Burges Salmon has chosen Temple Quay Central as its preferred relocation site in Bristol in one of the most eagerly anticipated lettings of the year

The law firm will relocate from its offices in Broad Quay and Narrow Quay in 2010 to the Castlemore Securities developed scheme. Burges Salmon will take 170,000 sq ft (15,793 sq m) at a rent of £27.50/ sq ft (£296.01/ sq m).

Castlemore beat competition from Deeley Freed’s St Mary Le Port scheme to win the letting. The deal marks an expansion for Burges Salmon, which has occupied its current office since 1982.
