Lack Of New Property In Bristol Fuels Demand From Savy Builders

Crest Nicholson, Harbourside, BristolMore new property needs to be built in Bristol to satisfy the current level of demand for quality new homes in the city.

Many developers have scaled back on their build programmes during the recession which has resulted in a distinct shortfall of new properties.

Fortunately those that had the foresight to maintain their build schedules are now in a strong position to satisfy the renewed demand with a selection of properties ideal for the discerning house hunter.

One developer that has been robust enough to ride out the downturn is Crest Nicholson which continued to build at its Harbourside development on the city’s docks.

It means those wanting a new apartment overlooking the historic floating harbour and within short walking distance of the city centre will find a selection of one and two-bedroom properties all ready for immediate occupation.

Vicky Dudbridge, from selling agent King Struge said: “The recession saw a decrease of property development in the city as house builders took steps to reduce outgoings and limit investments in order to survive the recession.

“But those which maintained their build programme throughout the downturn now have properties ready for occupation which allows home owners to buy now.”

An example of Crest’s foresight is the latest phase on The Crescent. Called Beacon House it boasts a selection of modern and spacious apartments and will be coming on the market in 2010.

In addition Crest only has two, one-bedroom apartments left in the Tiller House phase. Perfect for first time buyers, with Crest’s offer to pay 5% of the deposit makes these an ideal opportunity for those looking to get on the property ladder.

Finally a number of two-bedroom apartments are currently available in Ensign House which hosts master bedroom with en-suite and spacious open plan living rooms overlooking the floating harbour towards the ss Great Britain.

Vicky added: “There’s no doubt that Harbourside is not only the premier waterside development in Bristol but is just about the only development that can offer a wide range of properties ideal for all house hunters.

“We are in an enviable location and people realise that this is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a new property right on the water in the heart of the city. With all the amenities on their doorstep, purchasers cannot find what we have to offer anywhere else in Bristol.”
