We plan to comprehensively redevelop the existing site to provide:
New ground-floor frontages – including cafes and restaurants – will all revitalise the existing shopping arcade, creating an attractive new frontage onto Dalby Avenue.
“We’re aiming to create a place with a real sense of character and a strong connection to the community that already exists in the area. It will be a busy, vibrant place to live with plenty of energy, and one that enhances Bedminster.” Leslie Jones Architecture
We are converting this former office block, which has been vacant for many years, into one and two-bedroom apartments, which are due to be completed in late 2018 / early 2019.
Planning permission has been given to add two storeys on the top of the existing building, enabling us to create 54 new homes, which will be offered for sale and are aimed at the local market.
In March 2018, we produced new proposals for the comprehensive redevelopment of the remaining site, which we shared with the public.
This mixed-use scheme would create 232 new homes in a new stepped 21-storey tower and two separate secondary buildings of seven storeys and four storeys. On street level, the plans proposed a range of leisure uses new to the area, including cafes and workspace, contributing to the revitalisation of the existing arcade and regeneration of the wider East Street area.
A sequence of public spaces would be created, widening the footpaths and softening the edges to provide new routes through the development and improve the environment for residents and visitors.
The scheme takes account of the needs of proposed and existing neighbouring occupiers and aims to set an exemplary standard for Bristol in terms of its overall quality and sustainability.
We are now reviewing everyone’s comments and suggestions and our team of architects, planners, project managers and consultants are revising the various options. We hope to submit a planning application in late summer 2018.
