Progressive commercial property agency Adapt Commercial Property has unveiled its new Glasgow studio at the vibrant McLellan Works on Sauchiehall Street.  The exciting move marks the agency’s first anniversary after its foundation in June 2023 by Fergus Maclennan, formerly a Partner and Head of Glasgow Business Space Agency at global real estate firm Cushman & Wakefield.

Adapt Commercial Property takes pride in providing dynamic and strategic advice to landlords, investors and occupier clients focused on innovation, quality and, most importantly, the end user.  Adapt showcases and markets the best quality space for landlord clients with a wide range of prestigious leasing and sales instructions. The agency also represents a wide range of occupier clients, realigning their occupational strategies to secure spaces fit for the future.

The opportunity to secure space at McLellan Works, a project in which Maclennan advised developer client Bywater Properties, provided the perfect collaboration to showcase the Adapt brand and ethos. Thrilled, Maclennan stated: “McLellan Works is a development which I have advised on from the initial acquisition and concept design to project delivery and leasing. I am proud of the development. The building has been transformed with meticulous detail and passion to provide innovative future workspace to support a vibrant and entrepreneurial culture that goes beyond work. It perfectly aligns with our ethos at Adapt.”

Maclennan added, “Workplace trends have changed rapidly with the global pandemic resetting how we live, work and do business. The commercial property market has been in a state of flux, but the opportunity to transform and adapt excites us. Both landlords and occupiers now recognise the importance of creating the right workplace environment to recruit and retain the best talent with a strong focus on quality. McLellan Works has been a great example of this, a transformational office development on Sauchiehall Street which, despite completion during the pandemic, leased up quicker than any other property in the City with 32 lettings in 3 years and more in the pipeline.”

"Adapt Commercial Property was set up to assist businesses through these daunting workplace decisions and to support clients in finding the right solution. At its core, Adapt understands commercial property with progressive thinking and attention to detail for our clients' requirements. Buildings should be designed creatively with flexible spaces to make the workplace compelling and functional. We are thrilled to open our new creative studio, which provides the perfect base to collaborate and advise our clients in this ever-evolving commercial market."

Dan Mead, Head of Leasing at Bywater Properties commented “We have been working with Fergus and Adapt Commercial Property since the start of our ownership and refurbishment of McLellan Works and he has been a strong and vociferous supporter of the building throughout the project. It is fantastic to be a part of the next stage of Adapt’s development. It speaks volumes of the success of McLellan Works, and the regeneration of the western side of the city, that one of our leasing team has chosen this location to grow their business from. If our building is good enough for the property advisors then we must be doing something right!”
