With Bristol’s office-based employment market growing more quickly than the UK average, the demand for high quality commercial space is outstripping supply. The strong growth especially in the tech and creative industries means a high number of companies want unique and exciting premises that suit their culture and brand. One large, stylish studio-style office is now available overlooking the floating harbour at our prestigious Huller & Cheese development in Bristol City Centre, ideal for organisations that want design-led business space in a central location.
Huller & Cheese is the conversion of two former industrial warehouses by our Generator South West division, two of the last original buildings on the floating harbour to be renovated. With the development’s luxurious apartments and penthouses now complete, the two commercial units on the lower ground floor have been launched to the market and interest from potential occupiers is strong.
The latest forecasts from Oxford Economics predict that office based employment in Bristol will grow by 6.5% over the next five years, outpacing the UK average of 5%. And with Bristol named the UK’s ‘smartest city’ in the Huawei UK Smart Cities Index, it is clear that it is a magnet for forward-looking, innovative businesses. Consequently the office market in Bristol is buoyant and active, with units the size of those at Huller & Cheese in central locations in particular demand.
Charlie Kershaw from commercial property agents Burston Cook, who are retained to market the opportunity, comments: “The office space at Huller & Cheese provides interesting, unique and flexible accommodation with an amazing waterside outlook in the heart of the city Centre. We have had a great deal of interest in the space from both investors and businesses looking to owner occupy. The units provide the chance for them to secure an office with its own front door in an excellent position, and the opportunity to put their own stamp on the property.”
The space available is arranged over the lower ground floor of Huller & Cheese. The space has sweeping views of the floating harbour and can be made available either individually or as two self-contained office suites with their own self-contained access and are provided in shell condition ready for fit out.
The floating harbour has become one of the city centre’s most vibrant and exciting areas and an attractive location for businesses with its huge range of cafes, bars, restaurants, nightlife and galleries. The location of Huller & Cheese could not be more convenient, situated in close walking distance of Temple Meads station, along with the amenities of St Nicholas Market, Broadmead and Cabot Circus.
The area is set to be regenerated further as Redcliffe Village is a walk away offering more homes and retail space.
From Temple Meads, trains to Cardiff take 43 minutes and direct services to London Paddington take 98 minutes. A new high-speed rail service will cut the journey from Bristol to Paddington by 22 minutes from 2018.
The two offices at Huller & Cheese are offered for sale by way of a new long lease, with guide prices of £250,000 and £260,000. For further information contact sole agents, Burston Cook on 0117 934 9977 or email Charlie@burstoncook.co.uk
