Designed by Manchester architectural practice Hodder + Partners, the proposed scheme includes a combination of one and two-bed flats for rent – including an affordable housing provision – within a podium and tower.
A new street will be introduced through the site making a pedestrianised connection between St. Catherine’s Place with St. John’s to the east.
Stephen Hodder, chairman of Hodder + Partners, said the scheme formed an important part of the wider masterplan for Bedminster.
“It will also act as a catalyst to the regeneration of Bedminster’s main shopping street, East Street, and how East Street connects via a regenerated Bedminster Green to the train station which is just one stop from Bristol Temple Meads.”
A spokesperson for Dandara said: “The Bedminster Green regeneration would bring more people into East Street, helping revitalise this important South Bristol retail centre.
“Bedminster is one of Bristol’s most sustainable locations for new homes. It is just one mile from the city centre and Temple Meads station, has its own train station, good existing bus services and the new Metrobus.”
A final planning proposal will be lodged with Bristol City Council shortly.
