New contemporary workspace in the heart of Bath
Prominently positioned on the riverfront, Bath Quays South is a game-changing development that will provide the city with a dramatic new riverside space for business, recreation & culture.
A blend of historic buildings with contemporary architecture, Bath Quays South will offer a total of circa 90,000sq ft of office accommodation alongside 70 apartments. The principal building will be No 1 Bath Quays, flanked by the historic industrial Newark Works to the south, and a new residential apartment block to the east. Find out more about these individual sites below.
The development will benefit from a new foot bridge across the river, linking into the city and only 5 minutes’ walk from the station and the Bath’s fantastic retail, food and leisure offer.
No1 Bath Quays
No.1 Bath Quays is the flagship building within the Bath Quays South development. The building is under construction and will provide 46,000 sq ft of ‘grade a’ office accommodation.
Given the acute need for business space in the city, No.1 Bath Quays represents a fantastic opportunity for our scale-up companies to take a leap forward in their growth journey.
The prestigious energy efficient office building has been designed to a target ‘A’ EPC rating and will include 100 dedicated cycle spaces, shower facilities and changing rooms.
The building will be suitable for single occupation or can be easily adapted to a number of potential occupiers. Set over five floors, the top four floors range in size from 9,546 sq ft to 11,230 sq ft. There are two smaller floorplates on the ground floor that total 2,200 sq ft in size.

Redevelopment of the historic Newark Works building will provide a 40,000 sq ft vibrant creative campus, where our business community can meet, collaborate and grow. This former industrial building will be sensitively brought back to life, and will offer a range of characterful studio and office units from 122 sq ft to 5,020 sq ft. The studio and office units are specifically aimed at our burgeoning creative industries sector and will be a great location for start-ups and micro-businesses.
Newark Works will also benefit from an on-site café bar, breakout and meeting spaces. There are opportunities for other uses in the building, such as health, fitness and the arts.
PROJECT STATUS: TCN and Bath & North East Somerset Council have signed a 150 year lease for the building. The refurbishment and fit out works are anticipated to take 2 years, meaning earliest occupations are expected in autumn 2021.
