BRISTOL, UNITED KINGDOM
Bristol Harbourside is a 7ha mixed-use development in central Bristol, to the west of the city centre. The site’s masterplan included 664 dwellings, up to 34,500 sqm of office space and a 21,000 sqm leisure development. The development was led by developers Crest Nicholson, with the masterplan completed by Edward Cullinan Architects and was delivered over 14 years, between 2001 and 2015. Prior to the approval of the Harbourside development, three phases of development took place in Canon’s Marsh adjacent to the site included in this research. The transit sheds to the north east of the site were converted into the Watershed media centre in 1982, Lloyds Bank built their headquarters in the late 1980s and ‘Millennium funding’ was used to develop Millennium Square, @Bristol and an IMAX cinema (now the Aquarium) in the late 1990s.
