James Hay Deal Cements One Castlepark's reputation as most sought after city centre location

No other central office building can boast three significant lettings in past 12 months, according to Jones Lang LaSalle

Bristol, 2nd February 2012 - Financial services company The James Hay Partnership is the latest business to move into the city centre One Castlepark – the third letting completed in this office building in 2011.

The James Hay Partnership is the UK’s largest independent provider of SIPPs, SSAS and Wrap and has taken 6,300 sq ft at the 75,000 sq ft, seven storey city centre location on a 10-year lease.

Jones Lang LaSalle are the joint agents for One Castlepark, which is adjacent to Temple Quarter and Cabot Circus. The building has been extensively refurbished by InfraRed Capital Partners and is now one of Bristol’s most sought-after central locations.

Ian Wills, director in the National office agency team at Jones Lang LaSalle in Bristol, explained that the deal to take The James Hay Partnership to One Castlepark concluded in December and capped a great year for his team.

He said: “As well as James Hay, our marketing team also paved the way for the Bristol-based offices of consumer organisation Which? and professional services consultancy Turner Townsend to take space at One Castlepark, which is a tremendous effort in the current market.”

Ian added: “No other buildings in Bristol have seen three significant lettings in the past year and these deals illustrate that when a location has the lot, as One Castlepark certainly does, then people and businesses will come.”

The James Hay Partnership has relocated to One Castlepark from offices in Queen Square. The company’s property and facilities manager, Scott McDonald, said: “We required an office space that more suited our corporate brand and found that One Castlepark was ideal for us in terms of greater professional presentation, improved specification, occupational costs and crucially it meets our clients expectations when dealing with the number one company in its field.”
