Bath Quays project background

Bath Quays is our flagship regeneration project to create a new and vibrant commercial quarter in the heart of the Bath City Enterprise Zone.

Located on the north and south banks of the River Avon between Churchill Bridge and Green Park, the Bath Quays regeneration is creating premium, modern office space in Bath. This will allow existing businesses to expand and new companies to relocate to the city.

As well as delivering new grade A office space to create high-wage jobs and encourage economic growth, the project includes useable public space alongside the river, giving residents and visitors a place to enjoy Bath's riverside.

Key features

The Bath Quays regeneration will deliver the following:

  • up to 2,600 new jobs
  • high-quality space for new and existing businesses
  • a waterside public space for residents and visitors
  • improved access from the south of Bath to the city centre, with a new cycle and pedestrian bridge
  • restaurants and cafes

Sustainability and the environment

One of the key principles of the Bath Quays development is environmental sustainability, in-line with our response to the declared Climate and Ecological emergencies.

Buildings in the development include features such as:

  • Electric car charging 
  • Solar panels
  • Bike storage
  • VRF air conditioning system
  • Buildings with EPC A ratings or equivalent

Bath Quays is within easy walking distance of Bath Spa Train Station and other public transport links, while the new pedestrian and cycle bridge supports active travel and links to the existing pedestrian and cycling network.
