BNP Paribas markets Bristol General Hospital

October 8, 2010

University Hospitals Bristol-NHS Foundation Trust has instructed BNP Paribas Real Estate to market Bristol General Hospital (BGH), Guinea Street, Bristol.

The 2.93 acre site includes hospital buildings comprising 188,483 sq ft and is available for sale freehold, offering a unique mixed-use redevelopment opportunity for residential, office, retail and leisure.

Peter White of BNP Paribas Real Estate said: “BGH will become surplus to the requirements of the Trust, when South Bristol Community Hospital opens at Hengrove. This is an unrivalled opportunity to acquire such an iconic building, with vacant possession anticipated in May 2012.”

“The site has potential to accommodate a wide variety of sustainable new uses and thus, breathe a new life into the local community. It has already generated considerable interest, and with all its advantages, including a central location and excellent public transport connections, we are confident of a good deal.”

Andrew Scott, senior development surveyor, BNPPRE commented: “This is a very exciting instruction. Bristol General Hospital represents one of the biggest redevelopment sites in the city and we see it as a potential catalyst to stimulate a much wider ranging regeneration of the western Redcliffe area”.

The site is located just 0.75 kms south of Bristol city centre and is one of the largest Grade II listed buildings in Bristol’s Harbourside area. The various hospital buildings vary in scale and style and most have sizeable basement areas.

Enclosed by Lower Guinea Street, Guinea Street and Commercial Road, it is well connected to public transport. The main entrance and vehicular access is from Guinea Street.
