HELP TO BUY NOW LAUNCHED AT WAPPING WHARF LIVING WITH OVER 30% OF NEW HOMES IN LATEST PHASE ALREADY SNAPPED UP

Nearly a third of the new homes in the second phase of development at Wapping Wharf have been sold (subject to contract), with Help to Buy now available.   

50 of the 163 one, two and three-bedroom apartments in this much-loved harbourside neighbourhood in Bristol have been bought ‘off-plan’ well ahead of completion.

Help to Buy has just launched at Wapping Wharf Living on selected properties, with both first time buyers and existing homeowners able to benefit. The Help to Buy: Equity Loan scheme allows people to buy a brand-new home with just a 5% deposit, whilst the Government lends up to 20% of the value of the property. The current Help to Buy scheme is only available until March 2021, after which a new scheme is expected to launch for first time buyers only.

Pauline Sangster, senior residential sales & marketing manager at Wapping Wharf Living, says: “It’s fantastic that buyers can now benefit from Help to Buy at Wapping Wharf Living. We’ve had a great response to this latest phase of development so far, with buyers drawn to the quality of the apartments combined with the appeal of being part of an established community right in the heart of Bristol. Now that we have launched Help to Buy, we expect to see interest grow further.”  

Prices for a one-bedroom apartment start from £255,000; a two-bedroom apartment from £355,000; and a three-bedroom apartment from £499,950.

Wapping Wharf is an award-winning, much-loved new neighbourhood on Bristol’s harbourside, already home to an established community of residents and independent businesses. Most buyers in phase 2 of Wapping Wharf Living either live or work in Bristol or have a strong link to the city and are already very familiar with the well-established community at Wapping Wharf, with its independent shops, cafes and restaurants.

Several buyers already own or currently rent a home in the initial phase of Wapping Wharf and have first-hand knowledge of how desirable a place it is to live. They represent a wide range of ages and stages of life, from young first-time buyers to older downsizers.

Located on Museum Street at Wapping Wharf, the Wapping Wharf Living marketing suite includes a new show apartment complete with kitchen and bathroom to give potential buyers an idea of how their new home could look.

Sales agents Savills and Atwell Martin are marketing the Wapping Wharf Living homes for sale.

*Help to Buy is available on selected properties: it is already available on Abel Yard, with Hope Quay to follow at a later date.

*Wapping Wharf Living is the name given to the private sale homes at Wapping Wharf, including both phase 1 which completed in 2016 and phase 2, which is currently for sale.

“WAPPING WHARF IS THE PLACE TO LIVE” - PHASE 1 RESIDENT

Wapping Wharf, Bristol’s much-loved harbourside neighbourhood brimming with independent shops, cafes and restaurants, is growing with one, two and three-bedroom apartments for sale now. Over a quarter of the new homes for private sale have already been bought (subject to contract), so now’s your chance to snap one up.

But what would life living at Wapping Wharf be like? We spoke to a resident in phase one of the development, who was one of the first to buy an apartment and move into this popular new area which is now expanding thanks to phase two. Richard Porter, 46, has lived in his two-bedroom home overlooking the harbour since November 2015. He works as an assistant head teacher in a Bristol school.

He said: “I’d been living in London for 15 years when I decided that it was time to move. Having visited Bristol on many occasions and with friends already here, I knew the city well and it was somewhere I was excited to live.   

“I started looking for a new home and it was at the time that Wapping Wharf was launched onto the market - the city centre location was the first thing that attracted me, I also liked the architecture of the emerging area and that it was right in the heart of it all.

“My apartment overlooks the floating harbour; I can see the SS Great Britain and the suspension bridge from my window – it looks like a Bristol postcard! I really enjoy being able to see people going about their day and the vibrancy of the area. Despite the bustle of the city outside, inside my apartment it’s quiet and peaceful.

“With it being a mixed-use development, I’ve got great restaurants and places to socialise just a stone’s throw from my front door.  I often swing past the coffee shop on my way to work, go for a beer with friends or pick up takeaway from one of the restaurants. Living in the city centre really appealed to me – I work nearby so I can easily walk there and in the evenings it’s ideal for catching a gig or meeting up with friends.

