Bristol City Council and Skanska are preparing to submit plans for a major new development next to the city’s co-working hub Engine Shed 2.
The £90m Temple Square scheme, designed by Grimshaw Architects, will create a new gateway to the city.
The scheme, reminiscent of the Paddington Cube development in London, will comprise three large office buildings totalling around 250,000 sq ft, ancillary shops and restaurants and a new public piazza.

The development is part of a strategic land partnership with the council, involving a swap with Station Approach, which sits within the council’s masterplan for the Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone.
It will be the largest in Bristol since Salmon Harvester Properties’ 100,000 sq ft 2 Glass Wharf completed last year.
Plans are expected to be submitted by the end of the year with a phase completion scheduled for 2025.
Bilfinger GVA is advising on planning.
