Wapping Wharf, Bristol

Client: Umberslade and Muse Developments

Outline planning permission was granted in 2006, renewed in 2014.

The brownfield site, currently used as a surface car park, is gradually being developed with Phase 1 is complete and Phase 2 due to commence in 2017.

When completed the site will provide a network of new streets and squares incorporating the grade II listed remnants of Bristol’s 19th century Gaol Gate and Gaol Walls.

The design is controlled by an Architectural Framework Strategy to provide a consistent approach across the whole site. The masterplan is being updated as each phase is submitted for planning permission.
