The launch of a new mixed-use site on Everards Print Works marks next step in regeneration of Bristol's Old City
Hoardings have just gone up on Everards Print Works, a new mixed-use site in the centre of Bristol, marking the next chapter in the regeneration of the Old City.
Everards Print Works – the first scheme in the South West from developer Artisan Real Estate – will create a thriving hotel, leisure and residential quarter. On the site of the former Everards Print Works and wider NatWest Court site, the development will bring both employment and a new vibrancy to an area, previously out of use.
The site is bound by Broad Street, Nelson Street, John Street and Tower Lane and sits alongside this historic Church of St John the Baptist at the heart of Bristol’s urban street art scene. The mixed-use development will see the conversion of the former NatWest Court offices into a 255-bedroom, 4 star hotel and conference centre for Dalata Hotel Group. The unique Art Nouveau façade of the original Everards Printing Works will become the grand entrance to the hotel, with access from Broad Street.
Alongside this, flexible commercial space will accommodate co-working and retail, while 24, one-bed and two-bed residential units will bring city centre living space. Carefully planned landscaping will enhance ‘public realm’ space, opening up the site and connecting the living and working aspects of the scheme with their immediate surroundings.
Myles Thomas, regional development manager south at Artisan Real Estate, commented, “The Old City has some of the most notable historic assets in Bristol, yet they sit alongside vacant and dilapidated properties, many of which have been out of use for some time.
“The need to bring new life to this part of the city has long been recognised and moves such as the pedestrianisation of Corn Street, Clare Street and now St Stephens and St Nicholas Street have begun to change the way in which people live and work here.
“Everards Print Works marks the next step in the journey for this historic quarter. As a developer, we are well versed in this type of scheme which balances bringing historic properties back into use with the creation of new commercial and residential space.”
