• iSec announce first two deals at Horizon 38

iSec, in a joint venture with St Francis Group, have confirmed the first two deals at its prestigious Horizon 38 development, a 1 million sq. ft. mixed use and industrial scheme in Bristol.

In the first deal, detailed planning consent has been granted for the development of a new 35,000 sq. ft. Trade Centre for Selco on 2.45 acres. Selco will take a 15-year lease on a building to be completed by October 2017.

In the second deal, iSec have confirmed a deal with Village Urban Resorts for the development of a new 153-bedroom hotel, scheduled to be open by summer 2018.

This new Village Hotel Club will deliver a business class hotel with a business and events HUB and a state-of-the-art health and fitness club including swimming pool, bar and restaurant.

Both deals constitute a major milestone on this landmark new development, representing the first occupiers signed since work commenced on the scheme in the summer.

Steelwork has started to go up on the first phase of a 580,000 sq. ft. industrial development being built in four phases and funded by BP pension Fund.

This first phase of 326,200 sq. ft. is being developed across 6 units, with the first delivery of completed logistics and manufacturing space coming on stream in the summer of 2017 with later phases completed in 2018.

Horizon 38 is a landmark strategic development site, directly fronting onto the A38 in Filton near the former Filton airfield, Airbus and Rolls-Royce Engines manufacturing plants. It sits within the Filton Enterprise Area; the largest and most significant regeneration and inward investment project in the south west, just 3 miles from Bristol city centre and less than 2 miles from the M5.

Mike Forster, Development Director iSec, said “These deals endorse Horizon 38 as a key and prominent business location, within the rapidly evolving North Bristol area. We are already experiencing a significant shift in demand to this area, where we are able to offer mixed use and industrial opportunities that have not been readily available before”
