New apartments for sale in Bristol at Factory No.1, Bedminster. Launching in Summer 2019, register your interest now.

Originally known as Wills Factory No.1, the factory opened in 1886 and covered approximately 1.75 acres and included the street frontage that, today, forms Consort House. The factory continued to expand throughout the 19th and early 20th century and, in 1908, following the amalgamation of Wills with 12 other British tobacco manufacturers, Regent House was constructed as the headquarters of the resulting Imperial Tobacco Company.

City & Country is creating a chic range of one, two and three bedroom apartments as well as completely revitalising the Imperial Arcade to create a new vibrant community. The development comprises both unique conversion properties in the historic buildings and stylish new build apartments; key to the design is to create an “urban oasis” with beautiful stepped gardens of elegant shrubbery and planting.

Imperial Arcade, which runs underneath Consort House, is going to be completely re-vitalised, featuring contemporary aluminium frame shop fronts, public art and beautiful lantern lighting. The vision for the new arcade is to have a variety of independent shops and restaurants spilling out on to the walkway, creating a vibrant and buzzy space for residents, and the local community, to enjoy.

This exciting new development is set to launch in Summer 2019. Please register your interest to be the first to hear of launch dates and property releases.

Factory No.1 was built between 1884 and 1886 by Sir Frank Wills, utilising red Cattybrook brick, limestone and slate and continues to be one of Bedminster’s most recognisable landmarks. Initially, the factory was constructed fronting onto Bedminster Parade, bounded to the west by the rear of properties fronting onto Lombard Street, to the north by Brook Street, and to the east by a timber yard.
