MAJOR DEVELOPMENT NEARS COMPLETION
Bristol Together CIC is close to completing the new-build development of ten 2-bedroom apartments developed out of the shell of an old motel.
The site, on Shirehampton High Street, is a £1 million plus development - the largest project undertaken by Bristol Together to date.
All ten properties, in the newly named 'Brigstowe Apartments' will be on sale in the early summer of 2017.
BRISTOL CITY COUNCIL CONTRACT
Bristol Together has been commissioned by Bristol City Council to repair and renovate up to 30 empty Council houses that will then be used to house homeless families.
Eight of the properties have already been brought back into use, and two of Bristol Together's most experienced employees have had their first chance to work as site foremen.
BRISTOL MAYOR VISIT
Mayor of Bristol, George Ferguson, has visited two new basement conversions carried out by Bristol Together. The two properties are owned by Bristol City Council but have never been lived in. Thanks to the work of Bristol Together CIC both will be sold on the market for a combined value of nearly £700 000
£3 MILLION AND COUNTING
The combined sale prices of properties refurbished by Bristol Together has exceeded £3 million. Many of these buildings have been empty for over two years, and in some cases we have created new homes by converting basements that have never been lived in.
FRESH START FOR WILL
One of Bristol Together's employees will today start life as a self-employed contractor specialising in kitchen fittings. Will has already gained a huge amount of experience installing new kitchens in properties across the city that we have brought back into use.
MIDLANDS TOGETHER FUND RAISING SUCCESS
We are very pleased to announce that Midlands Together CIC has successfully completed a £3 million social investment bond issue.
The support from social investors and charitable trusts, will enable us to create employment for ex-offenders across the west Midlands region. We are also confident that the team in the Midlands will not only bring empty properties back into use, but develop plans to create new social and affordable housing too.
