Cubex, JLL and Fiera Real Estate have completed the Finzels Reach development in Bristol, which comprises the Millwrights Place Build to Rent scheme.

Developer Cubex, global property advisor JLL and property investment firm Fiera Real Estate have announced that the five-year Finzels Reach mixed-use development in Bristol has officially reached completion. The Finzels Reach scheme includes three projects and £5m of public realm.

Grainger’s £63m Millwrights Place Build to Rent development is part of the scheme. It includes 231 Build to Rent apartments. Amenities include community events, rooftop terraces, gym, co-working space, shared entertainment spaces and cycle storage and maintenance facilities.

“The collaborative approach to delivery at Finzels Reach has resulted in the completion of an incredible new neighbourhood that will serve Bristol for years to come. We are excited to continue our relationship with JLL as we move forward in the living sector to deliver a best in class, sustainable development for the benefit of Bristol.

“The quality of each of the projects, alongside their sustainability credentials and calibre of commercial clients, will ensure Bristol remains the South West’s prime place to work and live. Our collaboration with JLL on the project shows that city centre mixed use schemes can be sustainable, attractive and something locals can be proud of.”

Also based at the site is Coopers Court – a ten-storey scheme consisting of 66 affordable homes that include social rented and shared ownership homes.

Providing one of the UK’s most sustainable offices – the first outside London to achieve BREEAM Outstanding upon completion – Halo at is also part of the Finzels Reach scheme. It boasts 116,000 sq ft of grade A office space. The likes of law firm Osborne Clarke and Deloitte have already established operations there.

“Finzels Reach has been a labour of love over the course of a decade to bring to reality a modern, sustainable scheme that Bristol has been crying out for for years. We’re proud of the work the JLL team has done and look forward to seeing it serve as a hub for wider growth in the city.”
