Ashton Gate Oasis :Bristol needs housing not hypermarkets.

March 26, 2010

No hypermarket opens a world of possibilities.

And its been done already:

Ashton Gate sustainable housing; it works at Highbury

The gooners created a housing development for 724 apartments on their old ground. And they’re nearly all sold.  And they’ve raised £217m so far (London prices ok).  The project also includes over 70 apartments that are shared equity/affordable housing.

Arsenal Chairman Peter Hill-Wood said:

“….Our wish for the development was always to retain more than a passing resemblance to Highbury Stadium and to respect its class and heritage. With the apartments being constructed in the same location as the four old stands and the pitch being converted into a wonderful garden area, we are delighted that we have achieved our goal. Although Highbury as a football stadium is now gone, Highbury Square has ensured that our old home will never be forgotten.”
