The site of an old brewery on North Street in Southville, Bristol is set to be transformed into new homes, co-working space, and retail units if planners at Bristol City Council give the go-ahead.
To be known as The Old Brewery, Southville, developers have submitted plans to the council for a high quality, residential-led development that not only reflects the vibrant character of the area but importantly echoes its industrial heritage. 94 new homes are planned, together with 2,000 sq m of co-working and commercial space.
Located on the site of the old Ashton Gate Brewery and Thomas Baynton’s Brewery, and most recently home to short-term and underutilised warehousing space, the new development is being proposed by The Old Brewery MCC LLP, a joint venture partnership between Change Real Estate and Cannon Family Office.
The developers aspire to deliver a scheme that will provide a mix of market and affordable housing, and create a catalyst for the continued development and regeneration in this part of south Bristol.
Ron Persaud, director of Change Real Estate said: “We’ve had a very constructive dialogue from the outset and throughout the pre-application process, working closely with the planners at Bristol City Council and local community groups to fully understand everyone’s needs and develop an approach that meets everyone’s aspirations and expectations.
“Proposals for The Old Brewery reflect the rich industrial heritage of the site, providing employment space in the form of flexible co-working opportunities, creating new homes and preserving buildings of historical interest. With the Old Brewery we want to help create a community that stands the test of time.”
