A major office block could be built in Bromley town centre for the first time in 20 years.

The Commercial Park Group has submitted an initial planning application for a 140,000 sq ft business 'hub' on the current site of Wells House.

Named Bromley Park, the development is said to be "responding to a trend as more talented professionals move to place like Bromley for a more flexible lifestyle and better commute."

John Baker, Chair of The Commercial Park Group, said: “We believe Bromley could be an extremely attractive location for major companies, especially if we are able to provide the kind of modern, green, high tech and well-connected office space that they are looking for.

“The times have changed. Workers want a more flexible lifestyle outside of London – they would enjoy the opportunity to work closer to home.

"Our vision is to create a series of business destinations that offer community, conviviality and convenience.

“Bromley has a growing professional workforce that is well connected.

"It is a prime destination for major companies to base their HQs. But there’s no office space!

"That’s why The Commercial Park Group aims to provide modern, high quality offices for major companies in attractive locations, whilst also giving workers a chance to improve their work/life balance."

The developer says the complex will incorporate green terraces and communal gardens, as well as providing gym facilities.
