With the first phase of Horizon 38 in Bristol completing in July and the construction of the access roads due for completion in August, we thought this would be a good time to send out a drone to show the progress to date.

The first phase is ready for occupation and consists of 5 units ranging from 21,400 sq ft to 63,000 sq ft with a further 115,500 sq ft unit currently under construction.

GVA are industrial agents to Horizon 38, a landmark strategic development site, directly fronting onto the A38 in Filton near the former Filton airfield, Airbus and Rolls- Royce engines manufacturing plant. 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.

In total 580,000 sq ft of industrial, logistics and manufacturing space is being built at Horizon 38 in four phases - funded by BP pension Fund. These units will range from smaller trade counters starting at 3,800 sq ft to a 115,500 sq ft distribution centre. Selco have already agreed a lease on a purpose built 35,000 sq ft trade counter unit onsite.

In addition to the speculative industrial, logistics and manufacturing development there is a further 25 acres of development land earmarked for mixed use commercial opportunities. Already agreed is a sale to Village Hotels for the construction of a 153 bedroom 4* hotel on the corner site. The site has potential for high profile car showroom development and we have received significant interest for this use.
