A £200m mixed-use scheme for the centre of Bristol was given planning consent this week.
Temple Quay 2, proposed for the north shore of the city's Floating Harbour, will regenerate 7 ha of industrial wasteland. The scheme, masterplanned by URBED and Jon Rowland Urban Design, includes 60,816 m2 of offices, 500 new homes, retail and leisure facilities and an interchange for the city's proposed Light Rapid Transport system. It will also create a "home zone" – a Dutch town planning idea that prioritises pedestrians.

Temple Quay 2 was developed by Castlemore Securities and the South West Regional Development Agency and is the second phase of a masterplan for the area around Temple Meads train station.
