Prices start from £199,500 for a one-bedroom apartment and £298,500 for a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment.

As the birthplace of Concorde, the historic former Filton Airfield in North Bristol was recognised worldwide for creativity, timeless design, and the collective spirit of a community that changed the world.

Now this historic local landmark is being transformed to a new city district to inspire the next generation. A place for enjoyment and entertainment. A centre of learning and a launchpad for business. A hub for industry and invention that brings together all the energy and edge of Bristol, with the supersonic new 17,000-capacity YTL Arena Complex at its heart. Brabazon is set to become the most exciting new city district in the Southwest.

Designed by award-winning local architects Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, the new homes at Brabazon address the needs of a modern lifestyle, distinguished by thoughtful design, craftsmanship and a commitment to quality.

It’s the little details that make the apartments at The Navigator Building so distinctive: intricate external brickwork, over-sized windows and high ceilings. The underfloor heating in the open-plan kitchens. The soft lighting beneath the bathroom and kitchen cabinets. And so much more is included as standard:

• Kitchens feature Silestone worktops and fully-fitted energy-efficient Siemens appliances
• Bathrooms have Grohe sanitaryware and Hansgrohe brassware as well as mirrored cabinets and heated towel rails
• Principal bedrooms have integrated wardrobes
• Flooring is included throughout: kitchen / living areas have oak-engineered timber flooring, bathrooms have porcelain tiles and bedrooms are fully carpeted.
• Every apartment features outside space – either a peaceful private balcony on upper floors or private patio terraces on the ground floor.

Jon McDiarmid, Director at YTL Developments said:
“The new homes at Brabazon are unlike anything else available in Bristol at the moment. Designed by award-winning architects, the apartments at The Navigator Building offer more space, more flexibility and much, much more included as standard. We expect the apartments to prove every bit as popular as our houses, which have been selling very fast since they first launched earlier this year.”

About Brabazon
Filton Airfield is steeped in history. Home to the Hurricane aircraft in WW2. Birthplace of Concorde and supersonic travel. Now a bold new vision will see Filton Airfield transformed into Brabazon, a thriving new neighbourhood for Bristol and a place that changes everything.

The 380 acres of the Airfield will become the most exciting new city district in the Southwest. You’ll be able to wander around independent stores, discover new restaurants or relax in leafy parks and open public squares. Inspired by a revolutionary airplane that became an icon of engineering, the 2,600 homes and creative workplaces at Brabazon will be a new home for Bristol’s next generation of pioneers. A place for enjoyment and entertainment. A centre of learning and a launchpad for business. A hub for industry and invention, with the new 17,000-capacity YTL Arena complex as its beating social heart.

Over £100 million is being invested to improve local infrastructure: A new railway station will connect Brabazon to Bristol Temple Meads in less than 15 minutes and a dedicated metrobus will run straight to the city centre. The new neighbourhood will also be criss-crossed by walking routes and cycle paths.
