Muse Developments officially launches One City Park in Bradford
Muse Developments, leaders in town and city-centre urban regeneration, in partnership with Bradford Council have officially launched One City Park, today (Tuesday 17th May) - a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ 56,403 sq. ft office building in the heart of Bradford city centre.
The development, to be built on the former police HQ site, is the first Grade A office scheme delivered in Bradford city centre for 20 years and will directly address the need for high-quality offices, with flexible options now available to secure off-plan.
The building will be fully integrated and connected to the multi award-winning City Park with new stepped access and attractive seating areas. It is also within walking distance to cultural assets including City Hall, St George’s Hall and new music venue, Bradford Live, which is currently undergoing a multi-million-pound transformation.
More than 300 jobs will be created throughout the construction of One City Park, with Yorkshire-based Caddick Construction named earlier this year as the scheme’s contractor. A further 450 jobs will be based in the building once completed.
The development will have “strong” sustainability credentials, including high-performance glazing to the facades to maximise natural light while reducing solar gain; photovoltaic panels and air source heat pumps to make sure the building operates on renewable energy.
Simon Dew, development director at Muse Developments, said: “We’re very excited to officially launch One City Park as a landmark development for Bradford. There’s been real interest and anticipation building over recent months and we know there’s demand from businesses looking to relocate or expand in the city centre.”
He added: “The green shoots of recovery are visible all across Bradford, including the district making the shortlist for UK City of Culture 2025, successful collaborations with businesses and a commitment to the levelling up agenda. As part of that shared regeneration goal, One City Park will provide Bradford with much-needed Grade A office space in a superb location.”
Muse Developments is an established specialist in place-changing regeneration, working in close partnerships with councils and other landowners, local stakeholders and the wider business communities to create award winning landmark developments across the UK.
Councillor Susan Hinchcliffe, leader of Bradford Council, said: “One City Park is an integral part of our ambitious regeneration plans for the city and this launch comes at a really exciting time for Bradford.
“The city urgently needs new, high-quality and flexible office space to accommodate the ambitions of home-grown businesses as well as attract new organisations into the district. Its central location and superb design will act as a catalyst and showcase what Bradford has got to offer.”
