News on the high levels of interest follows the opening of two brand new show apartments at Crest Nicholson's Harbourside development which has helped attract further discerning house hunters interested to see for themselves the range and variety of properties up for grabs.
The latest phase, which is called Invicta, is the last piece of the jigsaw at the development which has transformed what was a derelict wasteland into an aspiring new quarter of the city where people can live, work and enjoy their leisure time.
Reflecting the changing needs of the city, Harbourside has helped alter Bristol's image from a world renowned working port to a place which is still known across the globe for more creative reasons especially with the likes of Aardman Animations, the BBC's Natural History unit and Banksy all coming from the city.
Invicta is the latest phase at the development, and the name was inspired by Bristol's historic links with the city of Porto which was also known as Cidade Invicta.
Comprising 170 one, two and three-bedroom high-end apartments plus a number of one-bedroom studios the phase is spread over five floors all of which have proved popular from those looking to live next to the city's historic floating harbour.
A pedestrian link called Millennium Promenade will run from the Millennium Square to the Harbour Inlet providing views of the ss Great Britain and will complete the famous Brunel Mile and the engineer's vision for uninterrupted travel from London to the new world in America.
Although there are now quicker and easier ways to get to America there is no doubting the importance of this phase which also includes a rich ecological landscape.
Susan Young, sales and marketing director at Crest Nicholson said: "We're delighted with the response so far to Invicta and this proves that interest in the development remains strong.
"Not only has the Bristol property market proved resilient over recent years, but shows that if you have the right properties, in a good location and at a good price then they will be attractive for those wanting to buy.
"Harbourside has consistently sold well and vindicates our vision which we always knew would do well."
Harbourside's attractiveness is strengthened by the fact that it's a short walk from Park Street and Queen Square and those wanting to get to Temple Meads can hop on the water ferry which has a stop outside the development.
There are also numerous restaurants, bars and galleries close by which all adds to the varied and mixed nature of the development.
Located on Canons Way, Invicta is spread over five floors and the new marketing suite is open every day from 10am to 5pm.
Prices at Invicta, the latest phase of the Harbourside development, start at £164,950.
