Our three neighbouring buildings on Colston Street are among the first buildings that formed The Ethical Property Company in 1998. The Centre offers a mix of small office space and shops that support the local voluntary and creative community in an area that is historically famous for artisans and creative traders.

The superb location, in the heart of the Christmas Steps Arts Quarter, provides easy access to a range of local cafés and food outlets as well as all the amenities of Central Bristol.

The adjacent Colston Yard is now home to more than 100 studios, galleries and workshops - we’re proud that several of these can still be found within our Colston Street buildings.
