Glasgow may not be as glamourous as Edinburgh or as scenic as Aberdeen, but it is much more affordable than both. Glasgow remains one of the most affordable major cities in the UK with the cost of living and renting office space considerably cheaper than other cities. One might assume as the cost of living is low that not a lot of economic activity takes place here, but the opposite is true. Glasgow is considered the shopping capital of Scotland and is the third most attractive city in the UK for business investments.
People make Glasgow
Our city slogan, People Make Glasgow, holds true across both leisure and business sectors. Glasgow grows and retains its talent, providing some of the finest, most well-educated, and skilled workers in the country. We have several highly regarded universities and where we really excel is the percentage of graduates who remain in the city to live and work. This offers potential employers and businesses a wide pool of skilled workers to choose from and reduces the cost of relocating and rental properties for employees. This speaks to the city’s appeal as a fantastic place to live and work.
Office space in Glasgow
Glasgow is a picturesque city with many heritage buildings and impressive architecture. Many of these stunning buildings have been converted and are much-loved as office space. Glasgow is also packed with brand new buildings with modern design and energy-saving innovations included. The office scene in Glasgow is a melting pot between modern and traditional with Victorian buildings opposite shiny new office blocks. Combine this with the lower cost of rental space compared with Edinburgh, you’ll have a lot more choice when looking for a space that suits your business.
Barclays Campus in Glasgow
Barclays have recently completed its brand new, purpose-built office campus in the Tradeston area of Glasgow. The bank has collaborated with experts from the University of Glasgow to uncover Tradeston’s industrial heritage and bring aspects of its heritage into its ultra-modern new space. The Glasgow campus is set to bring over 2000 jobs to the city and house its technology, functions, and operations teams in the Buchanan Wharf development on the banks of the River Clyde. The new Barclays HQ will be known as the Barclays Glasgow Campus and will hold up to 5000 people in 500,000 square feet of office space, retail, and community amenities.
Leader of Glasgow City Council Councillor Susan Aitken said: “We can all look forward to the campus contributing to Glasgow’s economic renewal and becoming a symbol of the regeneration of both Tradeston and the ongoing return of life to the Clyde.”
