The 261-home retirement village is due to open in late 2018, to the east of Coldharbour Lane near to the University of the West of England campus. The project is a partnership between registered charity The ExtraCare Charitable Trust, South Gloucestershire Council and Bristol City Council, with the Homes and Communities Agency also contributing £2.389m.

Apartments will be available for purchase, shared ownership and rental. Applications open later this year and over 400 households have already registered their interest.
