It follows the final sales at Crest Nicholson's Harbourside development where househunters keen to live next to the city's historic floating harbour have snapped up the last few properties on The Crescent.
Drawn to Harbourside because of its spectacular views overlooking the historic floating harbour and its close proximity to all the amenities of the city centre, interest at the prestigious waterfront development has remained strong despite the difficult economic climate.
Transforming the area previously known as Canon's Marsh the award-winning development is widely regarded as being the best example of inner-city regeneration anywhere in the UK.
Including a mix places where people can live, work and enjoy their leisure time the development has created a landscaped waterside which has opened up the area to the public and reflects the needs of a modern city where the harbour has become a leisure asset rather than a working port.
This includes a new Harbour Inlet and pontoons so that owners can moor their boats on the historic floating harbour.
With its spectacular views, proximity to the city-centre, high-quality finish of the apartments plus their 'oversized' feel means those looking to live in the city-centre were hard pushed to find anything comparable across the whole of Bristol.
So it comes as little surprise to the sales team at Crest Nicholson that the last properties have now gone.
Susan Young, sales and marketing director at Crst Nicholson said: "We're delighted to have reached this milestone not only in the development's history but that of Bristol.
"The fact that we've sold out is a clear vindication that if a development is in the right location, offering a range of stylish properties and is priced competitively then it will appeal to buyers.
"Harbourside living is all about lifestyle, not only do residents have everything on their doorstep, the views are fantastic.
"The new modern Harbourside has a real cosmopolitan feel to it and like a lot of UK towns and cities many people have been attracted not only by the inner-city buzz but also the unparalleled convenience it provides.
"There's no doubting that the attractions of living in the city-centre is why so many people have decided to make the award-winning development their home."
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 including Bordeaux Quay, Chinese restaurant Zen and Pizza Express.
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.
