Bloomridge was a wealthy district within the Lower City of Baldur's Gate located on the western half of Gray Harbor south of the Old Wall.[2] It was home to the wealthier citizens of the Lower City, the merchants, landowners and sea captains who sought a lifestyle that more closely resembled that of the wealthy patriar of the Upper City.[3]

By great feats of engineering, both structural and arcane, Bloomridge was partially built into the Old Wall that separated the Upper and Lower Cities.[1]

DescriptionEdit

The district was highlighted by the grand manor-houses that, on occasion, took up entire city blocks of Bloomridge. Between these palatial estates were cafes, restaurants and boutique shops that were connected by a series of open-air sweeping staircases that descended to street level. Hanging gardens, open galleries and rooftop terraces served to beautify the streets of Bloomridge even further.[1][3][4]

Many of the buildings in Bloomridge featured ground-level businesses with upper-story apartment complexes, many of which offered great views over the bay.[3] By the late 15th century DR there was little available housing and those that were open for rent were exceedingly expensive.[1]
