The building which is being developed to the BREEAM Very Good specification is expected to be completed and available for occupation by November this year.
In total 580,000 sq ft of industrial, logistics and manufacturing space is being built at Horizon 38 in four phases – funded by BP Pension Fund. Later phases are expected to be complete in 2018.
Mike Forster, iSec Development Director, said “In the face of the continued shortage of warehouse and logistics floorspace throughout Bristol coupled with strong levels of interest and demand for industrial units in the 100 to 120,000 sq.ft range we believe the decision to develop the 115,000 sq ft unit will be a wise one.
The Filton area in particular is seeing a rapid transformation and Horizon 38 sits in ideal location for business in a thriving mixed-use community, within an enterprise area only 3 miles from Bristol city centre and less than 2 miles from the M5”.
Horizon 38 is a landmark strategic development site, directing fronting onto the A38 in Filton near the former Filton airfield, Airbus and Rolls-Royce Engines manufacturing plants. It sits within the Filton Enterprise Area; the largest and most significant regeneration and inward investment project in the south west and just 3 miles from Bristol city centre and less than 2 miles from the M5.
