Real estate investor AXA Investment Managers anddeveloper Bell Hammer are about to start work on the initial phase of the 27,000sq m mixed-use Assembly Bristol regeneration project.
Constructed by main contractor Galliford Try, completion of Building A, which comprises 18,000sq m across 11 storeys, is due in 2020. The scheme is located with Temple Quarter and within easy reach of Temple Meads train station.
The innovative building, designed by AHMM, comprises multiple uses, and a range of flexible office spaces designed for both local and global businesses. It includes assets such as natural light and high ceilings, outside space on every floor, opening windows, a managed and shared roof terrace and end-of-trip cycle facilities. It will be completed at the same time as a major new waterfront public space.
Property consultancy firm JLL has predicted more than 2,000 new build-to-rent apartments could be created in Bristol by 2021.
