Bath’s first major office build for two decades proposed

Posted on by

A PLANNING application for the first major office development in the city of Bath for twenty years has been submitted to the local council.

Four storey number 1 Pinesgate would create 113,000 sq ft of flexible Grade A office space close to Bath railway station.

Architects Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios have come up with the designs for the new office block has basement parking for 84 cars.

Richard Kidd, Director of Office Agency at property adviser GVA, appointed as joint agents with Hartnell Taylor Cook LLP for the Pinesgate development, commented:.

“Bath has had no significant office development for over two decades and the resultant lack of Grade A space led to a number of Bath companies relocating to Bristol and beyond in order to secure suitable office premises as they grow their businesses. In the meantime, occupiers from further afield, attracted by Bath’s unrivalled lifestyle and its highly educated labour pool, have nevertheless had to look elsewhere.

“That is about to change. Number 1 Pinesgate offers a unique opportunity for occupiers to take a fresh look at Bath and to take advantage of the city’s phenomenal cultural, sporting and professional facilities. The city is currently only 90 minutes from central London, with that journey time set to be reduced further once the electrification of the main South West railway line in 2018.”

A decision on the proposal is expected to be made by Bath & North East Somerset Council in September.
