Major £1.5m refurbishment capitalising on fast improving office location, says Hartnell Taylor Cook

A modern Bristol city centre office building close to historic Queen’s Square is undergoing an extensive refurbishment programme.

The property, 25 King Street, is located between Queen Square and the city centre over looking the recently constructed north west extension of Queen Square.

The six-storey building, which offers some 18,000 sq ft of space either as a whole or on a floor by floor basis, has had £1.5m invested in the recent refurbishment.

Natalie Bennett, associate director in Hartnell Taylor Cook’s office agency team, said: “The fact that even in these difficult economic times a business is prepared to invest in such an extensive office refurbishment, speaks volumes about the attraction of this rapidly developing location.”

Richard Kidd, director at joint agents GVA, said: “We expect the project to be completed by early September and we are already experiencing strong interest in the space even at this early stage.”

The comprehensive refurbishment work being undertaken at 25 King Street includes transforming the interior into high quality open plan office space benefiting from an energy efficiency rating of Band “C”.

“In addition the building will have a new reception, showers, cycle racks and lockers and together with basement car parking making it a very attractive proposition to potential occupiers seeking offices in this location,” added Natalie Bennett.
