Case Study


Finzels Reach is a collection of beautiful wharf-side buildings, part of which are Grade II listed, situated in the heart of Bristol. It is a stunning blend of historic buildings and contemporary architecture, offering a mix of restaurant and retail space, a hotel, 240,000 sq ft of office space and 437 gorgeous apartments.


The Challenge

Finzels Reach has a character all of its own. Its stunning buildings, waterside location and unique history make it a perfect contender to become a destination venue to challenge the established hubs of Bristol’s fashionable food and beverage areas.  Insight are charged with bringing the perfect operators for the various spaces together to create a blend of exciting, innovative bars, restaurants and leisure operators to bring people back time and time again and put Finzels Reach firmly on the Bristol “must visit” map.

Stunning buildings in a waterside location with a unique history.

Our Insight

We keep our ear to the ground and know what the latest trends are in the marketplace and who the ones to watch are in those areas. By understanding the aspirations of the developer and clearly defining their vision for the space, we built a list of operators to approach that would fulfil the brief. Working closely together with our client, we knew that we could bring together a collection of offers that would complement each other and make Finzel’s a vibrant, exciting go-to destination.

The Outcome
