Developers accelerate revival of Bristol’s Centre Square with plans for offices, apartments, retail

This week, the city’s downtown committee discussed a proposal for a 30,000-square-foot office building to be constructed at the corner of Hope and Riverside streets on a currently vacant parcel. When approved, the plan next goes to the economic and community development committee with plans for a letter of intent to be signed by the summer. Interest in Centre Square has intensified in the last year, Zoppo-Sassu said, especially with more new projects planned for the areas around it. ByCarrier is springboarding from its recently completed Residences on Main project, a 32-unit, high-end building that has seen high demand for rentals, Zoppo-Sassu said. D’Amato Construction also intends to relocate its headquarters into the renovated Barnes building at Main and South streets, and plans are underway for a “green” at Centre Square for gatherings, farmers markets and outdoor performances.
