This landmark building was converted from a paper bag factory in 2010, creating 100 apartments in Bedminster, South Bristol. The architects sought to retain the industrial heritage of the building both inside and out whilst creating interesting and practical living spaces. It is now is one of the most popular places to live in the area and residents are a lively mix of owner occupiers and tenants.
Key features include:
- Retention of original features such as brickwork within flats and the steelwork
- A central communal energy system
- Secure parking
- Shaft less lifts
One of the reasons the building is so popular is the spectacular architecture, thanks to local practice O’Leary Goss. From the ETFE Cushion Roof to the powder coated replica conservation windows and glazed brick interior walls, planned maintenance is a significant factor of the building management.

Set just off an historic listed Georgian Square in central Bristol, Portland Heights is a new development of 2 and 3 bedroom apartments. The building is a conversion from a bland concrete 1970s 4-storey office building to 19 modern contemporary apartments with large living spaces in 2013.
Key features include:
- A lavish entrance lobby
- Central lift
- Secure parking and bike store
- External street art
The developer was keen to create an exemplary scheme and invested in internal communal specification. From the impeccable entrance lobby to the external façade, retaining the look of the building is an important factor of Bloq’s role in building management, and we have gone to manage three more blocks with this developer, who says our Property Manager has ”been extremely reliable and thorough in all your dealings at Portland Square and Heights.”
Bloq Management is also developing good relations with residents, and helped with moving two of the four block from developer to resident management companies.
