Finzels Reach Bristol, UK

The redevelopment of Finzels Reach, a prominent site in central Bristol, incorporates a large, mixed-use scheme including 399 residential units. The site is located on the historic Courage Brewery site fronting the Floating Harbour, and is intended to be a new landmark centre for residents and visitors alike. Sheppard Robson’s proposal for the residential element also includes 92 affordable units.

Building heights vary between five and ten storeys, with setbacks over the top two or three levels, allowing for penthouse accommodation. The buildings adjacent to the listed Generator Building adopt a subservient relationship with it, but those on the Floating Harbour achieve a scale consistent with the historical ‘cliff’ mass. Car parking, where provided, is at basement level, with direct lift access to upper levels. The residential accommodation is distributed over a number of buildings, each with its own identity.
