While many of us are currently working from home and many aspects of society are closed, construction work in Bristol has been continuing at pace with several developments on track to complete within the next three years. Please read on for an overview of the anticipated schemes:

The first which is due to complete in February 2021 is the 92,000 sq ft office building, The Distillery on Avon Street. It will be part of the Glassfields development with a 200 bed Leonardo Hotel due to open in March 2021. For more on The Distillery please click here. For more on Glassfields please click here.

Also due in 2021 is the full renovation of the beautiful and historic Generator Building. This Grade 2 listed building used to power Bristol’s electric tram system until 1941 and will be given a new lease of life as a co-working space.

The One Portwall Square development by Nord on Portwall Lane is due to complete late in 2021. This new-build, six storey office will comprise 33,750 sq ft of commercial space fronted by a newly created landscaped pocket square adding additional seating and green space to the area.

Looking further ahead, work is progressing at pace on Cubex’s Halo development on Counterslip as well as on the Assembly office site alongside Temple Way and the Soapworks mixed-use development on Broad Plain. In December 2020 work commenced on one of the South West’s largest speculative office developments, EQ on Victoria Street. This 200,000 sq ft building will be able to accommodate over 2,000 people and is set to include a ground floor café which will be open to the public.

Finally for this update, in July 2020 developers Candour received approval for their amended planning application for 4 Glass Wharf in Temple Quay. This office development will include 200,000 sq ft of office space and a ground floor café.
