UK: Plans to transform Bristol's Gardiner Haskins soapworks factory site into an aparthotel, office space and 150 homes have been revealed.

Historic Bristol retailer Gardiner Haskins sold the old soapworks factory, which it had occupied for 60 years, in June this year.

The grade II-listed building was bought by developer First Base, which plans to spend £175 million on the mixed-use scheme, and will work with Bristol City Council and architects Woods Bagot to deliver it.

First Base has launched the second phase of its consultation ahead of submitting a planning application later this year.

It has shared more details about what it has planned for the site, which includes transforming the interior of the soapworks building into co-working space, with bars, cafes and restaurants on the ground floor.
