Castle Park View in Bristol shortlisted for “Development of the Year” at the 2020 RESI Awards

The Castle Park View residential development in Bristol city centre has been shortlisted for “Development of the Year” at the 2020 RESI Awards.

Organised by Property Week magazine, the RESI Awards recognise the best residential developments across the UK. The awards ceremony, which brings together leading developers, designers, house builders, operators, investors, agencies and local authorities, will take place at Grosvenor House in London on 13 May.

Castle Park View is an exciting and attractive scheme which will regenerate a brownfield site owned by Bristol City Council and Homes England in a prime location on the south-eastern corner of Castle Park – delivering some of the best dedicated Built-to-Rent homes in the city centre.

A 26-storey building, the tallest residential structure in Bristol, and a 10-storey building will book-end the development, which fronts onto the park. The strong built form along the northern boundary will be reminiscent of the old castle wall which once stood on the site. The building will provide 375 high-quality homes through a mixture of Build-to-Rent and affordable housing. Car/bicycle spaces and leisure facilities are also provided, along with a 24/7 concierge reception.

Chapman Taylor, acting for Linkcity, was responsible for the masterplan and architectural design of Castle Park View, and we are now working with Bouygues UK on the construction phase and interior design, which will be operated by M&G when it completes in 2022.

Well done to everyone involved in this landmark Bristol development on a well-deserved nomination.
