Muse Developments submits plan for new office building in Bradford, UK

WCN Editorial Team 7 Jul 2021 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Urban regeneration firm Muse Developments has submitted planning application to Bradford Council for One City Park, an office building in Bradford, the UK.

In March this year, the company had signed a development agreement with the council for the delivery of the new scheme in the heart of the city centre.

The new 56,403ft2 office building is said to be part of the council’s wider regeneration of the city.

The Bradford Council has also secured £7.5m funding from the government’s Getting Building Fund to accelerate the delivery of the project. The government funding was obtained through West Yorkshire Combined Authority.

The project is expected to create about 300 jobs during the construction phase and a further 452 employment opportunities upon completion.

Muse development director Simon Dew said: “To take the next major step by submitting planning for One City Park is testament to the hard work of everyone involved.

“Both Muse and the council have a clear vision for the scheme and we’re confident that we’ll drive growth, opportunities and community wealth to benefit the Braford community, through the transformation of the former police HQ site.

“Together with partners, we’re delivering purposeful regeneration to meet the demand for Grade A office space in the city from local SMEs, inward-investing occupiers and we look forward to starting on site, should we receive consent.”

The company is planning to commence work on the project later this year following receipt of planning consent.

In November last year, Muse awarded a contract to GMI Construction Group to construct a new purpose-built job centre for the Department for Work and Pensions in South Shields, the UK.
