Highcross has let 4,384 sq ft at its Sugar Bond office scheme in Leith, Edinburgh to Pulsant (Scotland) Ltd.
Pulsant, which provides connectivity, hosting and managed IT services to medium-sized businesses, has taken a ten-year lease on the sixth and eighth floors of the Sugar Bond office building.
The company, which has eight data centres and additional offices located in five cities across the UK, has relocated its Scotland office to Sugar Bond from other premises in Leith.
Aydin Kurt-Elli, Chief Operating Officer of Pulsant commented: “Pulsant was attracted to Sugar Bond by both the high quality nature of the accommodation and the surrounding environment within the wider Bonds development. Coupled with good on-site car parking and a pragmatic approach by the landlord in tailoring a financial package to the needs of Pulsant, this made Sugar Bond the obvious choice for our new office.”
Highcross’ Sugar Bond and adjoining Bonnington Bond office buildings are located close to the waterfront in Leith, less than two miles from Edinburgh city centre. Comprising around 75,000 sq ft of office space, the scheme has extensive parking, cycle and shower facilities and a full-time building manager located on site.
Highcross asset manager, Julia Deans, comments: “Following this latest letting, Sugar Bond is more than 60% occupied. We are continuing to offer extremely competitive deals at the building, which represent excellent value for money for such a distinctive and well-specified building.”
Letting agents for Sugar Bond are Montagu Evans, CWPC and Ryden. Mike Irvine of Montagu Evans’ Edinburgh office adds: “The ability to attract a high calibre occupier of the nature of Pulsant, provides further testament to the quality of the office space on offer at the Bonds. The numerous recent lettings also reflect the very competitive terms on offer and Highcross’ flexibility in developing leasing deals to suit the needs of occupiers.”
