Turning Point Scotland secures space in Leith’s Dock Place

Social care charity takes 3,200 sq ft on a 10-year lease

Allied Surveyors Scotland is today announcing the latest letting in a string of office deals in Leith.

3,200 sq ft has been let to Turning Point Scotland who have snapped up the whole of the second floor at 6 Dock Place at Commercial Quay.

The Glasgow-based social care provider has taken a 10-year lease at an undisclosed rent.

They join existing tenants BLS International, a global provider of VISA application services who took a 1,400 sq ft suite on the first-floor last year, and Edinburgh Business Consultancy.

The letting leaves 4,200 sq ft remaining on the third floor and mezzanine level of the former bonded warehouse.

“Dock Place benefits from its own car park, close proximity to the Shore’s cafes, bars and restaurants and a tram stop. This combined with the budget nature of the accommodation is appealing to occupiers,” commented Allied Surveyors Scotland’s director of commercial agency, Iain Mercer.

Turning Point Scotland’s Head of Homelessness and Prevention services, Nicky Miller, said: “The Edinburgh Visiting Support service assists people who are currently or at risk of experiencing homelessness, or who have experienced homelessness across the North-East and South-East of Edinburgh.

“The Turning Point Scotland service provides both visiting housing support and preventative support; helping people to transition into temporary accommodation, move on to permanent accommodation and fosters tenancy sustainment skills.

“Allied Surveyors Scotland has provided us with a space that is versatile, high quality and with a great deal of natural light to maintain staff wellbeing.

“As a charity, the rate negotiated ensures we can provide a high-quality space for staff to support vulnerable people who are at risk of or experiencing Homelessness.”

Allied Surveyors represented the landlord in the transaction whilst the tenant was unrepresented. This latest transaction takes Allied Surveyors’ deal haul in Leith to over 5,000 sq ft in the last three months having also let 800 sq ft at 2 Commercial Street to a creative writing business, 600 sq ft to Limetree Group at La Belle Esperance – a floating barge office – and 800 sq ft to Wraithwriters at 100b Constitution Street.

“With office space in Edinburgh city centre in short supply, Leith’s office market gives occupiers a viable alternative with the benefit of excellent connectivity and staff amenities.”
