Shepherd goes the whole HOG to offer landmark retail outlet in Charing Cross, Glasgow to let

Shepherd Chartered Surveyors is going the whole HOG to offer a landmark retail outlet in Charing Cross Glasgow, one of the city’s prime retail, licensed and leisure centres, to let.


The former Harley Davidson unit on North Street at Charing Cross has become something of a landmark over the last 17 years. As well as providing a prominent retail outlet for the iconic brand, the extensive basement floor provided a home for the Harley offices and Harley Owners’ Group (HOG) Cafe. Many passing motorists and pedestrians will also have noted the pitched pavement gazebos on warmer summer evenings.

However, Sandy Lightbody (Head of Agency – Glasgow), said: “The really unique thing about this property is that it provides superb retail/studio space fronting onto Glasgow’s busiest motorway stretch, but with a large rear workshop/industrial unit facing onto Dorset Street, with full loading capacity for HGV/articulated lorries.

“Furthermore, a flue is attached to the back wall of the building and a change of use to restaurant/hot food/licensed use would be looked upon favourably by the local Planning Authority.”

Overlooking the M8 motorway and benefitting from a high level of passing traffic, the 7,215 sq ft property extends over ground and basement levels and occupies a prominent location on the west side of North Street between its junctions with St Vincent Street and Kent Road.

Adjacent occupiers comprise an attractive mix of national multiple retailers and licensed uses. And plans to form an M8 roof park, which will have a beneficial effect, on the immediate Charing Cross area, have been approved.

Public transport communications are excellent, with numerous bus routes passing within close proximity. Charing Cross and Anderston mainline railway stations are situated nearby. The surrounding area has recently witnessed a spate of high quality, Grade A office developments; including St Vincent Plaza and the Scottish Power HQ building. A number of high quality hotels, including The Hilton and The Marriott, are also situated nearby.

“Situated in a dynamic area that has seen enormous development in recent years, this unique property offers many possibilities. Consequently, we anticipate a high level of interest in this rare opportunity.”

Interested parties should contact the sole letting agent on tel 0141 331 2807.
