The 65-acre Horizon38 development will eventually total more than 1m sq ft. The speculative development – in four phases and 27 units - is being delivered by St Francis Group and iSec at the former Rolls-Royce East Works site in Filton, near Bristol. Funding is from BP Pension Fund.
Gareth Williams, Development Director at St Francis Group, said, “With the entire site now cleared and levelled you can clearly see the scale of development proposed at Horizon 38. It is the first major employment scheme to come out of the ground in north Bristol for 20 years. “
The first units will be completed by summer 2017 with later phases completed in 2018. Horizon 38 is a landmark strategic development site, directing fronting onto the A38 in Filton near the former Filton airfield, Airbus and Rolls-Royce Engines manufacturing plants. 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.
