A world-heritage site with world-class businesses.

With new development opportunities opening up along the river, and a range of innovative businesses based in the city and surrounding areas, Bath and North East Somerset is a key region for investment.

Bath Quays South

Bath Quays South

New Grade A and contemporary workspace in the heart of Bath. Prominently positioned on the riverfront, Bath Quays South is part of the new business district in Bath. It provides the city with a new riverside space for business, offering a total of circa 90,000sq ft of office accommodation in the current programme, set against the new waterside park. The main focus of Bath Quays South is the creation of spaces for local companies to move and expand within Bath; an outcome which is already being successfully delivered.

Development areas

No.1 Bath Quays is the flagship building within the Bath Quays South development. The building is complete and provides 44,470sq ft of ‘grade a’ office accommodation.

Given the acute need for business space in the city, No.1 Bath Quays represents a fantastic opportunity for our scale-up companies to take a leap forward in their growth journey. This project is being actively marketed by Knight Frank.

The prestigious energy efficient office building has been designed to EPC ‘A’ rating and includes 100 dedicated cycle spaces, shower facilities changing and drying rooms and electric vehicle charging.

The building is suitable for single occupation or can be easily adapted to a number of potential occupiers. Set over five floors, the top four floors range in size from 9,445sq ft to 11,298sq ft. There are two smaller units on the ground floor that total 2,119sq ft in size that can be independently accessed.

Redevelopment of the historic Newark Works building will provide a 40,000sq ft vibrant creative campus, where our business community can meet, collaborate and grow. This former industrial building will be sensitively brought back to life, and from Summer 2022 will offer a range of characterful studio and office units from 122sq ft to 5,020sq ft. The studio and office units are specifically aimed at our burgeoning creative industries sector and will be a great location for start-ups and micro-businesses.

Newark Works will also benefit from an on-site café bar, breakout and meeting spaces. There are opportunities for other uses in the building, such as health, fitness and the arts.

Bath Quays will be connected to  a wider active travel network in Bath by a new pedestrian and cycling bridge. The bridge will allow workers and residents of Bath Quays to access the city centre via the new waterside park, with the city's retail offer and main bus and rail stations around 5 minutes walk away.

One of the main focuses for Bath Quays North will be the creation of spaces supporting inward investment. The offices will offer a range of large, open-plan floorplates alongside the leisure, food and beverage and residential accommodation, and a business hotel.
