PS21 Exterior QBE Insurance Robert Hitchins

Gloucestershire developer Robert Hitchins has let the final office suite at recently-refurbished PS21 in Bristol to QBE Insurance Group.

QBE, one of the world’s top insurers and reinsurers who provide cover in more than 140 countries, have taken a lease on 2,283 sq ft on the second floor of the four-storey office building in Prince Street.

Senior Asset and Development Manager at Robert Hitchins, John Jones, welcomed QBE to PS21 which was acquired from the former TSB and extensively refurbished to provide 15,278 sq ft of quality office space.

“We’re extremely happy with the property and pleased to welcome another quality tenant,” he said. “The acquisition gave us a chance to create modern offices with a contemporary feel and excellent facilities in a great location close to Queen Square.”

The agents were Colliers International and Knight Frank.

Director James Preece from Colliers International said: “We are delighted to have fully let PS21 on behalf of Robert Hitchins Ltd. As well as providing quality office space, the building is ideally located between Harbourside and Queen Square so that occupiers are close to a multitude of amenities.

“PS21 has performed very well for a forward-thinking landlord who has continually upgraded the space since the refurbishment.”

Other tenants at PS21 include Baltimore Consulting, Shintoa Corporation, Rapleys, Blue Arrow, Thorn Baker Group, Ricardo and Concert Consulting.
