Congratulations to our client Change Real Estate for its recent win in the 2018 Michelmores Property Awards in the Residential Category (35 units and under).

The annual Michelmores Property Awards showcase and celebrate the very best of the South West region's projects, buildings and businesses, recognising both commercial and residential projects of all shapes and sizes across ten categories.

Judging the award, Graham Norwood, commented: "Striking and interesting, Redcliffe Parade is a good mixture of a restoration of a Georgian façade and the repurposing of a tired 1970s building, where the temptation would have been to knock it down. What has been created is an iconic landmark that fits into the fabric of Bristol."

At GVA our planning team was involved in this project from the outset, working with Change Real Estate and the architects at Alec French to secure planning consent for the Terrace and the 1970s former office building to the rear. The consequent renovation of one of the most recognisable Georgian Terraces in Bristol into 16 apartments has seen the return of the six townhouses at 3-8 Redcliffe Parade West back to their original residential use.

It’s not just the Georgian Terrace that has been transformed. In the 1970s an office block was built behind the Terrace, facing onto Jubilee Place. This too has been included in the renovation, and is now home to 14 two and three bedroom apartments, including a stunning coach house.

Gordon Isgrove comments, “The restored Grade II listed façade at Redcliffe Parade is such a recognisable part of the Bristol landscape. Congratulations to Change Real Estate for the painstaking work that they and the whole project team has carried out to bring this renovation to fruition.”
