Guinness Housing Trust, a Bristol City Council housing partner, has completed a development for the vulnerable elderly as a part of a wider Bristol regeneration programme.

Lincoln Gardens, at Lawrence Hill in Bristol, provides 55 apartments for the elderly over two, three and four storey buildings with a ground floor café open to neighbours.

Fifteen of the flats have been tailored to meet the requirements of Muslim residents.

The scheme was designed by local architects Quattro and built by Leadbitter Construction.

The development is a part of Bristol City Council’s New Deal for Communities – a £50m plan to regenerate Barton Hill, the Dings, and parts of Redfield and Lawrence Hill.

The initiative will span ten years and was started in 2000.
