Industrial Securities signs contract for major industrial and logistics development in Bristol
15 June 2015
Origin3, on behalf of MSF Filton LLP- a joint venture between MARCOL and the St Francis Group – has submitted a detailed planning application for over one million sq ft of mixed-use space in Filton, South Gloucestershire.
The 65-acre site, which sits on the A38 trunk road between Bristol and Gloucester, received outline consent in 2007 for 96,853 sq m (1,042,525 sq ft) of offices, industrial, storage and distribution space, plus hotel. This permission was later extended for a further three years in 2012.
It is hoped that work will commence on transforming the former Rolls-Royce East Works site, which is earmarked for employment, by the end of 2015.
Gareth Williams of MSF Filton LLP comments, “The delivery of this site is an important part of the economic strategy for the area and will help create a substantial number of new jobs across a range of sectors.”
The plans include 57,701 sq m (621,093 sq ft) of industrial and distribution units, 21,770 sq m (234,332 sq ft) of offices, plus a 9,258 sq m (99,653 sq ft) hotel, car dealerships and ancillary space.
Rolls-Royce moved from the East Works site to a new custom-built facility across the road in October 2008.
