In partnership with Hill, we will deliver over 150 new homes at Baltic Wharf of which 40% will be affordable housing. Baltic Wharf is located at the western end of floating harbour, locally known as ‘Spike Island’ on the narrow strip of land neighbouring Bristol’s historic Underfall Yard.
With wide open views across Bristol’s famous skyline this development, made up of one, two and three bed flats, will offer the opportunity for a range of household sizes to live in the city centre. The central landscape area will be a mix of public and private space and will help to create a new neighbourhood and vibrant destination in the floating harbour.
The scheme will deliver commercial space and leisure facilities that will provide a new focal point to the western end of the floating harbour. Its green credentials will be aided by high thermal efficiency in construction and solar panels on the roof of some blocks. The affordable housing, acquired by Bristol City Council, will offer new council housing in a prestigious location with 77% of it being available for social rent providing truly affordable homes.
