One of Bristol’s most prominent central office buildings is undergoing a wholesale repositioning to provide circa 44,000 sq ft of modern open plan office space and a range of wellbeing amenities.

The eight-storey 360 Bristol, with its full height curved atrium overlooking the St James Barton roundabout, was acquired in 2019 by the prominent investment group Melburg.

In a strong sign of confidence in Bristol’s office market, they are making a targeted investment to reposition the 107,000 sq ft building and in so doing providing an as new product with a full suite of unrivalled amenities.

The refurbishment is focused on transforming the building to create light, bright, open plan floor plates with an exposed services finish. The newly refurbished accommodation will be available as a whole or on a floor by floor or wing by wing basis.

The scheme will also provide a stunning re-modelled entrance and reception area with associated break out zones.

Other market-leading amenities being provided include a café/business lounge, exceptional internet connectivity, a fully serviced gym, spa facilities, bicycle access and storage with showers, changing and drying facilities.

The refurbishment is scheduled for completion during Q4 2021.

Alder King has recently been appointed as joint letting agents on the scheme, alongside Knight Frank.

Alder King partner Simon Price said: “This is one of the largest refurbishments currently underway in Bristol, following the success already this year of other city centre office refurbishments including 10 Wapping Road, 41 Corn Street and Pivot & Mark, all of which were successful in securing lettings quickly following practical completion.

“Upgrading the vacant space and incorporating a raft of wellbeing features and facilities will bring the building right up to date and allow it to compete with some of the new Grade A space currently being built elsewhere in the city.

“Demand for city centre office space is strong with take-up levels so far this year almost equalling pre-Covid levels. Availability remains low and 360 Bristol refurbishment works are set to complete at an opportune time.”

360 Bristol is located close to the city’s central shopping area as well as the central bus and train stations. It is also within easy reach of Clifton and Stokes Croft with their popular retail and leisure facilities.
