The €83.9m project – on the site of the city’s old Courage Brewery – comprises 1 million ft2 of mixed use development, including 399 individually designed apartments, 300,000 ft2 of offices and 87,000 ft2 of shops, cafés and leisure facilities, all set in landscaped public space and linked to the existing city centre by a spectacular new footbridge.

The scheme dovetails the restoration of Grade II listed buildings and elements together with sensitively designed new build structures, an approach which will ensure the maintenance of the site’s character and heritage for future generations.

The project was delivered as three separate elements, with the first phase involving the construction of an initial three residential blocks along with ground floor retail units and floating pontoon works. The second phase involved construction of a further four residential blocks, while the final phase included the delivery of the BREEAM Excellent-rated Bridgewater House commercial office block, providing 110,524 ft2 of Grade A office space.
