The ‘topping out’ is a major milestone and means the new homes have reached their full height. With construction of this thriving new neighbourhood moving ahead at speed, the first new homes are set to go on sale before the end of 2020.

Toby Savage, leader of South Gloucestershire Council, visited the site in January 2020 when we began to dig the first foundations at Brabazon. He joined us once again to mark the topping out.

Cllr Savage said:

"Brabazon is set to transform the local area and is a wake-up call to the big housebuilders on what new development can look like and deliver for communities.

“The most exciting thing is that this will be a really thriving new neighbourhood, not just another housing project. There will be public parks, schools, community facilities and new transport links. And at the heart of it will be the incredible new YTL Arena. For so many it's going to be the most exciting place to be in the South West."

Set over 380 acres, the transformation of the former Filton Airfield into Brabazon is the largest development in Bristol’s recent history.

In time, you’ll be able to wander around independent stores, discover new restaurants or relax in the public parks and green spaces.

There will also be world-class events, exhibitions and the best in live music at the recently-approved YTL Arena Bristol. Everything that is new and exciting in Bristol is just a stone’s throw away the new homes at Brabazon.
