Belfast’s “most exclusive new business address”

Grimshaw-led team announced for arena in repurposed aircraft hangars


Developer YTL has announced the design team for its plan to deliver an arena for Bristol in the historic Brabazon aircraft hangars. The company has selected architect Grimshaw, working in partnership with Manica Architecture and landscape architect Grant Associates, for the project to create an arena by repurposing the aircraft hangars at the former Filton Airfield. YTL’s vision is for an arena capable of


housing up to 17,000 people that puts Bristol on the world map for hosting large-scale events, while also celebrating the site’s place in aviation history. Following the announcement of the


design team, the aim is to submit a full planning application for the YTL Arena to Bristol City Council in the coming months. The arena forms part of a wider


transformation of the local area. The hangars sit on the edge of Filton Airfield, which is now being transformed into Brabazon, a thriving new neighbourhood for Bristol. The 380-acre site will become a “new urban community,” with more than 2,600 homes, creative workplaces and a vibrant town centre set amongst public squares and parkland.

“contemporary but respectful of context,” utilising cut stonework and bronze anodised aluminium to articulate the verticality. It is anticipated that the ground floor


and basement will be occupied by restaurant or leisure uses to provide “activity’ at street level,” with the upper levels providing high-quality and flexible office space capable of a variety of fit- out and workplace permutations and bespoke solutions accessed via a double- height corporate foyer. The Donegall Square South facade is primarily glazed with three projecting

Andrew Billingham, said, “We are very excited to announce our design team. This represents a very positive step forward for us. We are now working up our firm proposals to repurpose the Brabazon hangars to create a visionary arena that will put Bristol on the world stage.” Seb Loyn, planning and development


director of YTL Developments, comments: “We have secured an exceptional team to drive the arena project through the planning process. We are now focused on delivering a design which respects the rich heritage of the site, ensuring the YTL Arena becomes a destination Bristol can be proud of.”


bays providing good daylight quality and outlook. The floorplates start to set back to reflect the notional ‘shoulder’ height adopted around the Donegall Square area providing accessible roof terraces looking across the wider city centre area. Laura McCarthy, senior asset manager


at Killultagh Estates said, “We are delighted to have appointed TODD Architects to have the pivotal role within our creative team behind The Mercantile. This is a key development for us and demonstrates our commit- ment to the city, where we see this devel- opment as a rebirth of one of Belfast's foremost business locations overlooking the magnificent City Hall.” The demolition of the existing build-


ing is underway with construction of the new building due to complete in 2020.
