Linkcity strikes the right note with The Anvil
Property development company Linkcity, formerly known as Bouygues Development, has secured outline planning consent for The Anvil, a new landmark office development in Bristol’s Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone.
The building on Avon Street, just moments from Temple Meads railway station, will provide 83,223 sq ft of grade A office accommodation over seven floors.
Linkcity expects to apply for detailed planning permission in early 2017, allowing prospective occupiers to customise spaces to suit their demands. It hopes to begin building work in the second half of 2017, with a view to completion in the first half of 2019.
Charles Parry, Senior Development Officer at Linkcity, said “We are delighted to have secured planning consent for this new development which, we believe, will set a new benchmark for quality in the central Bristol office market. Occupiers now have certainty of delivery and the opportunity to influence the detailed design and specification.
The scheme will provide a major boost to Bristol’s office market, following a strong level of take-up since the start of the year.
Joint letting agents Alder King and Cushman & Wakefield are marketing the property as a whole or on a floor by floor basis, meaning requirements from 13,760 sq ft upwards can be accommodated.
The Anvil places staff wellbeing at the heart of its design. It incorporates a raft of community and sustainability features, a commanding entrance set within a new pocket park, and landscaped roof terraces on the top two floors offering panoramic views of the city skyline.
Sustainable features include significant reductions in CO2 emissions, improved indoor air quality, low internal noise levels and onsite renewable energy generation.
The property is extremely well-connected to Bristol’s road and transport hubs and includes a secure 25 space car park with electric charge points and 105 cycle spaces with locker storage and shower and change facilities at basement level.
Parry continued: “Linkcity and Bouygues UK have a strong track record in Bristol, having constructed several of the city’s most iconic office buildings including The Paragon on Victoria Street and Aardman Animations’ award-winning studio. All our schemes are designed to create a better environment and an improved quality of life for the communities that live, work or spend time in them and we look forward to delivering this with The Anvil.”