“There is a real sense of community between the residents here, I’ve got know my neighbours really well and we’ve created a residents’ association to help one another. We meet up regularly both socially and to talk about anything relating to our homes. We even took part in a charity bike ride together to support a local homeless charity. Having a community and knowing my neighbours is really important to me; it’s something I never really had in London.

“So far, living at Wapping Wharf has been great. I’m really enjoying both the location and the property itself – for anyone looking for a lifestyle that gives you access to the city for both work and socialising, but also wants a property that delivers high quality, Wapping Wharf is the place to live.”

OVER 25% OF NEW HOMES IN LATEST PHASE OF WAPPING WHARF LIVING SNAPPED UP

Over a quarter of the new homes in the second phase of development at Wapping Wharf have been sold (subject to contract) within six months of being launched to market.

42 of the 163 one, two and three-bedroom apartments have been bought ‘off-plan’ well ahead of completion. 20 of the homes sold have been one-bedroom, 20 two-bedroom and two are three-bedroom.

Most buyers either live or work in Bristol or have a strong link to the city and are already very familiar with the strong well-established community at Wapping Wharf, with its independent shops, cafes and restaurants.

Several buyers already own or currently rent a home in the initial phase of Wapping Wharf and have first-hand knowledge of how desirable a place it is to live. They represent a wide range of ages and stages of life, from young first-time buyers to older downsizers.

Pauline Sangster, senior residential sales & marketing manager at Wapping Wharf Living, says: “We are absolutely thrilled with the response we’ve had to the new homes, especially so far in advance of them being completed. People are buying here partly due to the design of the homes but also because they already know and love Wapping Wharf and this is the place they want to live.”

Sue Dyer, partner at Atwell Martin, who has been involved in marketing both phases of homes adds: “Wapping Wharf has become an urban village in its own right and is a really special place in Bristol, with its independent shops and restaurants spilling down Gaol Ferry Steps and housed in its trade-mark shipping containers. There are other new home developments in the city centre and close to the water but what sets Wapping Wharf apart is its strong, dynamic community, which people want to belong to.”

A new show apartment complete with kitchen and bathroom on the first floor gives potential buyers an idea of how their new home could look. The ground floor is home to the marketing suite for buyers to meet with the sales team and find out more about what life living at Wapping Wharf would be like.

Vicky Dudbridge, director of residential development sales at Savills said: “Wapping Wharf offers something really different which is why the new apartments are so popular, despite the on-going economic uncertainty. The fact that potential buyers can see the quality of materials and the specification in an apartment layout in the show home has also built confidence, helping people to envisage what their new homes will be like.”

NEXT 250 HOMES ‘TOP OUT’ AT BRISTOL’S WAPPING WHARF

Construction work has now reached a major milestone on the creation of a mixed community of over 250 new homes at Bristol's Wapping Wharf.

To celebrate this landmark moment, the main partners behind the project from both the private and public sector gathered today to celebrate with a traditional 'topping out' ceremony. To mark the main structures of the buildings reaching their highest levels, the final bolt was tightened into place on one of the rooftops and the partners signed their names on the steel rooftop structures.

Over the past few months, Abel Yard and Hope Quay, the two large buildings that will house the next 256 homes, have taken shape on the harbour skyline and the superstructures are now complete. Rising to five and six floors respectively, the development includes a range of one, two and three-bed apartments. As work progresses, most of the windows are now in place, work to put the slates on the signature sloped roofs is well underway and the construction teams have started work on the interiors of the apartments, dry lining the walls.

Wapping Wharf Living is a joint venture between developers Umberslade and Muse. International infrastructure company Balfour Beatty, which is building this phase of the regeneration scheme, has been working closely with the development team on the delivery of the project for the past two and a half years. 

The restored early 19th century, Grade II listed Gaol Gate is set to become an impressive new public entrance to Wapping Wharf, opening onto a square, flanked by residents' communal gardens. Four new retail units (comprising 659m2) will be created along a new road being constructed through the centre of the site. The architects, Alec French, also designed the previous homes at Wapping Wharf.

The open market one, two and three-bedroom apartments were launched to the market at the beginning of September. A marketing suite and show apartment have opened along Museum Street at Wapping Wharf to give potential buyers a chance to see for themselves the internal finishes that will be used in the development.

