Muse Developments has been awarded the One City Park scheme, a new state-of-the-art office building, in Bradford
One City Park is part of a raft of new regeneration projects announced by Bradford Council.
The innovative development will combine 9,100 sq m of commercial space with 5,240 sq m of Grade A office accommodation. The building will also be BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rated.
Bradford Council Leader, councillor Susan Hinchcliffe, commented: “One City Park is the next step in the growth and regeneration of the whole district – it’s a game-changing city centre development, both for the local economy and environmentally.
“It will transform the commercial office market to meet the aspirations of existing and new businesses. And the sustainable design specifications are absolutely in line with the council’s commitment in January 2019 to doing its utmost to tackle the global climate emergency.
“The appointment of award-winning developer Muse to design and build One City Park is yet another firm indicator that Bradford – city and district – is on the way up.
“Building on the success of City Park and the progress of Bradford Live, it’s a further indication that the UK’s youngest city, with its entrepreneurial spirit, is recognised by the wider business community as a place where they want to, and can, do business and that we are a council which supports them to do that.”
David Wells, regional director for Yorkshire and the North East at Muse Developments, added: “We’re delighted to have been selected by Bradford Council to deliver this exciting and innovative scheme, and we look forward to working closely with both the council and the wider community in the coming months.
“This development will form an important part of the council’s city centre masterplan and we will be delivering a best-in-class destination that attracts new occupiers to Bradford and reinforces the city centre as a fantastic location for business.”
Subject to planning, work will begin on One City Park site in 2021 with expected completion in 2023.
