at Atlantic Quay and is not only the tallest building in the
Broomielaw, but also the largest at over 110,000sq ft. The ground
floor includes 4,700 sq ft of retail and leisure space - a first

become the first tenant and will occupy the top four floors,
covering more than 34,600sq ft. Strathclyde Pension Fund will
