Third building announced for IFC Jersey
Jersey Development Company (JDC) has announced it will commence enabling works on the site of the next office building at the International Finance Centre next month (October). The main construction works will then commence on the five storeys, 68,000sq. ft. Net Internal Area, building in November 2021 with a completion date planned for early 2024. The office building, known as IFC 6, will be sited to the west of IFC 5 and the project will include the extension of Trenton Square.
JDC Managing Director, Lee Henry said: “We are in the final stages of detailed negotiations with an anchor tenant who plans to occupy a significant percentage of the building. These negotiations also highlight that post pandemic, office-based businesses are still looking to either upgrade or expand their workplaces which helps to prove efficiency, productivity and staff wellbeing.
“Initially, the enabling works will clear and prepare the site for the main contractors who will mobilise on to the site in October. The construction will take just over two years and we’re delighted that part of the project will increase the public realm in the area by extending the very popular Trenton Square.”
The five-storey building, which will include a restaurant on the ground floor, will be constructed to meet BREEAM Excellent environmental ratings making it one of the most environmentally sustainable office buildings in the Channel Islands.< Back to News list
