Development Manager, Bankfoot APAM, is delighted to announce that planning consent has been secured for 1 Friary, Temple Quay, Bristol on behalf of Britannia Invest A/S.
The scheme, designed by leading practice TP Bennett, will deliver just under 80,000 sq ft of highly sustainable, flexible workspace, including new roof terracing and an amenity offering at ground level, which represent a significant uplift on the existing gross area.
The development will involve a back-to-frame refurbishment and rooftop extension, creating high quality workspace in the heart of Bristol’s Temple Quay business district. The scheme is opposite Bristol Temple Meads railway station and is walking distance from the new £300M University of Bristol campus.
The redevelopment will be an exciting addition to the Bristol office landscape, rebranded as Quay, and will be one of a number of successful planning consents secured by Bankfoot APAM in Bristol over recent years.
As a business, Development Manager Bankfoot APAM currently have in excess of £1B of development projects under management in terms of GDV.
Chris Moore, Managing Director of Bankfoot APAM, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have secured another fantastic consent from Bristol City Council for what will be a landmark building in Bristol. The Bristol office market remains extremely buoyant, with strong demand for prime space, but tenants are quite rightly expecting more from their office accommodation – with that we expect 1 Friary to set the new mark for sustainability and wellness for office space in the city. Bankfoot APAM has a close link with the city, having developed a number of schemes here in recent years, and we are excited to continue that relationship as we deliver 1 Friary.”
