Nottingham Developer Bildurn has unveiled plans for a new 50,000 sq ft office development in Nottingham, close to the rail station.
Designed by Franklin Ellis Architects, 11 Station Street will provide flexible Grade A office space on open plan floor plates of nearly 10,000 sq ft.
The building will feature a double height foyer, roof garden, basement parking and cycle storage, electric car charging points and will face a new pedestrianised area.
Situated close to the entrance to Nottingham’s train station, which has recently undergone a multimillion pound facelift, 11 Station Street is at the heart of the city’s tram network in the Southside area – a prime location for businesses seeking sleek transport connections throughout the UK.
Bildurn 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 representing the scheme, in a market where high-quality office space is in scarce supply. Lead Director Matthew Smith says: “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. 11 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.”
Following a previous development brief, a detailed planning application is expected later this year before building work commences.
Privately owned and based in Nottingham, Bildurn has experience in developing commercial and mixed-use schemes, both new build and refurbishment, for a range of occupiers. Notable Bildurn schemes in the city include The Pod, Lace Market Square and 1-9 Bridlesmith Gate.
