The transformation of X10 Brindleyplace continue apace with completion for the new sustainable office building slated for Q1 2023.

A BOLD NEW BRAND & IDENTITY

CBRE Investment Management has recently announced the completion of exterior work at X10 Brindleyplace, revealing a brand new back to frame £40m transformation.

The investment combines 8 and 10 Brindleyplace to form a new net zero office and commercial environment, one that comes with large open office floors and full height windows. 

Once fully complete in Q1 2023, X10 will offer 210K SF of prime grade A office floorspace, an all-electric system powered by green energy, and one of the city’s largest floorplates, at more than 27K SF.

The façade, redesigned to have the least impact on the environment, now includes new thermal insulation, with all contemporary bricks on X10 locally sourced bricks from a sustainable quarry.

Within, X10 boasts a lavish new double-height reception space and a roastery and a coffee shop.

Adding to the vibrancy is a new public realm, lounges, conference facilities, studios, co-working areas, meeting rooms, podcast facilities, showers and drying rooms, a fitness studio, six new roof terraces, and a public Turtle Bay restaurant.

The Construction of the Octagon at Paradise - December 2022 Update

Big news for a big project!

The core is out of the ground and there are some outer columns installed, all now visable above the hordings around the site. The building will seem bulkier in the early stages of construction we think, until it gets above 100 metres when it will start to look much thiner but very tall!

The Pressworks is a stunner firmly in full flow.

Nestled on Northwood Street, just off St Paul’s Square, the historic site is being brought back to life with 48 apartments and a mews house.

Steeped in history and dating back to the 1800s, the site was formerly occupied by a Pressworks. The Grade II* listed building that still stands from that area is now being restored and converted into centrepiece homes.

Blending old world with new, contemporary new builds will flank the listed building and will be set around a quaint landscaped courtyard.

The Pressworks will also deliver a unique new duplex mews house to the site’s rear.

In another subtle nod to history, the site's former press will be displayed as a new design feature within the site's courtyard.

Kent Street Baths - December 2022 Update





Excellent progress is being made at Kent Street Baths by Winvic and the legion of subcontractors on the scheme.

Phase 1 will deliver 406 build to rent apartments and duplexes across four new buildings ranging from seven up to 19 storeys.
 


dndimg dndsrc="https://www.freetimepays.com/uploadedfiles/KSB%20December%202022%20(1).jpg" />

 

All blocks are nearing completion and will soon be enveloped by a red Stofix exterior facade, which is in the process of being installed by Caxton Facades and will last roughly 18 months.

All windows are also well advanced, with full installation scheduled for Q2/3 2023, followed by the installation of 582 Juliet balconies.

Completing in 2024, KSB will benefit from healthy cycling and amenity provisions, as well as three flexible commercial units: two to Gooch Street North, and one to the corner of Kent Street.

While the tower and adjoining buildings will have their own concierge and co-working spaces, the heart of the site will feature a three-storey community hub & courtyard space offering informal areas to relax, exercise studios, dining & event spaces, and quaint rooftop garden access.

Residents will have access to a semi-basement for 86 vehicles plus dedicated EV charging points.

Phase 2 (current triangular plot) is closing in on being acquired and will finish off the KSB jigsaw beautifully. It has early stage approval for 98 market dwellings over eight storeys.

Some of the CGIs below are in the process of being updated (brick colour, et all), but their form remains the same.
