Proposals for a mixed-use development welcome in designated regeneration area.
An opportunity has arisen to purchase a former Molson Coors Brewery in Burton-on-Trent and create a unique residential-led mixed-use development in the heart of the town.
The 5.77-acre site in Station Street, is situated five minutes’ walk to either the town centre or Burton-on-Trent railway station, and includes significant features of interest including a keg fountain and large copper kettle.
Built in 1864 the brewery comprises of a red brick complex consisting of a mix of two to four storey buildings. The brewery was previously connected to the still active Molson Coors site across Station Street by an overhead bridge until the last brew took place in December 2017 and the buildings were decommissioned the following year. Two of the buildings on site are Grade II listed due to their architectural or historic interest.
The former brewery is part of the Borough Road Conservation area and has been earmarked to be part of the East Staffordshire Town Centre Regeneration programme, which includes plans for pedestrianising part of Station Street.
Nick Hammond, director in the Advisory & Restructuring team at Colliers International, said: “This is an ideal opportunity to create a unique development in a location which is already primed for regeneration. The local authority is looking for high-quality residential-led proposals, which complements the heritage of the site, while also boosting the local economy with potential for units along Station Street. This site is a rare opportunity to make a significant investment in the area.”
A spokesperson for Molson Coors added: “We are working closely with the local authority and Colliers to ensure the right investment is secured to turn this historic site into a quality residential-led development. It is incredibly important to us that this site, which is an important part of our and Burton’s heritage, is developed in an appropriately sympathetic way and adds real value to our local community in Burton.”
Nearby Burton-on-Trent railway station offers regular cross-country trains, which call to Derby, Leicester, Birmingham and Nottingham. East Midlands airport is also only 25 minutes away by car.
