The vision

Brabazon, Bristol

YTL Developments bought the former Filton Airfield in 2015, with a clear vision to create the South West’s first design-led masterplanned community.

YTL appointed Allies and Morrison to work-up a masterplan to transform the 350 acre former Filton Airfield into a new mixed-use entire city district of 2,675 homes and 62 acres of employment space, together with a new town centre, public park, primary schools, secondary school, railway station and major infrastructure works.

Having secured outline planning approval YTL is now focused on delivering the first phase of development. This will comprise 275 new homes designed by Feilden Clegg Bradley; the restoration of the Grade II Listed Spitfire Hanger will create 20,000sq.ft of office, a marketing and sales centre and a community hub designed by conservation architects Ferguson Mann, and a major new public park designed by Grant Associates.

Our residential vision is simple. We are striving to set a new benchmark for aspirational masterplanned, multi-generational community living in South West England. Brabazon Bristol will include a range of high-quality, well specified private apartments, family homes, retirement living and affordable homes set within a high quality landscape. Subject to planning, the first phase, including a range of 2-5 bed family homes and 1-2 bedroom apartments, will be complete by December 2019.  

YTL’s commercial vision is to create Bristol’s best commercial district delivering up to 2M sq.ft commercial space.  This will be fully integrated within the Brabazon Bristol community, with on-site creche, gym, shops, cafes and restaurants and within walking distance of the new Brabazon railway station. The commercial district will focus on delivering a world class engineering and technology cluster. Built-to-suit office and commercial opportunities of 20,000sq.ft to 200,000sq.ft are available now.
