Plans approved for Residential development

Plans have been passed by Bristol City Council for The Old Brewery in Southville, Bristol.

The new development, which is being brought forward by The Old Brewery MCC LLP, is a joint venture partnership between Change Real Estate and Cannon Family Office.

The residential-led development, which is located approximately 300m from Ashton Gate Stadium, will include 18,000 sqft of commercial space and 107 units. Change Real Estate aim to deliver an exemplary scheme that will provide a mix of market and affordable housing, and create a catalyst for the continued development and regeneration of this part of south Bristol.

Designed by architects The Nash Partnership to reference the area’s industrial red brick buildings, the apartments will be in two blocks of seven and eight residential floors situated within the southern part of the site

The development is centred around two landscaped courtyards, the first linking North Street to other parts of the development, whilst the second will be a private, green, secure space for use by residents. Promising to be an exciting place to live and work, The Old Brewery, will include pedestrianised areas, terraces, courtyards, as well as a strong focus on public art.

The Old Brewery MCC also hopes to continue its relationship with Upfest, Europe’s largest free street art festival, to create an ever changing bold and colourful landscape within the development.

Ron Persaud, director of Change Real Estate says,

“The Old Brewery will 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.”

Ron continues, “North Street is a vibrant, bustling and diverse area. With local businesses that include the Bristol Beer Factory, the Brewery Theatre and the Tobacco Factory, The Old Brewery will contribute to the creative character of the neighbourhood.”

The site has recently been sold to Abri Housing Association with CRE retaining a development management role to assist with the disposal of the commercial space.
