Major office building in Chester nears completion

During the first week of September, the first building in Muse Developments, Chester was topped out.

One City Place contains 70,000 sq. ft. of premium office space that has been built to the BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Methodology) Excellent standard. This makes this new office space some of the most environmentally friendly and sustainable in the UK.

The topping out of this building is a landmark achievement for the £100m business development. Phil Mayall who is the development director for Muse Developments told the press:

“One City Place forms the first part of the brand new Central Business Quarter and lays the foundations for the next generation of successful business leaders in the city.”

Muse is the biggest business development Chester has seen this century. Funding from the North West Evergreen Fund and the European Regional Development Fund both helped to make it possible.

The development of the new business district and the surrounding public spaces has been keeping builders and architects in Chester busy for several years and will do so for many years to come. By 2028, six more office blocks will have been built providing the city of Chester with a total of 440,000 square feet of new office space.

Part of the development was the restoration of a Grade II railway shed and improvements to the station to make access to the area easier. Station Square has been updated and improved with new shop frontages and street furniture.
