Construction has begun on One City Place in Chester’s newly appointed Central Business Quarter, marking the start of what is being called a “hugely important development” for the town.

The construction of the six-storey, 70,000 sq ft office building is at the heart of the new business quarter. The first of seven office sites to be built on the multi-million pound project, the speculative build is expected to be significant to the future commercial growth of the area.

Speaking at the ground breaking, the developer of the scheme, Phil Mayall, said:

“Starting on site at City Place marks an important chapter in the new Central Business Quarter which will play a major role in the renaissance of Chester’s commercial offering.”

Mr Mayall went on to say that once open for business, the development will provide first class office floors for enterprises and help generate local economic growth.

The scheme also got the backing from Chester Renaissance’s chairman Eric Langton, who commented:

“This is a hugely important development… One City Place, as part of the first phase of the Central Business Quarter, ticks all the boxes.”

The building represents the first stage in the £100m One City Plan scheme. Due for completion in 2028, it will see a total of 440,000 sq ft of high quality  office flooring  office flooring with the capacity for 3,500 jobs.

The project will also deliver new public spaces for the town, 200 homes, leisure and restaurant space, and see a remodelling of the Grade II-listed Chester Railway Station building.
