The proposed site, Whitehouse Street Industrial Intensification is located at the southern edge of Bristol City Centre. The area presents a unique and exciting opportunity to create a vibrant and sustainable new neighbourhood which incorporates best practice placemaking and sustainability principles, and delivers a significant number of new homes, employment floorspace and community facilities. The site is predominantly occupied by industrial and office uses and is designated as a Primary Industrial and Warehousing Area (PIWA). A Regeneration Framework is currently being developed to guide the transformation of this industrial area into a mixed-use community of new homes, employment and community spaces. Bristol City Council is seeking to ensure no net loss of jobs during this transformation. Bidding teams are invited to help us achieve our aspirations through proposals that will deliver an innovative industrial intensification scheme on a plot within the area that will enable high levels of both employment and residential space to successfully coexist.
Expected Land Use:
The proposed project is expected to deliver between 6,000m2 - 8,000m2 of employment floorspace, with a focus on industrial space. Engagement with existing businesses in the area is important to understand their operational requirements and how they could be accommodated within the scheme, should they wish to remain in the area.
Teams should consider how proposals will enable the employment space on this site to successfully coexist with the homes bordering the site and the new homes coming forward in the wider regeneration area.
