West of England Young Planners are pleased to host a site visit to Wapping Wharf. Come and meet other Young Planners and learn more from this site regeneration.
Wapping Wharf has become one of Bristol Harbourside’s newest urban quarters which will complete the regeneration of the iconic floating harbour. On completion of both phases, the development will comprise over 600 new homes, independent shops and a number of local restaurants and cafes, alongside some office space.
Development of this brownfield site, which was being used as a surface car park up until recently, was granted outline planning permission in 2007, and an extension of time was then granted in 2014. Phase 1 of the development has won a number of awards over the last few years, including ‘2016 Insider South West – Residential Development of the Year’, and the ‘2017 Michelmores Property Award – Residential Project of the Year, 41 units and over’, to name but a few.
We would like to invite you to take part in this great opportunity to meet and listen to the Architects behind the vision (Alec French Architects), along with one of the developers that helped to bring the vision to life (Muse Developments).
The event will kick start with presentations from those involved in the project and will follow with a walking tour of the site. You will gain an understanding of how this idea took form, and the process that was undertaken to transform this space into an area where everyone wants to live and visit.
Meeting Point: Meet at Wild Beer at 6pm for presentations followed by a walking tour of the site.
Booking: Following the online booking prompts below.
