The Hangar District: Where Brabazon begins

Brabazon will be a place that changes everything. And The Hangar District is where Brabazon begins.

Since 1910, the former Filton Airfield has been Bristol’s Home for innovators and inventors, designers and disrupters. As the birthplace of Concorde, its awesome aircraft hangars were known as centres for creativity, timeless design and for the collective spirit of a community that changed the world.

That heritage lives on in our first phase of new homes at Brabazon, which will be named The Hangar District.

Step out onto a whole new side of Bristol

The Hangar District lies at the historic and cultural heart of Brabazon in a triangle of aircraft hangars, all of which are being transformed for the next generation.

  • Hangar 16U will become a local, social hub for The Hangar District, with its café spilling out onto the green space, picnic spots and playground of the new Brabazon Park.
  • Hangar 16M – part of the Aerospace Bristol Museum - is currently being restored as an amazing new workshop. When it reopens, visitors will be able to see conservation in action as historic aircraft are restored by the museum’s expert team.
  • The Brabazon Hangars – built  to develop the airplane that gives this new neighbourhood its name – are set to be transformed into a supersonic new Arena for Bristol.

Innovative, design-led homes

Like the pioneering airplanes that came before them, the homes at The Hangar District are designed to be different.

We’ve worked with award-winning architects to create a contemporary collection of new homes that offer design quality and craftsmanship that’s on a different level.

Saunter along the streets - see the shape of the rooflines? The unusual angle is inspired by the profile of an airplane’s tailfin, while the south-facing aspect orientates the houses’ solar panels towards the sun. Whether it is the intricate details of the brickwork, the latest energy-efficient Siemens appliances or the Grohe suites and Hansgrohe Brassware, at The Hangar District, quality is included as standard.
