Anderson Strathern latest to sign up at BAM’s Capital Square in Edinburgh
Anderson Strathern has become the latest law firm to take a letting at Capital Square in Edinburgh, taking the development to almost 90 per cent occupancy.
The firm has taken 21,432 sq ft across the ground and first floors on a 15-year lease, representing the largest new build Grade A office transaction in Edinburgh this year. The firm will relocate its staff from an office on Rutland Court to Capital Square following a period of fitting out.
Earlier this year law firm Pinsent Masons achieved a Gold ‘Well’ certification for its office in Capital Square, the first in Scotland to do so. Brodies has also recently taken occupation of a new office in Capital Square following completion of a high specification fit out.
Awarded the Best Commercial Workplace in Scotland in 2022 by the British Council for Offices, the newly completed Grade A development is located in the heart of Edinburgh’s Exchange District.
It is equipped with an abundance of ESG features including an intelligent LED lighting system, electric car charging points and solar panels and also has a landscaped courtyard, outdoor seating and a private garden area. It has just secured an International Green Apple Environmental Award 2022 for work towards biodiversity.
Acting on behalf of the landlords BAM and Federated Hermes, global real estate advisors CBRE and JLL are the letting agents at Capital Square. As well as developing Capital Square, BAM also designed and constructed it, and now provides facilities management services for the building.
