THE £2 million Falkirk Business Hub has been named as a Scottish Property Awards 2014 finalist, in the ‘Town Centre Regeneration Project of the Year’ category.
The prestige awards celebrate the best new commercial and public building projects across Scotland over a total of 12 categories.
Bellair managing director, Alistair Campbell, who has funded the project, said: “It is a great achievement for us to be selected as a finalist.
“Being short-listed in these prestigious awards highlights the scale of the project and recognises that The Falkirk Business Hub is unlike conventional business centres because we’re providing facilities and services to support networking.
“It is also a tribute to its positive role in transforming the Town Centre.”
The Hub has been designed to cost-effectively meet the specific space needs of a wide range of businesses and Bellair is already looking at ways to roll out its visionary ‘easy in, easy out’ model of simplified lease agreements throughout Scotland while playing continuing to play its part in Falkirk’s regeneration.
On the town centre site of the former General Post Office, The Hub is a four-storey, 27,000 square-foot, fully-managed business centre community where tenants can pay to work for a matter of hours or for 20 years or more, depending on individual needs.
In addition to a target of almost 50 businesses being based at The Hub, there is a Coffee House, Co-working Lounge, a Wellness Centre and a variety of meeting rooms all open to the general public.
The Hub is only a few minutes’ walk from the town’s mainline railway station and is within easy walking distance of the Bus Station. Extensive public parking is available immediately opposite with longer term parking available close-by.
The Scottish Property Awards’ winners will be announced at an event in February next year.
