Award winning Bristol developer Cubex has appointed Lambert Smith Hampton and Knight Frank to market Halo, a brand new office building that will form part of the next phase of award-winning Finzels Reach, one of the city’s most successful regeneration projects.

Subject to planning approval, the new Grade A, 116,000 sq ft office building is being built speculatively, with an expected completion date of mid-2021.  It will cater to around 1500 staff and will be created alongside 300 new homes for the rental market.

Inside, Halo will offer ‘smart’ offices with cutting-edge technological and sustainable features including highly efficient LED lighting, roof-top mounted photovoltaic panels, a glazed façade to maximise views and a drone landing pad. A unique corkscrew-like staircase will rise up through a glass atrium to a rooftop terrace.

The building is expected to attract leading businesses to this already thriving business hub, with Channel 4 already announcing its decision to locate its Bristol Creative Hub at Finzels Reach’s historic Fermentation Buildings, alongside the likes of Historic England and English Heritage.

Peter Musgrove, head of Bristol office, said: “We are very excited to be working with Cubex on this landmark development for Bristol.” 

"The delivery of this type of stand-out workspace is crucial to ensure that the city’s existing employers are supported with their growth plans, new players are attracted into the city, and talent is retained. We are confident that this superb space will be highly attractive to a variety of occupiers.”

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.”
