City centre apartment living: for many tenants this is the Holy Grail of lettings, and a quality apartment development can be a huge draw for anyone thinking of renting in the inner city.

Today we’re taking a look at some of the newest, up-and-coming apartment developments in Bristol centre to see the very best that southwest city living has to offer.

Number One

A high-rise collection of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, Number One Bristol is located on St Augustine’s Parade in the vibrant city centre. The building includes a rooftop garden,  gym, on-site parking and a concierge service. Apartments start at £202,000, making this development particularly appealing to first-time buyers and potential investors.

Huller & Cheese

Located in the buzzing Welsh Back area, the Huller & Cheese development is transforming a Grade II-listed former cheese warehouse into stylish modern apartments. The project consists of two riverside buildings – Huller House and The Cheese Factory – and the one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments will feature exposed brickwork, cast-iron detailing and integrated appliances.

The General

The conversion of Bristol’s former General Hospital is a sizeable project that encompasses several buildings in the BS1 area, and offers a wide range of properties, including apartments and houses with one to four bedrooms. Some of the properties come with mezzanines and outdoor spaces, and there is even a converted chapel, space for on-site restaurants and a penthouse located inside a tower!

Bridge Quay

Bridge Quay is a waterfront development located right in the heart of the city, very near to Castle Park and Bristol Bridge. The one- and two-bedroom apartments all come with private balconies, and on-site parking is available for cars and bikes. Many of the flats have already been snapped up, proving just how popular the riverside area is for stylish living and investment opportunities.

Finzels Reach

Another highly desirable riverside development, Finzels Reach is an ever-growing project; some of the apartment buildings have already sold out and others still undergoing development. Some of the buildings used to make up a brewery complex and some housed the generators which powered Bristol’s trams, but now they are home to luxury apartments that cost £595,000 for two bedrooms.

Electricity House

Crest Nicholson have taken what used to be office and commercial space and turned it into a contemporary, Art Deco-style living space in the very centre of the city, on Colston Avenue. The six-storey building houses 85 one- and two-bed apartments, and includes underground parking, a concierge service and access to Bristol’s lively central shopping district just outside the front door.

So, whether you’re a landlord looking to invest or a renter interested in moving to the city centre, all of these apartment developments offer the latest in luxury living in Bristol.
