New landmark for flagship store
House of Frazer
Shop fitters are due to complete their work in autumn 2008
The massive redevelopment of the Broadmead area of Bristol has reached a milestone with the hand over of the new House of Fraser to shop fitters.

The 170,000 sq ft (1,5793 sq m) building sits at the eastern end of the central Bristol site.

The four-storey department store is at the gateway to the city from the M32.

"Architects, Stanton Williams, have created a signature building of powerful visual interest," said a House of Fraser spokesman.

The department store retailer will now begin work on fitting out the building, which should be completed by autumn 2008.
