Construction has started on new Grade A workspace in Bristol’s Temple Quarter.

The £140 million scheme is located in Temple Quarter, fronting Avon Street and Oxford Street, will see the construction of an eight-storey 212,000 sq ft flexible workspace that can be configured for a range of tenancies.

The development is funded by a joint venture between Candour and EPISO 5, with work now underway on-site.

The development includes a ground floor café, fitness and wellness facilities and landscaped terraces, and over 290 bike spaces, with views overlooking Bristol.

Wates Construction, who recently completed the adjacent 3 Glass Wharf, has been appointed to deliver the scheme.

Candour co-founder Toby Pentecost said: “Working in partnership with Tristan Capital Partners and supported by Apollo, we are committed to setting an example in sustainable development and delivering outstanding workspace for Bristol City Centre. We are already seeing significant interest from occupiers.”

Alec Jackman, regional director for Wates in South West England, said: “We are delighted to be delivering another landmark building in Bristol’s rapidly growing Temple Quarter, helping to further transform the local area.”

Completion of the development is expected for 2023.
