The Grade A office building will be situated on Victoria Street, the axis of the Bristol business community. Positioned equidistant from Temple Meads Station and the acclaimed shopping experience of Cabot Circus just over the river, Victoria Street is widely regarded as the arterial route for business into the city.
At a launch event for the scheme, attended by 20 of the city’s leading office agents, Simon Blair of London and County stated: “Victoria Central will be one of the most iconic office buildings in Bristol. Working closely with the council and the local conservation group, Redcliff e Futures, we have designed a building which is both striking and in keeping with the area whilst being a practical space for modern business.
“At present there is a lack of supply of grade A space in the city centre and a limited development pipeline. A combination of this and our optimism that the market will begin to improve over the next 12 – 18 months, has given us the confidence to announce the building to the market in order to capitalise on some of the speculative enquiries which will begin to come through.”
DTZ and Burston Cook have been instructed as joint disposal agents for the scheme.
Andy Smith of DTZ commented: “The accommodation will provide 88,000 sq ft of floor space with retail and restaurants on the ground floor and 8 upper floors of offices providing far reaching views across the city. The location of the building means it will be highly prominent and offers a real opportunity for a headquarters facility in the city centre.”
Jayne Rixon of Burston Cook added: “In keeping with businesses drive to a greener agenda the building has been designed with a sustainability rating of BREEAM ‘Excellent’. The space will provide a first class working environment with large open plan floor plates, air conditioning, raised floors and floor to ceiling glazing.”
The building is offered on both a freehold and leasehold basis. Further information is available from the joint agents DTZ and Burston Cook.
