careyjones chapmantolcher (CJCT) secured a resolution to grant planning approval for client Square Bay.

The Residential led Mixed Use scheme is located in the Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone, close to the heart of Bristol and the just north of the historic Floating Harbour.

CJCT worked in close collaboration with Bristol City Planning Officers as well as city based interest groups to produce an innovative scheme which reflects the underlying vision for the Quarter as a new vibrant economic area with city living accommodation.

The scheme known as ND7 after its plot designation has an unusual H shaped plan configuration which frames a new public square for the Quarter, surrounded by commercial and retail space at the ground floor thereby establishing an exciting new destination.

Above the commercial base there are 168 apartments located across six to seven storeys. Ranging in size from one to three bedrooms, each unit typically enjoys access to a private balcony and the use of a large rooftop communal garden. Residential parking is located in a basement car park along with extensive cycle storage provision.

The scheme design carefully considered the industrial and shipping heritage of the area and the city beyond and sought to reflect this in a contemporary architectural design with carefully modulated brick facades and a varied roofline.

CJCT's proposals will make an exciting new contribution to the regeneration of the Temple Meads area as a whole.
