Castlemore Securities has received planning permission for the waterfront element of its £250m Temple Quay Central mixed-use scheme in Bristol.

Bristol City Council has approved plans for three office buildings, totalling 415,000 sq ft. The largest of the three buildings is 215,000 sq ft, part of which has been prelet to law firm Burges Salmon which has taken 160,000 sq ft.

The rest of the Waterfront scheme comprises 93 apartments, 72 of which will be based in a 14 storey tower at the western end of the site.

Glenn Howells Architects, Niall McLaughlin Architects, Stride Treglown, Atkins and Aukett Fitzroy Robinson are architects. Urbed and Turley Associates provided planning advice. Alder King is letting agent.

Construction work will start later this year and the scheme should be mostly completed by December 2009.
