Vistry Partnerships completes Box Makers Yard in Bristol for Legal & General

Vistry Partnerships has completed Box Makers Yard, a major residential development of 376 new privately rented homes in Bristol for Legal & General.

Comprising two separate buildings, Vistry Partnerships also completed works to amenity and public areas, including ground floor lounges, a fully equipped gym, games room, private dining rooms and an 11th floor residents’ roof terrace.

The decision to install the roof terrace was taken by Legal & General following the success of another terrace built by Vistry Partnerships at Legal & General’s Ferry Lane site in London.

Works to the first residential building commenced in February 2018 (149-week programme), with the second residential building completing earlier this month (115-week programme).

Located in Temple Quarter and a short walk from Bristol Temple Meads station, Box Makers Yard now provides studio, 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom apartments.

Marc Thompson, Managing Director of Vistry Partnerships West, said:
“Box Makers Yard is a flagship new PRS development in Bristol and we are delighted to have handed over the keys to Legal & General in line with our delivery programme. The development will play a key role in the ongoing evolution and regeneration of this central area of Bristol, attracting new residents, many of them younger professionals looking for a high-quality, city centre apartment to rent.”

Vistry Partnerships is part of Vistry Group PLC, which also comprises national housebuilders Bovis Homes and Linden Homes. Vistry Partnerships is the Group’s specialist regeneration business, working with Registered Providers and Local Authorities to increase the supply of housing.

The Partnerships West team is currently bringing forward a range of major new housing developments in Bristol, including Blackberry Hill in Fishponds with Bristol City Council and Romney House in Lockleaze with Goram Homes, as well as new developments in South Gloucestershire and Somerset. The business recently secured resolution to grant planning permission for City Gateway, a notable new development in Bristol that will provide 220 homes, and for Kingsdown in Bridgewater, that will provide 80 homes.
