Disused 4.5-acre Bath site acquired for transformational BTR-led redevelopment
We have acquired a 4.5 acre brownfield site, adjacent to Bath city centre, with plans to transform it into a high quality housing-led scheme as part of the wider regeneration of the Bath Western Riverside enterprise area - in partnership with Bridges Fund Management, the specialist sustainable and impact investor.
The comprehensive redevelopment of the Bath site will deliver a significant number of BTR and affordable homes, alongside commercial spaces and improved public realm, creating a new mixed-use asset for the city. The proposals will respond to growing renter demand in Bath, which currently has limited BTR.
The scheme will offer waterside living, adjacent to the River Avon, in a prime location with two bridge connections to the city centre, an 8-minute walk to central Bath and 17-minutes to Bath Spa station.
A major focus for the scheme will be minimising environmental impact with a highly efficient energy strategy targeting EPC A, onsite renewables, and full whole life-cycle carbon assessment throughout the development process.
The increasing demand for high quality and professionally managed homes in Bath is due to its desirability and vibrancy, fed in part by an exceptional university, strong graduate retention, its proximity to Bristol and excellent transport connections to London.
