Full occupancy secured in a flash at Castlebrae Business Centre

Posted: 3rd October 2017

Castlebrae Business CentreCastlebrae Business Centre in Craigmillar in Edinburgh has reached 100% occupancy after Ryden signed up Odos Imaging for the remaining 977 sq ft on behalf of client Cre8te Opportunities Limited.

Odos Imaging specialises in advanced cameras for the industrial and scientific centre and has taken units 1-3 at a rent of £12 per sq ft.

41 companies are now located at the business centre with an average lease length of five-years. Existing occupiers include Share Scotland, Craigmillar Pet Supplies and Print Vision.

Reaching fully let status adds to what has already been a successful year for Castlebrae Business Centre as it won ‘Community Development of the Year’ at the 2017 Scottish Property Awards. The accolade was in recognition of the £2.1 million invested to transform the Art-Deco category B listed former school into a thriving modern business centre providing the local community with much-needed business space.

Finlay Miller, letting agent at Ryden, commented: “The regeneration of Castlebrae Business Centre was a major boost for the Craigmillar area and it is great to see it now fully occupied with a diverse tenant mix.”

Sharron Stanton, Chief Executive Cre8te, said: “Since the refurbishment occupancy levels has continued to rise and there is a great mix of businesses within the Business Centre. Cre8te also offer use of the ample car parking for TV/Film productions. The most recent productions being Outlander and Trainspotting 2.”
