New CGI's revealed at Wapping Wharf
New CGI images reveal look and feel of Wapping Wharf - the last major development for Bristol’s Harbourside, and Muse’s first foray into the Bristol market.
When complete Wapping Wharf will include; apartments, offices, shops, restaurants and a hotel and represents the final piece of the jigsaw to regenerate Bristol’s iconic Harbourside.
Wapping Wharf is being developed by Muse in a joint venture with midlands based Umberslade, and is one of the most significant schemes the city has seen in recent years.
This £42 million first phase of construction will include the development of 194 residential apartments, including 26 affordable homes and 865 sq metres of retail and leisure space as well as a new pedestrian pathway linking south Bristol and the Harbourside.
Duncan Cumberland development director for Muse added: “Wapping Wharf will provide high quality homes in an enviable harbourside location. With confidence in the residential market returning – particularly in Bristol, we expect to see a high demand from potential buyers”.
Stuart Hatton, director of Wapping Wharf (Umberslade) Ltd, said:
“We’re very grateful to Stephen Williams for helping us to secure funding to get this major Bristol development out of the ground. Already, the foundations are laid for Sugar Quay -which means a vibrant new, living, working and leisure area for Bristol’s Harbourside is fast becoming a reality.”
Work at Wapping Wharf started late last year, following a £12 million investment from the Homes & Communities Agency (HCA), at the time the largest single award in the UK made under the ‘Get Britain Building’ scheme.
When complete, Wapping Wharf will be transformed into a community of up to 625 homes, as well as local shops, cafes, restaurants, offices and a 150 bed boutique hotel.