Duncan Cumberland, residential development director at Muse Developments, said:"We're delighted to reach this landmark moment on the second phase of Wapping Wharf with the development reaching its highest point. It's also a perfect opportunity to come together with our partners to celebrate this important milestone at the scheme, that has accelerated the delivery of over 250 homes for the city, and further add to the eclectic, vibrant community here. It's these kind of strong, open partnerships, with a mutual understanding and a shared vision, that we can achieve real, transformational regeneration.

"We've had an incredibly positive response to our recent market launch, particularly from local people who are already familiar with Wapping Wharf and we look forward to welcoming them to their new home when the scheme completes."

Stuart Hatton, managing director at Umberslade, said: "This is another key moment for Wapping Wharf and we recognise the commitment and hard work it has taken from the construction teams to get this second phase to this stage.

"I'm really looking forward to growing our neighbourhood and enabling more people to live here and enjoy what I believe is a very special part of Bristol."

The Mayor of Bristol, Marvin Rees, who secured the last bolt on the steel beam of the building's rooftop, added: "The partners here behind Wapping Wharf are helping us solve one of Bristol's biggest challenges. Delivering homes is the key policy tool for us for social justice, health and education outcomes and economic stability and I thank you for making this happen and being focused on delivery. I look forward to more cranes on the horizon."

At the peak stages of construction, the programme will employ over 250 people, including multiple apprenticeship and graduate positions.

NEW HOMES AT WAPPING WHARF LAUNCH FOR SALE

The much-anticipated next phase of homes at Wapping Wharf will officially launch next week (Monday 2nd September), with potential buyers offered the chance to look around a new show apartment.

The new show apartment complete with kitchen and bathroom on the first floor will give potential buyers an idea of how their new home could look. The ground floor will be home to the marketing suite for buyers to meet with the sales team and find out more about what life living at Wapping Wharf would be like. Located on Museum Street at Wapping Wharf, the show home and marketing suite are housed in converted shipping containers, similarly to CARGO, a hub home to many of the quarter's eateries, shops and businesses. 

An initial 26 homes were snapped up in spring, subject to contract, following an initial release to those who already live at Wapping Wharf or were pre-registered. From Tuesday 27th August, those who were pre-registered had an 'early bird' opportunity to buy a home as parted of an additional limited release. From Monday, September 2nd, the public sales launch will kick off, with prices starting from £255,000 for a one-bed apartment.

Pauline Sangster, senior residential sales & marketing manager at Wapping Wharf Living, says: "It's been wonderful to see such a great response to the new homes being created at Wapping Wharf. They have so far had broad appeal across the demographic, from young to older, with many snapped up by residents living in the first phase, demonstrating the popularity of this well-loved, established community."

In keeping with the historic dockside location and the phase one design, the new development has the same industrial wharf-like character. Many apartments have balconies overlooking the new street scenes or internal garden courtyards. Airy vaulted ceilings and terraces feature in many of the top floor apartments. The restored early 19th century, Grade II listed Gaol Gate is set to become an impressive new public entrance to Wapping Wharf, opening onto a square, flanked by residents' communal gardens. Housed in two buildings called Abel Yard and Hope Quay, with five and six floors respectively, the development includes one, two and three-bed apartments. The architects, Alec French, also designed the previous homes at Wapping Wharf.

Sales agents Savills and Atwell Martin are marketing the homes for sale. George Cardale, head of Savills residential development sales in Bristol, said: "It is testament to the exceptional design and fantastic location that the next phase of homes at Wapping Wharf has proved a considerable success – even before they have been publicly launched for sale. We are delighted to market this great development and fully showcase the quality of living on offer at what is fast-becoming one of Bristol's most vibrant and best-loved communities."

Sue Dyer, partner at Atwell Martin, who has been involved in marketing both phases of homes, says: "Nearly all the buyers so far have been from Bristol which shows just how much the city has taken this new area to heart. Many of the first homes to be released have been sold to people who have been waiting patiently for an opportunity to buy here for quite some time and we have had some very excited homeowners."

Of the 256 homes currently being built at Wapping Wharf, 93 will be sold to Sovereign Housing Association, 49 of which will be shared ownership housing and the remainder for private rent, with the rest for private sale. After completion of these first 256 new homes, a further 81 affordable homes will be constructed separately as part of phase two.

