Plans submitted to redevelop former brewery site in Bristol

3 September 2018

Nash Partnership has submitted plans to transform a former brewery site in the heart of Southville in Bristol to provide new homes, co-working space and retail units.

The proposed scheme includes 94 distinctive new homes and 2,000 sq ft of co-working and commercial space.

Located on the 0.5 ha brownfield site of the old Thomas Baynton/Ashton Gate Brewery, the plot is currently used for warehousing and workshop space. The development is proposed by The Old Brewery MCC LLP, a joint venture between Change Real Estate and Cannon Family Office, to deliver an exemplary scheme which complements the character of North Street.

Given the site’s location, the development will use the opportunity to create a new ‘gateway’ into North Street from Ashton Road and will act as a catalyst for the redevelopment of adjacent sites.

The scheme’s design will draw on the local context and surrounding character areas while echoing the site’s industrial heritage. Existing and locally important heritage asset buildings with a sense of character will be retained, including the Byzantine Weighbridge House, Gatehouse and its stone piers. The new buildings look to complement the heritage and design of the existing architecture on the site and within the local context.

Consultation events with local groups, individuals and businesses helped to shape and evolve the final proposals. The resulting scheme will provide a mix of much-needed high quality market and affordable housing which will spur the continued regeneration of this area.
