Edward Cullinan Architects' plans for the sensitive Canon's Marsh site in Bristol have won 'broad support' from the public following the first stage of public consultation according to practice partner Robin Nicholson. Earlier this month 100 locals saw the initial plans to build up to 500 residential units, a multiplex cinema and 32,000m 2ofoffice space on the waterside site. The scheme is based around two new public routes, one which leads down to the SSGreat Britain and the other which affords views of the city's cathedral. The scheme and consultation process constitute the latest attempt by developer Crest Nicholson to bring the vacant former gas works site into use. Earlier in the year it dropped plans by Arup Associates before giving the public the chance to select a new masterplanner through a competition.
