A rooftop garden and an underground car park with charging points, for electric cars, are just two of the features that will appear in Bildurn’s state-of-the-art offices at 11 Station Street in Nottingham, subject to approval.

Bildurn have plans for the 50,000 square feet office space at the site and hope to produce grade A offices facing the new pedestrianised area on Station Street – complete with its own secure underground parking and cycle storage area, 24-hour access and electric car charging points.

A rooftop garden will also provide office staff with a terrace overlooking the city.

Managing director Sean Akins says: “This development will take office space in Nottingham to a new stage.

“Location will of course be a major pull for businesses, in that these offices are literally on the doorstep of Nottingham train station and just minutes’ walk from the city centre – but the quality of the building itself will also be a significant attraction.

“With a double height foyer, lots of natural light, flexibility for businesses to use the space they choose formally or informally and impressive ‘green’ credentials, this development really will stand out to those looking to Nottingham as a place to expand and grow their businesses.”

Leading property advisor JLL is working Bildurn to develop the plans.

Lead director Matthew Smith said: “11 Station Street is great news for Nottingham. We anticipate city centre office take up will increase over 2017, highlighting the increasing demand for high quality city centre offices.

“We have long said we need to invest in the city’s core to attract the footloose requirements from large corporates looking to relocate out of the capital to more cost-effective regional centres.

“Eleven Station Street couldn’t be better placed in terms of design and location, offering excellent connectivity and access to amenities which is essential for helping occupiers retain and attract top talent.”

Mr Akins added: “The development will continue the major regeneration, renewal and investment that has and will continue to take place around the station area.

“It is set to be another gem in Nottingham’s crown and we look forward to seeing which businesses it attracts.”

Bildurn has previously developed offices as part of a building called The Pod, located by the Lace Market tram stop.
