Fast growing serviced office operator expands in Bristol

Serviced office operator, Desklodge, has almost doubled their Bristol operation following the acquisition of further offices on the fourth floor, providing an additional 10,789 sq 1 Temple Way, just 12 months from originally opening.

Desklodge, who also have a centre in Hemel Hempstead, opened their Bristol operation in August last year when they occupied the entire 5th floor of the former Bristol Evening Post building located in the heart of Bristol’s city centre, close To Bristol Temple Meads mainline railway station and City’s Cabot Circus Shopping Centre.  The aim of the centre was to provide a new, cutting-edge, flexible co-working arrangement set in an attractive working environment with its own unique innovative design and earlier this year the centre was named one of the ‘15 Coolest offices in the World’. The company has also been shortlisted for ‘co-working space of the year’.

Following the centre’s success, the decision was taken earlier this year to also acquire the available fourth floor suite and now the operation will run on two consecutive floors within the building.

Desklodge has acquired the further floor on a new 10 year lease.

This is the last floor to be let in the building and so 1 Temple Way is now fully let and other occupiers include Amey Rail, Healthcare Financial Management Association, Local World, Skills for Health and Simpson Millar

Natalie Bennett of letting agents, Hartnell Taylor Cook LLP said: “1 Temple Way is a well-known landmark office building located in the centre of the city. The refurbished offices provide good quality open plan space and we are delighted a company of Desklodge’s reputation has been able to expand their operations so quickly and easily without having to move premises. The office market in the city is tightening especially for good quality second hand space offering over 10,000 sq ft and having Desklodge in the city is a major coup.”
