Whitefriars in Bristol nearly full following latest deal



SafeLives, a national charity dedicated to ending domestic abuse, is relocating to new offices at Whitefriars in Bristol city centre.

In a deal brokered by leading property consultancy JLL, the charity is moving from Maxet House, in Baldwin Street, Bristol, as a result of the conversion of its previous premises to housing.

SafeLives has taken 3,312 sq ft of space on the second floor.

The deal means that Whitefriars is now 90 per cent let.

Whitefriars comprises a total of 138,000 sq ft and includes a range of on-site facilities including a refurbished café, a gym, a mezzanine meeting area and a secure underground car park.

Kate Hollick, of JLL in Bristol, comments: “The recent letting to SafeLives is further evidence of the demand for good quality, affordable space within Bristol city centre.

“Whitefriars offers tenants excellent on-site facilities, a prime location, flexibility and affordability.

“Since the refurbishment of a number of office suites we have seen increased interest in this site and can offer refurbished space from 1,500 sq ft.”

Since the beginning of 2014, eight lettings have been secured at Whitefriars totalling 41,691 sq ft, including a letting to Whitefriars Business Centre which has recently opened.
