Mixed-use tower one of three options being considered for regeneration of St Paul's district of Bristol

This 40-storey eco-tower could be built in Bristol as part of the regeneration of the St Paul’s area.

The 600 ft tower is one of three options under consideration for the redevelopment of Dove Lane project in the city.

A consortia including Bristol-based developer PG Enterprises, Places for People and consultant RPS have drawn up a shortlist of architects to work up the plans.

The site will include 753,000 sq ft of homes, offices and businesses, as well as a doctor’s surgery, outdoor performance area and possibly a 100-room hotel.

The scheme is due to go in for planning early in 2008.
