Ashton Gate’s vision is to create a world-class sporting quarter for the city of Bristol.

A two-site development which will see an iconic 4000-seater home for the Bristol Flyers Basketball team at Ashton Gate and a new urban village development, named “Longmoor” , 500m from the stadium.

Driven by our desire to use sport to change people’s lives for the better, strengthening the city’s sporting prowess from the highest professional levels to grass roots community sports. 

Development that is driven by participation in sport and promotes healthy and active lifestyles. These latest proposals are brought to you by the same project team that successfully delivered the £45m Ashton Gate rebuild in 2016.

At its heart a major new state-of-the-art Sport & Convention Centre (SCC) providing an iconic home for the Bristol Flyers basketball team and supporting multiple sports, entertainment, events and community uses

Attached to the SCC is a 4-star hotel with 232 rooms, at ten-storeys. The hotel will enable the SCC and the stadium to attract prestigious national and international events by providing on-site accommodation to visitors

A multi-storey car park (MCSP) to provide 536 spaces for visitors to the SCC, the hotel and Ashton Gate

125 residential units will be placed in three buildings and consist of one and two bedroom apartments. The tallest block will be ground plus 13-storeys and be the highest point of the development

Next to the largest residential building is 28,000 square foot of office space.

As well as office hub space it will also provide much-needed expansion for Ashton Gate, Bristol Sport Foundation, Bristol Bears Community Foundation, Bristol Flyers Foundation and the Robins Foundation staff

Three arrival plazas for public space and linked by an enhanced Colliter’s Brook
