New agent appointed to market Bristol’s iconic Robinson building

February 27, 2012

Property agents CBRE have been appointed alongside Colliers International to market one of Bristol’s highest profile buildings, the 1960s-built 1 Redcliff Street office block.

The 140,000 sq ft landmark building on the corner of Victoria Street and Redcliff Street overlooking Bristol Bridge was originally built for city-based paper and packaging group Robinson – later the DRG Group – and is still sometimes called the Robinson Building.

When it was built in 1964 it was Bristol's tallest building and was roundly criticised for its stark concrete facade and the fact it towered over the nearby historic buildings in Redcliffe and Castle Park. It remains one of the city's tallest structures.

The 14-floor building is now owned by SWIP (Scottish Widows Investment Partnership) with tenants including law firm TLT, accountants Milsted Langdon, software group SmartFocus, and Amey Rail.

CBRE and Colliers are marketing nearly 42,000 sq ft of space to let in units of between 1,619 sq ft and 10,416 sq ft at an asking rent of 18.50 per sq ft.

CBRE’s head of agency and development in Bristol Philip Morton said: “This is a landmark building for Bristol and we are delighted to be working with SWIP in raising its profile.”
