Dell logs onto The Walk in Edinburgh

Global IT company Dell is to move its Edinburgh office to The Walk, Edinburgh. Dell has struck a ten-year deal worth 94,968 per annum to lease 3,500 square feet on the second floor of The Walk, St Andrew Square.

In November 2006, the company purchased IT solutions provider ACS in Rutland Street in the city's West End and has now opted to move to The Walk as it looks to grow its presence in the Scottish Capital. Dell currently employees over 800 people in its Glasgow business centre at City Park, which supports corporate customers in the public and private sector. The Glasgow operation opened in June 2005.

The agreement with The Walk owner Coal Pension Properties reflects the strong demand for top quality space in the city centre, particularly the east end.

Paula Fern, Associate Director at Jones Lang LaSalle's Edinburgh office, which along with McGregor CS acted for Coal Pension Properties, said: "This new letting continues to highlight the weight of demand in the city centre for high quality open plan suites."

Charles Quinn, Director and General Manager, Dell Scotland, comments: "Dell has serious growth ambitions in Scotland, and we aim to be the front runner to win key blue-chip new business. Our new high-quality office in Edinburgh is representative of that investment."

Dell were advised by Cushman & Wakefield.
