Pioneering office space unveiled at Parkside

Commercial property professionals gathered at a special pre-launch event of Parkside; the brand new 41,571 sq. ft office complex located on the Knowledge Gateway Research and Technology Park at the University of Essex in Colchester, Essex. 

Hosted by joint agents, Whybrow and Carter Jonas, the event highlighted the building's cutting-edge design and advanced facilities plus the stunning views across Colchester, marking it as a groundbreaking development in the city's commercial landscape. 

The development is believed to be the largest speculative office building in the eastern region and is being completed by construction firm R G Carter.

University of Essex Registrar Bryn Morris, who welcomed guests at the event, said: “With the launch of this latest phase of Parkside at the Knowledge Gateway, our vibrant research and technology park, we are opening doors to unparalleled opportunities for innovation and business growth.

“This state-of-the-art facility symbolises our dedication to fostering a dynamic environment where businesses can thrive, supported by our commitment to excellence in research and education.

“This synergy creates a dynamic ecosystem which mutually benefits businesses and our community of researchers and students, leading to a flourishing community of innovation and growth.”
