Legal & General recognises that UK cities need significant investment to adapt, change and innovate and is committed to working with partners to help future-proof the regional economies of cities.

Bath Quays North is a 5.5 acre prime riverside site in Bath city centre, with outline planning permission to redevelop into a 306,000 sq. ft office-led, mixed use scheme. This deal highlights Legal & General’s significant ongoing commitment to investing in Bath, where it is also about to complete 171 Build to Rent apartments at Spring Wharf, with first residents now in situ. The proposed redevelopment of Bath Quays North demonstrates Legal & General’s focus on creating sustainable communities with good employment opportunities and housing.

Rachel Dickie, Head of Urban Regeneration at Legal & General’s Future Cities business: "We are delighted to have been selected to develop Bath Quays North and look forward to working with the Council to bring our vision for Bath to life. Our investment partnerships in cities such as Cardiff and Newcastle are already delivering at pace, and we believe that our plans for Bath Quays North will have a significant positive impact on the city centre, generating employment opportunities and economic growth."
