Halo, a new contemporary office building is planned as part of Cubex’s redevelopment of the former headquarters site of Avon Fire and Rescue in Bristol city centre.

Cubex is seeking planning consent to create 100,000 sq ft of office space together with over 300 homes for the rental market. Subject to planning permission, this new Grade ‘A’ HQ office building will be built speculatively with an expected completion date of mid 2021.

Design by local architects, The Bush Consultancy who have worked extensively at Finzels Reach, Halo will feature a unique corkscrew staircase rising up through a glass atrium to a rooftop terrace. Halo will be designed for either a single occupier or a range of occupiers to let on a floor by floor basis.

It will build on the excellent sustainability credentials of Aurora at Finzels Reach, which completed in 2018 and was the first building outside London to achieve a BREEAM Outstanding rating under the toughest new rating scheme. It also achieved a Wired score Platinum.

On behalf of Palmer Capital Development Fund IV UK (PCDFIV), a programmatic venture between CBRE GIP and Fiera Real Estate’s UK division (previously known as Palmer Capital), Bristol developer Cubex purchased the fire station site in 2018.
