The much-anticipated first new homes at The Chocolate Factory in Greenbank, Bristol have been released for sale with families expected to be moving in this Spring.

An attractive terrace of seven, three-bedroom homes with south-facing gardens along Co-Operation Road, with prices from £395,950, have gone on sale from developers, Generator South West, through the company’s agents, CJ Hole and Savills.

The Chocolate Factory sees the transformation of the former Elizabeth Shaw works that has stood derelict and empty for more than a decade and brings life back into the heart of BS5 by creating homes, workspaces and community facilities.

The exciting new development includes a public square and direct access to the Bristol and Bath Railway Path, enabling people to commute easily into the centre of Bristol on foot or bicycle.

The seven, new three-bedroom homes will boast German-engineered kitchens by Stoltz with integrated appliances.
The developers have backed South West businesses in the specification of the luxury bathrooms. Sanitary ware is being supplied by Bath-based Roper Rhodes, and brassware taps and shower equipment supplied by Vado, who are based near Cheddar.
Jason Schofield, Development Director of Generator South West, said: “We are delighted to have reached this milestone in the development despite all the difficulties that everyone has faced through Covid-19.

“We have a show suite that people can view by appointment to see how this first release of homes fits into the entire development and to see the specification of the kitchens and bathrooms. There has been a lot of interest in the development from local people already and now we are in the position where we can help people secure their new home.

“Greenbank is a great place to live and has a fantastic community that represents the best of Bristol’s enterprising spirit. People who move into The Chocolate Factory will become part of this strong community and will have some of the best independent Bristol businesses, green spaces, primary schools right on their doorstep and with easy access to the city centre.”

A total of one hundred and forty new homes are being created at The Chocolate Factory, including houses and apartments.
Residential sales are being handled jointly by CJ Hole’s Redfield office and Savills’ New Homes department.

CJ Hole are also handling all enquiries for the thirty-six shared ownership homes at the development on behalf of the housing association, Abri. The first eight apartments are now all sold and the next ten will be released at the end of January with prices from £84,000 for a 40% share.
