Soulless empty office block is Bristol's economic saviour

The construction of a giant empty office block has been hailed as a key step in Bristol's economic regeneration.

The new Glassbrick building, which has a commanding view of some waste ground and a scrap yard,  will be rented at approximately £5000 per square foot.

"We're really excited to be helping drive Bristol forward to becoming an economic superpower" said a spokesment for the consortium behind the development.

"With its location in the South West, it would really suit businesses who are happy to piss money up the wall at a frightening rate, yet also love frittering their lives away on trains to London".

"As well as office space,  the building will also contribute to the vibrant feel of the area through its community facilities."

It has subsequently emerged that these will include a Pret-A-Manger and a Starbucks.
