Property developer Gavin Bridge launches new venture Spatia
Gavin says this new independent venture will spearhead transformational mixed-use regeneration, as well as creating low and zero carbon homes and best-in-class, future-fit workspaces in towns and cities across the UK.
Spatia and investor PfP Capital, the fund and asset management arm of Places for People Group, have already formed a strategic partnership that will transform St Jude’s in Bristol city centre into a balanced new riverfront neighbourhood known as Frome Gateway.
They say the are actively looking for further mixed-use regeneration opportunities across the UK.
Spatia’s goal is to create 2,500 low and zero carbon homes over the next few years.
Gavin comments: “I’m hugely excited to be embarking on a new venture at a time when the world of property, an industry steeped in tradition, is having to reinvent itself as we experience a major shift in how we live, work and play.
“That is a space I want to be in; challenging the status quo, raising the bar and instigating real change, transforming places, communities and lives by creating sustainable, inclusive neighbourhoods, future-fit, healthy workspaces and low and zero carbon homes that connect people.”
The launch of Spatia comes after Gavin left his position as a founding director at Bristol-based Cubex following 17 years at the company.
Gavin has delivered over £750m worth of mixed-use development across the UK, including the multi-award-winning transformation of Finzels Reach, a new balanced neighbourhood created by Bristol’s Floating Harbour.
