Project Vision of Bristol Works!

Our vision includes new opportunities for economic development, community-building, and an infusion of the entrepreneurial and innovative spirit for which Bristol has been known for hundreds of years.

You will see that we are focusing on four key sectors:

Our original vision has already come to life, with completed renovations and plans for new construction as follows:

Phase One
Phase One

Included the complete renovation of one half of a 10,000 square foot building on the south end of the campus. This building now houses the Addison Northeast Supervisory Union (ANESU), and the Bristol Works! administrative offices. 5,000 square feet still remains to be leased in this building. 

Phase Two
Phase Two

This phase has seen the conversion of existing manufacturing and warehouse space into a mix of manufacturing and other uses.

In order to ramp up production of its baked goods for wider distribution, the owners of The Bristol Bakey and Café have now installed a new commercial bakery in a section of one of the buildings. Another section of that building will soon be home to Aqua Vitea, a local Kombucha manufacturer.

Vermont Bicycle Tours currently houses its administrative offices on our campus, and Mountain Health, a local primary care medical group plans to join the Bristol Works! family of health care practitioners later this year.

Porter Medical Center’s decision to relocate some of its primary care and internal medicine practices to the Bristol Works! campus occurred during this phase, with plans moving forward for a move later this year.

We still seek one or more alternative energy businesses to utilize remaining square footage in our manufacturing space.

 Phase Three
Phase Three

The housing phase. The plan calls for a variety of mixed income, intergenerational housing units of compact size and scale. We are planning affordable options for area employees, retirees, and anyone who wants to live in a mixed-age neighborhood within walking distance of the downtown, the recreation park and the high school.
