Refurbished office space launched at One Cathedral Square

The only grade A office building to be delivered to the Bristol office market this year has been launched. One Cathedral Square will deliver 58,575 sq ft of space over four floors in the city centre.

Agents Cushman & Wakefield and LSH are marketing the space on behalf of Castleforge Partners.

A £7.2million refurbishment was designed by Shoreditch-based architect, Gpad which has created a new façade to the building and extended the front entrance to increase the internal floor area. The building also has a ‘living wall’, the largest of its kind in Bristol.

Anthony Maxwell Jones of the owners Castleforge said: “We are delighted with how the team have produced a tremendous product in a very quick timescale. We challenged them to produce something different for Bristol and we truly believe they have done this.”

Andy Heath, Partner and Head of Office agency at Cushman & Wakefield in Bristol, said: “We are delighted to launch One Cathedral Square to the market. The office accommodation offers some of the best space in the city, is refreshing and striking in its style and centrally located.”

Peter Musgrove of LSH added: “Grade A availability in Bristol city centre is currently at its lowest ever total and the scheme will provide a much needed boost of supply for the city centre office market.”

Situated on the historic College Green, the building was constructed in 1987 by Vaux Properties in conjunction with a substantial refurbishment of the neighbouring Marriott Hotel. Direct Line acquired the building in 1989 and occupied it until early 2015 when it was purchased by ADIA and eventually sold to Castleforge in December 2015.
