The development of Bristol’s tallest residential building marks a major project milestone. A 102m high crane has been erected at the Castle Park View site over Saturday and Sunday, 21-22 September. This will be the largest tower crane to be erected against the city skyline and remain a fixture for 18 months.
Developer Linkcity and construction partner Bouygues UK are building the landmark building on the site of a former ambulance station next to the Finzels Reach development at Castle Park.
When complete, it will provide 375 homes across 26 storeys, comprising 75 affordable properties, as well as 300 private one and two-bedroom apartments.
“We are incredibly excited to have reached this important milestone in the construction of Castle Park View. At 26 storeys, this will be Bristol’s tallest residential building and so naturally requires a tower crane that is equally as monumental – we’re very much looking forward to this historic moment in the city’s development,” said Tony Rides, Castle Park View project manager from Bouygues UK.
“We have also arranged for the crane to be erected over the weekend to limit disruption to the commute of thousands of people into the city and so have avoided the need for road closures.”
The Castle View Park development is set to be complete by 2022.
