WCN Editorial Team 25 Oct 2021 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Urban regeneration firm Muse Developments has received full planning permission from the Bradford Council for the construction of One City Park, an office building in Bradford, the UK.

The new 56,403ft2 office building will be construction on the former police headquarters site in the heart of the city centre.

Through West Yorkshire Combined Authority, the Bradford Council has secured £7.5m funding from the government’s Getting Building Fund to speed up the delivery of the project.

The new office building will provide accommodation for occupiers ranging from starts-up and growing SMEs, to larger organisations.

During the construction phase, the project is expected to create over 300 jobs and further 452 jobs upon completion.

The company stated that the new five-storey office building is an important part of the council’s wider regeneration of the city.

One City Park will feature photovoltaic panels and air source heat pumps as well as many other sustainable elements.

It will also feature ten car-parking spaces, with electric car charging points along with cycle storage and changing facilities on the ground floor.

Construction work on the project is scheduled to commence in spring 2022 with completion planned in spring 2023.

Bradford Council leader Susan Hinchcliffe said: “To support the next stage of our growth and ambition for Bradford, the city centre needs new, high-quality and flexible office space to keep home-grown businesses in the district and to attract new organisations from outside the region.

“Getting the green light for this development, on the back of Bradford being longlisted for UK City of Culture 2025, is another step in our plans for delivering regeneration. We look forward to working with Muse to bring the scheme to completion over the coming months.”
