JLL let one of last remaining suites in distinctive Queen Square office building

New lettings reflect long awaited upturn in Bristol’s commercial property market

BRISTOL,31 October 2014 –One of Queen Square’s most prominent buildings is almost full following a letting secured by leading property consultants JLL.

King Williams House is now home to Bristol-based marketing and communications agency Proteus Creative Communication Limited, which has taken 2,436 sq ft of contemporary, open plan space on a ten year lease.

Proteus, which employs 16 staff, has moved from Redcliffe Parade, which has enabled them to carry out a high specification fit out in an excellent location.

The period mid-terraced property, which formerly operated as a potato processing factory, is a prominent, turn of the century building on the East side of Queen Square which sets itself apart from its Georgian neighbours.

The last remaining suites, all of which have been fully refurbished, can accommodate a range of requirements from 563 sq ft to 6,134 sq ft.

Ross Wigley of joint letting agents JLL, said: “This lettings follow a resurgence of interest in high quality, newly refurbished space in Bristol, particularly as the economic climate continues to improve. Modern, stylish, open plan space for SMEs is now highly sought after in the city, particularly amongst Bristol’s growing creative sector.

Keith Cottrell, managing director at Proteus said: “We are delighted to have found a really contemporary, openand light space in such a beautiful and historic location. King Williams House is ideal for us, right in the heart of the city and part of the vibrant creative community that Bristol is known for.”
