Property Details

Two large connecting freehold buildings of approximately 14,000sqft (Gross Internal Area) currently arranged as light and airy offices with studio space over 2-3 storeys. The property is situated close to Bristol City Centre in a location due to undergo substantial redevelopment. The building would make an ideal commercial investment with potential to sub-divide into smaller office/studio suites, would suit owner occupation and also offers potential for residential redevelopment, subject to obtaining all necessary consents. Best and final offers are invited by 12 noon on 14th December 2016.


A substantial freehold commercial building fronting both Dove Lane and Wilson Place. The building is currently let to three separate tenants producing £56,800pa (approximately £3.80-£5.75/ft), which we feel is substantially below that of market level. The property is situated in a central position at the bottom of the M32 close to the entrance to the Cabot Circus car park.
