By Staff Reporter

International drugs giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) has moved into new premises in Belfast.

The company has set up on the third floor of Quay Gate House, which is owned by the McKay Group, in a letting negotiated by commercial property firm Lisney.

Quay Gate House is on Scrabo Street off the M3 flyover.

Andrew Gawley, associate director at Lisney, said: "We are delighted to secure a high-profile tenant such as GSK for our landlord The McKay Group. Quay Gate House is a landmark property in Belfast and, with its roof garden and panoramic views of the city centre, the building is unique."

As part of the deal, landlord McKay Group provided IT and furniture to GSK, which has a portfolio including respiratory drugs Relvar/Breo.

Northern Ireland business director Dino Karmiotis said: "The level of service and flexibility we have received both from the landlord and Lisney has been first class."
