FCBStudios Designs Mixed-Use Development in the Heart of Bristol

FCBStudios’ St Mary le Port Bristol redevelopment plans were approved by the Planning Department. This approval was a key step in the transformation of this important site into an integral part of the city’s urban fabric. This scheme preserves the historic importance of St Mary le Port’s church tower and ruins. It also restores street patterns from pre-WWII while connecting the area to the city center. The project will include commercial and office spaces. It is expected to improve the shopping and working experience in central Bristol.

Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, Bristol City Council, and the community developed the design for client MEPC. It proposes a mixed use development in the heart Bristol. This will revitalize the area and reframe its historic heritage. Three new buildings will replace three 1960s bank buildings. They will include office space and commercial units that can be used by retailers, cafes, restaurants, bars, and other businesses. The design enhances Castle Prak’s accessibility and restores the street patterns. It also proposes the repair of the church’s ruin to allow the public free access to its historical heritage.

We worked closely with the Bristol City Council and local community groups to create a plan that restores historic streets. The scheme focuses on the restored ruin St Mary le Port Church. This will reconnect the City with an improved Castle Park. This scheme addresses the future requirements of a sustainable, healthy and post-Covid workspace. It also includes a public face of independent shops and cafes that link to the historic St Nicholas Market, as well as the heart of Bristol City Centre. Keith Bradley, Senior Partner FCBStudios

The project will aim to increase biodiversity by 85%. It proposes planting new trees, improving Castle Park and green terraces. The street level would be activated by terraced planters, which will increase the connection to the neighboring park.
