Bristol General Hospital.
Avonlines Screeding division has been awarded the screed package at one of Bristol’s most talked about redevelopments. Bristol General Hospital (sometimes referred to as BGH or Bristol General) was a rehabilitation hospital in Guinea Street, Harbourside, Bristol, in the south west of England. It opened in 1832, and closed in 2012. Since the sites closure, specialist heritage developers City & Country have acquired the site with planning approved to introduce a collection of 205 homes and commercial units.
The General, located in BS1 and just a short walk from the city centre and Bristol Temple Meads, offers stylish converted character homes within the original listed buildings. Many of the apartments benefit from water facing or courtyard views, allocated parking and lift access.
When complete The General will be home to a collection of 205 one to four bedroom new and converted apartments and houses. The character-filled homes, situated in the Grade II listed buildings of the former Hospital will include a converted chapel, triplex apartments with glazed upper floors and a penthouse apartment located in the unique octagonal tower, with views across the city to the Somerset countryside. The reinstatement of the original roofscapes and balconies will provide many of the apartments with their own terraces.
There are also a collection of commercial properties which have been deliberately included within the redevelopment to aid investment, economic growth and vitality within the immediate area with Michelin starred restaurant Casamia, Paco Tapas and Pi Pizzeria Restaurant now all open.
As mentioned earlier City & Country are specialist heritage developers specialising in working with the very best of Britain’s architectural heritage and sensitive landscapes. Originally founded in 1962 and based in Stanstead, Essex they have historically operated in East Anglia but have now expanded to include developments in London, South East, South West and Scotland.
