The site

The site is comprised of two parcels of land located either side of Chatterton Street which have on them the vacant Robins and Day car dealership building and Victoria House, which closed in February 2021. This brownfield site is approximately 0.8 hectares in size and has prominent frontage onto Clarence Road and Temple Gate.

To the north is City Point, a seven-storey commercial building home to Holiday Inn Express and offices, with the Temple Gate multi-storey car park behind. To the west is open parking and garages that serve the four story residential buildings beyond, the closest of which are Garamond Court and Calson Court.

There are significant listed buildings close to the site which have been considered in developing the proposal including Temple Meads Station and the long views of St Mary Redcliffe. These sites however are not within any conservation areas, nor have any listed structures on them.

This site has been identified in the Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone and St Philip’s Marsh Masterplan as a prime opportunity for redevelopment to deliver a landmark, gateway building into the city centre.

The Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone

The site sits within Bristol's Temple Quarter which is in the process of transformation and one of the UK's largest regeneration projects. It will see 130 hectares of brownfield land developed over the next 25 years into a mixed-use community. Part of creating this new place is building up to 10,000 new homes in the area - 2,500 of them to be located right next to Temple Meads station of which our proposal seeks to deliver 412 homes.
