Developers ready to start work on £35 million Bristol office block scheme | 21 March 2013
A £35 million office block scheme in Bristol will definitely go ahead this year.
Developers have confirmed that they are ready to re-launch the scheme, following a four-year delay.
The scheme includes the development of a new eight-storey office block alongside Burges Salmon headquarters in the Temple Quarter region. The building will be called Two Glass Wharf.
In an interview with southwestbusiness.co.uk, project developer Rorie Henderson predicted that it would be the first of many projects in the area.
He said: “Tenants at Two Glass Wharf will benefit from a first class location in the heart of Bristol, a waterfront setting and all the infrastructure and financial advantages of being located within the Enterprise Zone. We have acquired three adjacent sites in Temple Quay over the last two years and this is the first phase of our development plans.”
Work on the building is expected to start in June, with a completion target of October 2014 having already been set.
According to theconstructionindex.com, the scheme will also see 47,000 square feet of office space being built next to the Bristol Bridge. The £5.65 million building at One Victoria Street is expected to meet BREEAM’s ‘Excellent’ energy efficiency standards. It is due to be completed this autumn.
