3 Glass Wharf – Bristol

As part of a wider master plan, which was granted planning permission in 2003, 3 Glass Wharf finishes the development overlooking Bristol’s floating harbour.

The perfect location

Located in the Temple Quarter, the heart of the city’s enterprise zone, it is an office development with active ground floor which also includes a secure basement car park with cycle parking & separate basement level showers and locker room. With it’s easy to reach location and great transport links, being a short distance from Temple Meads Railway station, 3 Glass Wharf was the ideal space for the HMRCs new regional centre, therefore they have agreed a 25 year lease for the office area of this build.

Working closely with Hazelwood to ensure the desired look was achieved whilst ensuring the product met all requirements.  

The developments were designed to drive local growth by providing a new public amenity area and be home to swiftly growing businesses in the digital, tech and legal sectors, with a number of prominent companies relocating to the area.  The floor to ceiling glazing and frame-less glass balustrades offer panoramic views whilst the glistening glass facades reference the site’s historic use as a glass-works.
