Property agents have been appointed to market a new landmark smart office building at Finzels Reach, as part of the second phase of the waterfront quarter at the heart of Bristol.

Finzels Reach developer Cubex has announced property agents Lambert Smith Hampton and Knight Frank will market Grade A office building Halo.

The office development will be built speculatively subject to planning approval, before tenants have been secured, on the site of the former Avon Fire & Rescue.

Halo will be based across the road from the first phase of Finzels Reach, and is due to be completed in mid-2021 next to more than 300 new homes for the rental market.

The building will offer smart offices with technological and sustainable features including LED lighting, a drone landing pad and roof-top mounted photovoltaic panels.

The historic waterside location of Finzels Reach will bring a mixture of homes including build-to-rent properties, offices, a hotel and leisure facilities to the area.

Channel 4 officially announced its decision to locate its Bristol Creative Hub at Finzels Reach’s historic Fermentation Buildings in June, moving close to Historic England and English Heritage.

Peter Walford, director at Cubex, said: “Appointing the agents for Halo is a key milestone in the next phase of this major regeneration project for Bristol.

“Against a backdrop of an acute shortage of high quality office space in Bristol, Halo will deliver much-needed ‘smart’, sustainable workspace. The delivery of stand-out workspace is crucial to ensure Bristol’s existing employers are supported with their growth plans, new players are attracted into the city, and talent is retained.”
