A spokesperson from Avison Young said: “On behalf of Goram Homes, Avison Young is seeking a Delivery Partner for their site at Castle Park. The site is a waterside, high-density development opportunity in the centre of Bristol with potential for private market sale, build-to-rent and affordable Housing.”

”Goram Homes is seeking a partner with the expertise to deliver this highly sustainable, landmark development overlooking the Feeder Canal, next to the historic Castle Park and within walking distance to transport hubs and all the comforts of the city centre.”

“Goram Homes works in partnership to build homes that create communities and are environmentally, socially and economically sustainable. Goram Homes is a subsidiary of Bristol Holding Ltd, which is wholly owned by Bristol City Council.”
