External works on the beautiful Riverview Court development on Onega Place in Bath has now been completed.
The prestigious scheme, which comprises 44 apartments and a café, has been a joint effort between Homes, Newmark and the South Wales, South West division.
Geraint Morgan, said: “Well done to the whole team on delivering this exceptional development on time and to such a high standard. This really is a development to be proud of.”
Designed by Nash Partnership for Watkin Jones Homes, the new development replaces low rise industrial sheds with four-storey, high density residential apartments. It will significantly improve the site and its context, primarily the setting of the Grade II* listed Victoria Bridge and the River Avon.
Lying within a conservation area and world heritage setting and adjoining Victoria Bridge, the site presented the design team with many tricky challenges to unlocking its potential. However, the final design is sensitive to these constraints and to the local ecology, taking cues from historic industrial mills and malthouses to make sure the development is distinctive. Materials were chosen to reinforce and reference the character of the conservation area.
Architect Richard Mather-Jones from Nash Partnership said: “We’re very excited to see this bold Bath project come across the finishing line. The end result is the culmination of lots of collaborative working with the council to achieve a development that’s fitting for this site.”
The style of this development is set to reflect the design all future schemes in the area.
Berwyn Evans, Managing Director of Watkin Jones Homes said: “We’re passionate about creating wonderful places to live that really enhance and reflect the local surroundings. It has been great to work alongside Nash Partnership and the local authority to deliver this sensitive and high-quality scheme.”
