Associates represented BAM Properties and Savills acted on behalf of DWF LLP.
