Pocapoc picks a place at the Hub

10 Jul 2009

Downtown Space, developer of Glasgow's newest property icon, The Hub at Pacific Quay, has announced that design agency, Pocapoc, has signed up to take space at the development.

Pocapoc will take 127 sq ft on a one-year lease at the waterfront building and will take occupation immediately. The firm will join other high-profile new tenants at The Hub - which is now more than 50% let - including the Digital Design Studio, Shed Media Scotland and Micrositez.

Completed in February 2009 and offering flexible amounts of space from 127 sq ft upwards - as well as flexible leases that will suit both larger companies and individual operators - The Hub's ethos is all about building a 'seriously creative community' at the heart of the new Digital Media Quarter on the banks of the River Clyde.

Businesses can be up and running at The Hub, which is a joint venture with Helical Bar, within just 48 hours of signing a lease. The Hub's café bar is also now open, welcoming staff from other nearby buildings and visitors to Pacific Quay, whilst the Hubsquare, a central atrium, is used to host exhibitions and events.

Ian Robertson, director of Downtown Space, commented: "Pocapoc's move to The Hub further strengthens the Hub's growing reputation as the city's focal point for the creative sector. We now have a fantastic variety of organisations based here, from TV production companies to website designers and now a design agency.

"The Hub community is all about collaboration and working together, so having new tenants with different skill sets creates further opportunities for this seriously creative community."

Sacha Mason, creative director of Pocapoc added: "Pocapoc is delighted to join the The Hub's roster of tenants. We wanted to move somewhere central to creativity and the idea of collaboration with other creatives appeals to us. The Hub is an exciting new playground for the Pocapoc team!"

Joint letting agents for The Hub are Ryden and CB Richard Ellis (Scotland). The tenant represented itself.
