We will revitalise the arcade and upgrade the retail units, bringing in new tenants for the empty shops. We will seek a mixture of uses, from a food store and other types of retailers, to cafes, bars and restaurants.
Our plans will introduce new landscape and seating areas to the existing central square, and create a new, improved entrance with retail either side, which will act as a public gateway to the centre.
An independent cinema operator and a national gym chain have already expressed serious interest in the revitalised development and we are excited about the potential of St Catherine’s Place to become a focal point for both local residents and visitors.
The site’s mix of heritage, a new neighbourhood and exciting retail and leisure space will make for one of the most exciting developments in Bristol – and all just 20 minutes’ walk from the city centre.
Bristol is home to many independent and successful retail businesses. The team at St Catherine’s Place would like to hear from local operators who might be interested in moving here and helping to spearhead the revitalisation of this part of Bedminster. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to our agents, Alder King.
“There’s a fantastic opportunity to create a new retail and leisure destination for an underserved part of Bedminster, which will not only help reinvigorate St Catherine’s Place, but also support the wider area in East Street and Bedminster” Charles Russell-Smith from Alder King
The Royal Manor of Bedminster comprised all the land south of the river Avon, from the Avon Gorge up to Brislington. According to the Domesday Book, the Manor had 25 villains, 3 slaves and 27 smallholders with 10 ploughs, 1 cob, 9 cattle, 22 pigs and 115 sheep.
