Bywater Properties has transformed the iconic building at 274 Sauchiehall Street in Glasgow city centre which has been renamed McLellan Works for a new and innovative mixed-use development. Following a range of new office lettings in the building during July 2021 McLellan Works has revealed the first retail letting, post completion of works. Healthy food takeaway Sprigg has signed up to a new, long-term lease with street level frontage, beside the main lobby for the building.
A Glasgow-born takeaway retailer with a focus on health and sustainability, Sprigg has developed a cult following after the opening of their original site on the city’s Ingram Street. Sprigg offers fresh ingredients in the form of salads, snacks and a range of drinks and this will be their second site in the city. With fit out works expected to start in late August, opening is scheduled for late September / early October 2021.
Tom McDermott, the owner of Sprigg, commented:
“We are really excited about being able to expand our business at McLellan Works and were attracted by both the proximity to office customers in the building and the surrounding Sauchiehall Street regeneration area.”
Peter Hutton of Canning Vale Property, letting agents for the retail space, said:
“It is great news that Sprigg are now signed up at McLellan Works. We can see their offer working really well with the wider building and this part of Sauchiehall Street. This is hopefully going to be the first of a few announcements over the summer for new retail occupiers signing up for McLellan Works. So, watch this space.”
Daniel Mead, Head of Asset Management at building owners Bywater Properties, said:
“Bringing the city’s second Sprigg store to our building and this side of Glasgow is a real coup. This brings us another step closer to completing the transformation of the overall profile of McLellan Works and its place as a leader in the regeneration of the city’s Sauchiehall Street district.”
