Urban Creation Finalist for Prestigious Bristol Property Award
We are honoured to announce that Urban Creation has been confirmed as a finalist for a 2023 Bristol Property Award in the Residential Development category for our work transforming 60 Queens Road into luxury boutique apartments.
As a company focused on developing and managing high-quality residential spaces in Bristol, being recognised for excellence by industry leaders is a tremendous achievement. Our talented team strives to inject new life into underutilized sites across the city, supporting tourism, businesses, students, and more through thoughtful development.
So, what did we do to become a finalist? It’s a lot, so get ready…The intensive 6-month renovation of 60 Queens Road required extensive planning and precise execution.
To begin, we arranged and secured financing to purchase the property before stripping away outdated fixtures and fittings to create a blank canvas. The kitchens were then fully installed with durable solid worktops and contemporary cabinetry. Sleek new bathrooms were designed with vainity units providing storage and elegant walk-in showers. For optimal safety and functionality, we completely upgraded the building’s electrics to meet modern regulations as well as installing an advanced fire alarm system. The Assa Abloy mobile key system we integrated allows for seamless, keyless entry. Our dedicated painting team skillfully filled and painted the walls in each unit, using stylish wallpaper accents in select spaces. New water-resistant wood flooring finishes were laid throughout to align with our elegant aesthetic. Outside, the decking was treated and refreshed to create an inviting space for residents. No detail was overlooked inside; the entrance and common areas were completely revamped with light-filled updates. To complete the tranquil oasis-like feel, new upholstered sofas, dining sets, beds, lighting, and decor were curated and placed in each apartment.
…Phew! The result is a serene, contemporary living space our residents are proud to call home.
The seamless end-to-end process, from securing financing to interior design to attracting residents, demonstrates our team’s drive to innovate.
We take great pride in enhancing Bristol through well-considered developments focused on quality, sustainability, and enriching experiences.
And we don’t plan to slow down anytime soon! On top of this we have been working on turning 48 Park Street into student housing and 54 & 56 Park Street into contemporary student accommodation comprising of 6 student flats housing 14 bedrooms all with en-suites within the existing footprint. With our completion deadline set for next month, we already have 50+ tenant enquiries.
We are grateful for the recognition and will continue striving to make a positive impact across Bristol’s built environment. Win or lose, we are honoured to be nominated amongst the city’s very best.
See you on the 24th November for the Bristol Property Awards Ceremony!
