Channel 4 has announced that it is in advanced negotiations with developer Cubex to locate its new Creative Hub at Finzels Reach, Bristol’s new waterfront quarter.
Channel 4 plans to lease 3,200 sq ft of space on the second floor of the Fermentation Buildings at Finzels Reach.
West of England Mayor, Tim Bowles, said: “Our Invest Bristol & Bath team has worked with Channel 4 over many months to find the right location for the new creative hub, and I’m delighted they have chosen Finzels Reach. I know Channel 4 will find a great home in the West of England and I look forward to their arrival and all the opportunities for new, creative jobs it will offer our residents.”
The new Creative Hub in Bristol – expected to open in autumn 2019 – will be a base for key creative decision makers supporting Channel 4’s relationship with the production sector – with a particular focus on supporting genres strongly represented in the South West, Wales and Midlands. Commissioning departments represented in the new Creative Hub in Bristol will include: Drama, Factual, Popular Factual – as well as Creative Diversity, supporting on and off-screen diversity. It will also have additional supporting operational roles.
