Ashfield Land originally acquired a 30,000sq ft 1970's office building sitting on 2.5 acres adjacent to Bristol Parkway, the mainline station on the Swansea to London line.
The building was fully let to a PLC occupier. We subsequently acquired the adjoining 2.5 acres taking our land holding to 5 acres.
A planning application was submitted in December 2015 to redevelop the entire site for 163,000 sq ft of HQ offices. Consent was subsequently granted by delegated powers in June 2016.
The Approach will combine exceptional, sustainable design on a highly secure site but the key attraction will be the building's connectivity:-
Rail – Immediately adjacent to Bristol parkway station which, by 2018 will have a reduced journey time to London Paddington of 79 minutes and an increased frequency of one train every 10 minutes.
Road – By 2017 a new link road will conect The Approach directly to the M32 and M4/M5 networks beyond.
Bus – The MetroBus will be completed in 2017 and will stop outside The Approach providing regular services to the north and south of the city
