Glasgow’s largest office tops out
HFD Group has marked the topping out of its steel-framed development at 177 Bothwell Street by running the first laps of the building’s much-anticipated rooftop running track.
Stephen Lewis, Managing Director of HFD Property Group, and Richard Smith, Associate Director of HFD Construction, visited the site to celebrate reaching the highest point of the 14-storey development, which is set to become Glasgow’s largest single office building.
The pair completed more than 40 laps of the rooftop, while a further five members of the team completed the challenge virtually, raising more than £6,000 for Parkinson’s UK.
177 Bothwell Street will provide around 29,000m² of Grade A office space in the heart of Glasgow’s International Financial Services District. It has been specifically designed with staff wellbeing, connectivity, and sustainability at the heart of the plans with the open-air running track and 743m² rooftop terrace.
Mr Lewis commented: “177 Bothwell Street is going to provide Glasgow’s business community with the quality office space they need to help them attract and retain the best talent.
“Research has shown that employee wellbeing is among the top priorities for employers and this project has been designed with occupiers at the heart of it.”
