A property firm has announced it will transform a former Glasgow police building into offices.

Work is already underway on The Courtyard, a brand-new refurbishment of 255 St Vincent Street.

SRE Group, which recently rebranded from Standard Real Estate Ltd, is behind the new project.

The building, which was previously used by Police Scotland, will become a 'high-quality blend' of offices and co-working spaces ranging from 350 square feet to 6500 square feet. 

Workspaces will be centred around an indoor courtyard - inspiring the name of the project - with break-out areas, meeting rooms and private booths. 

Conveniently located for working professionals, The Courtyard will sit in the midst of a number of cafes, restaurants and public transport routes. 

There are no artist images available yet, and SRE Group estimate the building to be ready in the spring of 2024. 

John Grewar, who manages letting activity for the SRE Group, said: “The Courtyard will be a fresh new offering for Glasgow, and will be inspired by interesting, creative co-working spaces from cities across the UK, meaning that we will be bringing something different to Glasgow that has a focus on the people who will actually use the space.

“Our other refurbishments across Scotland have been very well received and we are looking forward to bringing a new and refreshed workplace to the city.”

The move comes after the success of recent high-profile city centre projects undertaken by SRE Group such as 10 Bothwell Street.

We previously reported that the building had welcomed two new tenants, Digital agency Everyone and market research agency Progressive Partnership.

The building's 'Cat A' third floor was refurbished and the reception area was given a fresh new look as part of a wider plan to create a vibrant, fully connected 'walk-in' space with breakout areas and meeting rooms. 

Other businesses based in the building include Ossian Wind Farm, DM Hall, Begbies Traynor, and wine and negroni bar Malo.
