The current 1970’s red brick building is home to music school BIMM Institute which is relocating to purpose-built facilities elsewhere in Bristol at St James House.

The regeneration of this area includes mixed-use schemes Finzels Reach and The Assembly. There are an increasing number of people who live and work in this neighbourhood, including the new occupants of Bristol’s tallest building Castle Park View which has 375 new homes just one minute walk away. Among the existing homes are Temple Back Apartments which sit opposite the site on the other side of the Floating Harbour, and Ferryman’s Court, along Queen Street.
