Finzels Reach in Bristol.
The Finzels Reach development in Bristol City Centre has been one of the most talked about redevelopments for quite some time. Set on a 4.7 acre site it was originally home to sugar refineries and brewers. Finzels Reach is also well known in Bristol for its 91 metre bridge that connects the area to the adjacent Castle Park. The S shaped pedestrian and Cycle Bridge was formerly opened to the public by Gavin Bridge, director of the developers Cubex and local musician Barry Walsh on 7th April 2017.
Avonline have been awarded the soft floor finishes contract with a value of £450K. Willmott Dixon has been selected as the main contractor responsible for the project worth £32 Million.
Finzels Reach will be the largest build-to-rent scheme to get underway in Bristol and is part of a vision to develop high quality spaces and create a thriving, balanced community.
Gavin Bridge, Director of Cubex Land, said: “This is a fantastic inward investment in Bristol by a well-respected and experienced landlord. These contemporary-styled apartments are perfectly placed to complement the rest of our Finzels Reach apartments, hotel, offices and leisure space.
“Much has been talked about the build-to-rent sector but this is one of the first major schemes to get off the blocks, which we believe is testament to the approach we are taking at Finzels Reach, developing high quality spaces and creating a thriving, balanced community in the heart of the city centre.”
Finzels Reach is one of the largest mixed use developments in the South West and is the creation of Cubex Land, the Bristol-based company that took on the site four years ago, with investment from London-based Palmer Capital.
Once complete, Finzels Reach will be home and work to over 2500 people and will include 440 new apartments, two Grade A office buildings, a 168 bedroom Premier Inn which is due to open in 2017, plus a host of cafes, restaurants and a microbrewery. The 4.7 acre site has a rich history at the heart of the medieval city of Bristol, later becoming a sugar refinery and brewery.
