Small to medium businesses looking for a foothold in the city centre are being steered to Newminster House on Baldwin Street, a stone’s throw from Bristol Bridge.
In a prominent position on the corner of Baldwin Street and St Stephen’s Street, the stylish, seven-storey property now has only one suite of 1,900 sq ft remaining, which the agents point to as a sign of the strength of the market for smaller, good quality city centre office suites at reasonable rents.
Bruton Knowles has recently been brought in as joint agent on the city centre units.
Head of Agency Paul Williams said: “Newminster House occupies a prominent corner location in the heart of the city centre and would be ideal for service businesses such as recruitment consultants or other professional services uses.
“The building offers convenient access to a variety of retail, restaurant and leisure facilities as well as public car parking and public transport.
Existing occupiers include the Wiff-Waff café on the ground floor.
“High quality space has been at a premium in Bristol and Newminster House helps meet that need.
“With an on-site commissionaire, air-conditioning, refurbished open plan offices a modern, spacious reception area, and on-site parking, Newminster House ticks all the boxes for city centre space.
“Recent rises in rental levels mean that landlords are increasingly likely to consider refurbishing office space to keep up with latest business trends and requirements.
SME’s are finding it increasingly difficult to source cost effective office space in the city centre following the high volume of office space which has been or is being converted to residential use, and we are actively seeking more such buildings to meet current demand from businesses currently on our books.”
