Developer Nottingham One Development Limited is delighted to announce they have appointed construction contractor Willmott Dixon to commence on site on 11th February 2013.
Working in collaboration with the project management and engineer consultant, Arup, jointly they will progress and complete the construction of this £40m mixed use commercial scheme by December 2013.
Nottingham One is a building for business and offers stylish Grade A office space. Functional contemporary offices have been provided as a consequence of careful thought within the design to space light materials, facilities and flexibility on the edge of the Creative Quarter district of the city and the Southern Gateway business district.
Nick Heath, operations director at Willmott Dixon, said: ‘Nottingham One is a pivotal part of the city’s Eastside regeneration master plan. When finished, the mixed-use development will be a major focal point along one of the main arterial routes in and out of the city.
‘Unfortunately, the scheme has had its problems as a result of the recession and subsequent property market downturn, which meant the development has lain unfinished for a number of years.
‘However, now under new ownership the development is back on track,and we’ are looking forward to starting on site to bring this important project to fruition.’
Deputy Leader of Nottingham City Council Graham Chapman said: ‘Over the last year the Inward Investment Team have brought 10 new companies to the City creating over 1,100 jobs. This development is a prime example that the market is recovering and Nottingham is a great place to do business. It is really positive news that the scheme is progressing after so many months of stagnation and that a final completion date has now been given. Teams within the City Council have been and will continue to work closely with Nottingham One to ensure the works run smoothly. The Southern Gateway Business District is a great place for business with excellent communication links to Nottingham’s transport system and in particular the tram. We are delighted to have Grade A Office Space available to new businesses and look forward to welcoming them to the city.’
Colin Wright, Director, Nottingham One Development Limited added: ‘This is a prime location for businesses and residents looking to locate in Nottingham. We have had significant interest in the scheme and already 16,500 sq ft of office space has been let. The development also provides office facilities from 7,000 sq ft to 15,000 sq ft, 237 residential apartments and restaurant, leisure and retail opportunities and is already home the UK headquarters for Crytek the German video gaming company.
