Horizon38 marks an end to Bristol’s industrial property drought

The project combines industrial and distribution buildings totalling 580,000 sq ft with a further 25 acres of mixed employment space including new offices, trade warehouses, motor trade outlets and a new landmark hotel by Village Urban Resorts. The scheme will ultimately support the supply chain of neighbouring aerospace industries, and will benefit from further proposed housing development in the nearby area.

The first occupiers are already moving in, with Selco Builders Merchants due to open their store in November this year; construction starts imminently on the new 153 bed hotel to open by the end of next year; while 210,000 sq ft of warehousing is currently available to let. Big improvements to the local road network are also being undertaken.

New images have been released of the completed first phase units at the new landmark development site Horizon38, Filton

The first phase of Horizon38 comprises six units, aimed at occupiers within the logistics and manufacturing sectors, ranging in size from 21,400 sq ft to 115,600 sq ft. The next phase including 31,700 sq ft of trade and 60,650 sq ft of light industrial/warehouse units has commenced and will be completed in April 2018. Once complete Horizon38 will comprise up to 1million sq ft of mixed use space.

Horizon38 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 and just 3 miles from Bristol city centre and less than 2 miles from the M5. Horizon38 is being developed by MSF Filton Limited, a joint venture between St Francis Group and iSec.

Significant new road improvements are now in place and there is a major project to widen the Gypsy Patch Lane rail tunnel imminently in conjunction with South Gloucestershire Highways.

Village Urban Resorts will begin work on site shortly on their new landmark, 153 bed hotel, to be situated on the corner of the A38 and Gypsy Patch Lane. It will open by late 2018. It will feature a business and events hub, and a state of the art health and fitness club, including swimming pool, bar and restaurant.
