New Bristol office park with a focus on wellness and sustainability gets the go-ahead

A new out-of-town office park that has a major focus on wellness and sustainability has been given the go-ahead.

Baylis Estates has received planning consent for Jupiter Park, a 56,000 sq ft office park, to be developed on 3-acre site adjacent to the Mall Regional Shopping Centre at Cribbs Causeway.

With 8 two-storey office buildings ranging from 2,000 – 20,000 sq ft, the development will have a focus on sustainability and wellness. It will be planned around a community hub, which will include cycle parking, a trim trail, space for gym and yoga classes, as well as an open community area. The high-quality development will deliver exceptional eco credentials, with an A rated EPC, photovoltaic panels, green roofs, and electric vehicle charging points.

“Jupiter Park will be a site with room to move, room to breathe, and a community hub at its core,” explains David Mace, managing director at Baylis Estates.

“We’ve been continuing with our plans for Jupiter Park throughout lockdown, and with planning consent now achieved, we can move forward with our vision for this exciting sustainable work environment.”

Simon Price, senior partner at Alder King, acting on behalf of Baylis Estates, is already reporting strong interest from occupiers. He says, “Marketing of Jupiter Park has just started. Its location and design benefits are already attracting significant interest from occupiers eager to relocate as we move out of lockdown. With live enquiries in the market, it’s an exciting time to be talking about a new development of this quality.

“Jupiter Park is in an exceptionally well-placed location, with established leisure and retail on its doorstep. Close to The Mall Regional Shopping Centre, and The Venue Leisure Park, at Cribbs Causeway, and from J17 of the M5, this will offer sustainable and environmental specifications like no other.”

Access to Jupiter Park is unrivalled. Just 3 minutes from J17 of the M5, it will benefit from being close to the Metro Bus terminal, and public transport links to Bristol Parkway and Patchway stations. It is also directly connected to the national cycle route.
