Latest developments at The Eye
Temple Quarter – Bristol’s best kept secret?
6th June 2012
As you walk along the banks of the Avon, you could be forgiven for thinking you were in quiet countryside rather than in Bristol’s designated creative quarter and Enterprise Zone with the ‘retail therapy’ that is Cabot Circus just a short walk from you.
But then Temple Quay has always been out of the ordinary and the calm waterside environment has become a fitting location for the Cities leading legal and financial organisations who have made it their home.
From the BREEAM Excellent rated offices to the unrivalled transport links at Temple Meads, Temple Quarter has been a magnet for Bristol’s business elite. As the West of England’s Enterprise Zone it has attracted inward investment and boosted the local economy; its aim is to create thousands of new jobs. With its extensive range of development opportunities, it will also be the perfect location for creative minded businesses wanting to innovate, network and thrive.
Osbourne Clark, Burgess Salmon, Royal Bank of Scotland and Creston have all made Temple Quarter their home. The Eye hold the enviable position of being the only residential development in Temple Quarter, located right on the waterfront. An exclusivity that adds to the appeal of this iconic building. “Iconic is a word often used and rarely deserved in residential development” said George Cardale of Savills. “The Eye actually deserves the name, it is the only building of its kind in Bristol, a design beacon within the architectural fraternity and the only residential development on Temple Quarter”.
