The site will also feature 134 apartments and penthouses.

Over 200 construction, design, and management personnel will be employed on the site, including a number of trainee and apprentice positions.

"Brewery Square has brought a vibrant new focus to the county town; a great place to visit for shopping, restaurants and bars and a very convenient place to live and work in 'the new heart of Dorchester'. The successful existing retail, restaurants, hotel and beautifully designed apartments speak for themselves."
