House hunters wanting to live next to Bristol's historic floating harbour can register their interest now as plans are put in place for the final phase of Crest Nicholson's Harbourside development.

Called Invicta, this final phase is to be launched in July and once complete will comprise 170 one, two and three-bedroom apartments plus a number of one-bedroom studios.

Spread over five floors, the variety of different styles and property sizes is expected to attract a lot of interest from those looking to live next to the city's historic floating harbour and is why the sales team is advising anyone interested to get in touch.

The name for the new phase draws inspiration from Bristol's link to the city of Porto in Portugal which was also known as Cidade Invicta, or The Unvanquished City.

Twinned in 1984 links between the two cities go back more than 500 years through the port trade with Invicta being located next to Porto Quay.

Plans for the building were granted in April 2011 and includes an important pedestrian link called Millennium Promenade from the Millennium Square to the Harbour Inlet. This will incorporate a rich ecological landscape and provide views across to the ss Great Britain completing the famous Brunel Mile.

Susan Young, sales and marketing director at Crest Nicholson said: "It's very exciting news that this last section of Harbourside is to be launched. There is a rich mix of property styles and sizes and we're convinced they will appeal to a wide range of house hunter.

"Sales remained strong at the development despite the economic downturn with the rest of the development now sold out. This clearly shows that if you have a quality product that is competitively priced and in the right location then it will appeal to those looking to move.

"No other development can offer waterside living with such close proximity to the city-centre.

"The arrival of Invicta and the development of Millennium Promenade are also important pieces of the final jig-saw for Harbourside which has transformed the area formerly known as Canon's Marsh into a place where people can live, work and enjoy their leisure time.

"There's no doubting that the attractions of living in the city-centre is why so many people have decided to Harbourside their home. With Invicta now on the way anyone interested should register their interest."

A few minutes walk from Park Street and Queen Square, those wanting to get to Temple Meads or the legal and financial district near Bristol Bridge can hop on the water ferry which has a designated stop outside the development.

The centre is only a few minutes walk away and there are numerous restaurants and bars close by.

Boasting stunning views of the harbour out towards Brunel's ss Great Britain, The Matthew and the countryside that surrounds the city Harbourside has become a real benefit to the city and is something the people of Bristol should not only make the most of but be proud of for years to come.
