Brewery Square is drawing former residents back to the market town.

The £100 million regeneration project, which has transformed the brownfield site into a vibrant, thriving development, is attracting former residents back into Dorchester.

Savills, the estate agency who manage the sales of the luxury apartments on the former Eldridge Pope Brewery site, has reported record numbers of buyers returning to the area after working away to down size their property in favour of a more contemporary living environment.

Julie Mansfield, director of sales and marketing for Savills at Brewery Square, says: “The introduction of the Brewery Square development to the market town has really given the area a touch of cosmopolitan living drawing former residents back into Dorchester.

“The latest Piers Gough designs and modern interiors of the highest specification are juxtaposed with the original Grade II listed buildings, offering a taste of high quality living combined with historic architecture which is hard to rival.”

The development has sold 75 per cent of the luxury apartments available, with one building, Hop House, still to be released and four new buildings currently under construction.

The recently launched prestigious penthouse is worth £1.375 million and includes a top floor terrace made for entertaining, offering expansive views of both the countryside and the cosmopolitan Square.

Buyers have highlighted that Brewery Square offers appealing factors such as the secure basement car parking, helpful onsite concierge service, convenient proximity to shops, restaurants and an Odeon cinema, as well as easy access to two railway stations with a direct line to London Waterloo.

One, two and three bedroom apartments and penthouses are currently available in Brewery Square. Apartments start from £195,000 and prices for penthouses start from £575,000.

Trading is now well underway at Dorchester-based Brewery Square’s latest retail outlet, Avenue Interiors. Adding to Brewery Square’s portfolio of diverse retailers, Avenue Interiors offers an extensive range of homewares to Dorchester shoppers.

From furniture to lighting and giftware to clocks, Avenue Interiors is an independent retailer that provides a variety of contemporary and traditional furniture and fittings at affordable prices.

Gary Lancaster, owner of Avenue Interiors, says: “To be part of Dorchester’s newest shopping and leisure destination is great for us. We chose the town to open our store as we found that there was a gap in the market.”

He adds: “At Avenue Interiors we have traditional, contemporary and retro furniture to suit any décor and, being an independent business, we can source almost any item. We have an extensive range of unusual decorative mirrors and clocks and beautiful throws and cushions. Our large statement pieces, such as giant enameled fruit, black bear drink stands and a life size Dave The Dog are beloved by designers and the design conscious.”

Charlotte Spracklen, centre manager at Brewery Square, says: “We’re keen to support independent retailers and it’s great to have Avenue Interiors join our prestigious retail line-up. Brewery Square has lots to offer visitors. With a mix of shops, restaurants, leisure venues and residential facilities as well as family-focused events throughout the year, Brewery Square is fast becoming a ‘must’ for people to visit.”
