The developer behind the huge new mixed-use Brabazon development on the former Filton Airfield is now inviting sales enquiries for the first new homes on the site, which are expected to become available in early 2021.

Once complete, Brabazon will incorporate more than 2,600 homes, 62 acres of employment space, three new schools, a public park, health centre and retail and leisure facilities, including the recently approved YTL Arena.

Construction of the first phase of the development, consisting of 302 homes, began early this year and the first properties were ‘topped out’ in September.

This first phase has been named the Hangar District, after three historic aircraft hangars on the airfield site which are all being transformed for new uses. It features a range of one and two-bedroom apartments and two, three and four-bedroom homes.

A sales brochure recently emailed to prospective purchasers describes the properties on offer as being “built of solid red brick and designed by award-winning architects” adding that they will be “spacious, warm and welcoming”.

A key marketing point claimed for homes in the Hangar District is that they are “25 percent larger than others would build, compared against the national minimum space standards”.

Three-bedroom homes in the Hangar District will start from £436,250, with Help to Buy available on selected homes reserved before 15th December. Sales of apartments and two-bedroom homes will begin in 2021.

Planned new transport links include a new railway station, adjacent to the forthcoming YTL Arena complex, and the Cribbs Patchway MetroBus Extension, a fast bus service between The Mall at Cribbs Causeway and Bristol Parkway Station.
