The firm will now work up more detailed designs for construction of around 113,000 sq ft of office space, plus hotel, and 49 apartments, as part of the first phase of development for the wider 7-hectare riverside site.

It is the first phase of Project Taunton, a 50-hectare regeneration scheme which will include 500,000 sq ft of office space in total, leisure facilities including cafes, restaurants, foodstore, hotel, and over 400 homes.
