Shops: Cargo 2 to be extended
Seven new retailers will be coming to Cargo 2 including the much-anticipated arrival of new burger restaurant Lemonade.
Eight further converted shipping containers will be added to the block which opened in May behind M Shed and has since proved incredibly popular.
Lemonade will take up a single unit, alongside other new businesses due to be announced soon which are set to have an emphasis on independent lifestyle and fashion.
Umberslade director Stuart Hatton said: “We have had huge interest in Cargo from across the city and beyond, and this new extension would give us the opportunity to meet this demand.
“It’s already shaping up to be another exciting summer for Wapping Wharf. It is fantastic to see people from Bristol and beyond really embracing Cargo and the wider independent retail offer within the quarter.”
The Bristol Chesemonger on the ground floor of Cargo 2 was forced to close for a few days during last week’s heatwave as the single shipping container unit was too hot for the cheese inside.
Still due to open in Cargo 2 are Big Juice on the ground floor and Sholay Indian Kitchen on the first floor, with the extension due to go at the Prince Street end of the development.
