Developers of Redcliffe Wharf, currently home to roller disco Bump, have planning permission to build 45 apartments there, as well as space for new retail shops and commercial spaces. According to the Bristol Post the work is expected to start in April 2024 and will last until July 2027. Construction will be on Monday to Friday between 8am and 6pm and on Saturdays from 8am to 1pm.
Of the six buildings proposed on the site, two are replicas of the now derelict buildings at the rear of the site. Half the site is given over to high quality public realm, and there are moorings and a ferry landing. A new pedestrian route is provided through to the Quaker Garden, on the vista line from Queen Square to St Mary Redcliffe Church.
Proposals for the development of the site have been around since 2006. The site is owned by Bristol City Council, who, according to architects AlecFrench, “set a high bar for design quality for their ‘jewel in the crown’ of waterfront sites”. The Redcliffe Wharf website has a helpful fly-through of the site.
