Marick Real Estate is bringing plans forward for Temple Quarter Plot 3. 

The developer, who has enlisted Sheppard Robson as the architect, has launched a consultation to develop plot 3, one of the last remaining sites in the Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone Framework.  

The team started discussions with Bristol City Council in 2017 to develop the site with a 1,000-person capacity convention centre and hotel.

However, following the impact of the Covid pandemic, revised plans have been revealed for the following across three new buildings, comprising a 232-room four-star hotel, a 168-room aparthotel, approximately 100 BTR homes (with a 20 per cent affordable allocation), shared social and workspaces, a gym and concierge for residents.

The plans also include new green and landscaped areas, as well as leisure and retail units.

Connections through the site, including a link to the harbour walkway, would also be incorporated or improved, where appropriate.

The plans seek to be environmentally sustainable with the hotel buildings aiming for a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating, and there is the possibility of connecting the scheme to the Bristol District Heat Network, and air source heat pumps will be used throughout the site. 

The consultation for the scheme has now closed, with a full planning application anticipated for August.

Should approval be granted, construction could start in Q1 2023 with completion in the summer of 2025.
