Cubex Land’s Aurora development has featured within a Savills UK research piece on Bristol offices. The piece provided an overview of Bristol city’s office market, which ‘saw 532,000 sq ft of office space taken across 105 deals during 2018′.

‘The most notable key deals in the city centre were seen at Palmer Capital/Cubex’s speculatively built Aurora building at Finzels Reach, with occupiers such as Parmenion Capital (31,233 sq ft), Experis (5,002 sq ft) and Amdaris (3,194 sq ft) all signing up to space in advance of practical completion at the building.
