Plans submitted for 250,000 sq ft bioscience building in Nottingham city centre

How the development will look

Conygar, the owner of the huge Island Quarter development site in Nottingham city centre, has formally submitted a planning application for the next phase of the scheme.

As we revealed last week, Conygar has unveiled plans for an almost 250,000 sq ft building aimed at bioscience firms, which will include laboratory and office space.

Christopher Ware, property director of Conygar, said: “We are delighted to submit this application for the next phase of development. Nottingham is already home to a large number of exciting businesses in the bioscience space and this scheme will be an excellent addition to the mixed-use development we are creating at The Island Quarter.”

Richard Watson of The Island Quarter project delivery team said: “This latest phase is another significant step forward for the regeneration of The Island Quarter, bringing the potential for hundreds of new jobs and increasing the footfall across the wider site. With 1 The Island Quarter now fully open for business and the student accommodation set to be ready for the 2024/25 intake, it’s a truly exciting time not just for the project, but for the city as a whole.”

The facility would be located adjacent to existing bioscience hub BioCity.

These latest proposals will continue the development of the northern edge of the 36-acre development, which also features a 693-bed student accommodation block, due for completion in summer 2024.
