Hawkins & George build-to-rent homes launch at Finzels Reach

Hawkins & George, the first major build-to-rent scheme in Bristol, has launched at Finzels Reach.

The modern waterside development comprises two distinct buildings – Hawkins Lane and George’s Wharf – providing private, purpose-built rental accommodation with 194 apartments in total, communal areas and a host of amenities including a roof terrace with amazing views over the Bristol skyline.

With Bristol consistently named as one of the best places to live outside of London and currently facing a shortage of rental property, Hawkins & George offers much-needed accommodation for professionals and families alike in the city centre.

It was developed by Cubex, the developer behind Finzels Reach as a whole, before being handed over to Grainger plc, the UK’s leading provider of rental homes.

Grainger is committed to raising standards by offering its customers greater certainty and flexibility through its optional longer-term tenancies and its strong focus on community, customer service, and convenience and ease for renters.

Hawkins & George offers a range of apartment types – both furnished and unfurnished studio, one- and two-bedroom homes.

Residents also benefit from the range of amenities included in the rent such as an on-site gym, Wi-Fi, a residents’ lounge, a roof terrace, bike storage and co-working space. The shared areas have been designed to encourage social interaction among residents.

The apartments are also pet-friendly, designed in the best interests of pets, their owners and other residents.

As a professional landlord, Grainger will manage Hawkins & George directly, providing residents with professional services including a concierge and dedicated onsite management team.

Gavin Bridge, executive director at Cubex, the developer behind Finzels Reach and Hawkins & George, commented:

“Hawkins & George is one of the final pieces of the jigsaw in the creation of the first phase of Finzels Reach, where we’ve paid careful attention to developing a mixed and balanced community of homes, workspace and social spaces.

“Hawkins & George provides much-needed homes through the innovative build-to-rent model, where residents essentially rent the building rather than an apartment, benefiting from an emphasis on high-quality communal spaces and customer service.”

Helen Gordon, Grainger plc chief executive, said:

“We’re delighted to launch Hawkins & George in Bristol – the first development of its kind in the city.

“Our aim at Grainger is to redefine the rental experience, and in Bristol we will do this by creating an exciting new community at Finzels Reach that combines the flexibility of renting with professional services to give our residents the best rental experience possible. This launch marks another key milestone in Grainger’s growth plans.”