Wapping Wharf Living is a joint venture between developers Umberslade and Muse who have secured £23.4 million funding from Homes England towards phase two. The support comes from Homes England's Home Building Fund, which provides loans to help unlock or accelerate the delivery of residential and mixed-use housing developments.

TWENTY SIX HOMES SNAPPED UP IN ‘PRE-LAUNCH' RELEASE OF NEXT PHASE OF WAPPING WHARF

The first homes at the much-anticipated next phase of residential development at Wapping Wharf have gone under offer.

With the main public launch planned for September, a limited number of the new homes were made available in the spring to purchasers who already live at Wapping Wharf or had registered their interest to buy.
Twenty six homes within the much-loved harbourside neighbourhood in the heart of Bristol have been snapped up, subject to contract.

The new homes have been appealing to a broad range of people, from young to older, and many have been bought by residents of the first phase, proof of the popularity of the vibrant new neighbourhood as a desirable place to live.

Pauline Sangster, senior residential sales & marketing manager at Wapping Wharf Living, says: "We've believed for some time that Wapping Wharf is a special place but the initial response from buyers has really exceeded our expectations. There is no doubt that the harbourside location, with access to buzzy cafes, restaurants and independent shops, has something for everyone. "

In keeping with the historic dockside location and the phase one design, the new development has the same industrial wharf-like character. Many apartments have balconies overlooking the new street scenes or internal garden courtyards. Airy vaulted ceilings and terraces feature in many of the top floor apartments.

The restored early 19th century, Grade II listed Gaol Gate is set to become an impressive new public entrance to Wapping Wharf, opening onto a square, flanked by residents' communal gardens.

Vicky Dudbridge, director of residential development sales at Savills said: "We have had a fantastic response to the first selection of new apartments and with its stunning contemporary design and ideal waterside position, it is easy to understand why they have been snapped up. The age range of the buyers spans 40 years which just shows how widespread the appeal of living at Wapping Wharf has become."

The public launch of Abel Yard and Hope Quay will be in September this year, with construction work progressing well.

FIRST CHANCE TO BUY NEW HOME AT WAPPING WHARF SET FOR THIS SPRING

The first homes at the much-anticipated next phase of residential development at Wapping Wharf will be released to the market this spring.

The team behind the much-admired Harbourside quarter in the centre of Bristol is gearing up to market the homes, with the appointment of Savills and Atwell Martin as marketing agents.

With the main public launch planned for this summer, a limited number of the new homes will be available in the spring to purchasers who have already registered their interest to buy.

Any prospective homeowners who want to be amongst the first to purchase one of the new apartments need to register their interest by 1st April, with the initial 'pre-launch' release of homes set for the end of April.

Pauline Sangster, senior residential sales & marketing manager at Muse Developments, says: "It's hugely exciting to be gearing up for the next phase of homes at Wapping Wharf which are rapidly taking shape on site. It's been wonderful to see how warmly Bristolians have embraced this new harbourside neighbourhood and we're really pleased to be able to continue to grow this unique community."

The new development will retain the same unique gritty, dockside character as its first phase and will remain in keeping with the historic surrounding area. Roof-level apartments will benefit from vaulted ceilings and terraces. Many apartments will have balconies and some will benefit from views to the waterways to the north and south, whilst others will overlook landscaped courtyards.

Designed by Alec French, the architects responsible for the previous homes at Wapping Wharf, the one, two and three-bed apartments and penthouses will be fitted out to a high standard throughout, housed within two six-storey buildings to be called Abel Yard and Hope Quay. The restored early 19th century, Grade II listed Gaol Gate will become a focal point for the development, providing a new public entrance to Wapping Wharf, opening onto a small square, flanked by residents' communal gardens.

As one of Bristol's most exciting new neighbourhoods, award-winning Wapping Wharf is right in the heart of the city's cultural and leisure hub and is well-known for its an incredible array of independent restaurants, cafes and shops, as well as CARGO, which houses many of these in converted shipping containers, giving the area its own unique independent character.

Most of the apartments will be offered for sale on the open market, with 93 being sold to Sovereign Housing Association, 49 of which will be shared ownership housing and the remainder for private rent. After completion of these first 256 new homes, a further 81 affordable homes will be constructed separately as part of phase two.

Prior to the main launch to market this summer, a limited number of the new homes will be available to purchasers who have registered their interest by 1st April.
