Urban Splash Newsplash - October 2018
Welcome to our October edition of Newsplash - a monthly round-up of all things Urban Splash, featuring new homes, scheme launches, commercial news and much more.
This month, we've got updates on new homes in Bristol and Birmingham as well as our rooftop Pods at Lister Mills in Bradford. We release our new book "It Will Never Work", and take a look around our US Modular factory where we're busy creating Town House for our new neighbourhood at Port Loop in Birmingham.

This Saturday, 6 October, we’re launching our brand new homes at Copper Building in Bristol. Prices start at just £150,000, with one and two bedroom apartments and dual-aspect penthouses on offer.
