AN Art Deco cinema in Glasgow that staged concerts by The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix and The Rolling Stones has been relaunched as a commercial property.

The building in Renfield Street, which was originally opened by the Paramount Cinema chain in 1934 and later became the Odeon, has been transformed into a four-storey office block.

It follows an extensive refurbishment of the category B listed building, led by Ryder Architecture.

And it brings one of the city’s longest renovation sagas to a close, with the building having been vacant since Odeon closed its doors in 2006.

Now called The Reel House, the new-look property includes an extensive third-floor balcony. Many original features are understood to have been retained throughout the building, which now offers 14,000 square feet of flexible, open-plan workspace, with a rental value of £22.50 per sq ft.

Carrick Properties acquired the building in 2016.

The building has long been a big name in the world of Glasgow entertainment. It attracted the Beatles in October 1963, the Rolling Stones in June 1965, Jimi Hendrix in April 1967, and other stars to have played there included Roy Orbison, Dusty Springfield and Sir Cliff Richard.

Sarah Addis, at estate agent Knight Frank, which will let the building alongside JLL, said: “The Reel House is steeped in history and remains as iconic as ever.

“The renovation has created a stylish, contemporary and flexible workspace. Given the quality of the refurbishment, its central position, and the lack of Grade A office accommodation of its kind currently available in Glasgow, we anticipate occupiers will be captivated by the space.

“In recent years the surrounding area has undergone substantial regeneration, with various new office, retail and food and drink developments successfully launching.”

JLL’s Claire Watson expects the building to appeal to firms seeking modern offices ranging from 2,000 to 14,000 sq ft.
