Riverside at Coal Orchard is a new-build mixed use development in Taunton town centre, completed in November 2022, comprising 40 residential flats and 18,000 sq ft of commercial space. The development is located adjacent to a 40 vehicle public car park, overlooking the river Tone.

Set within the prime riverside location for the town, Riverside at Coal Orchard is at the very heart of Taunton’s cultural quarter. Within this thriving hub, Riverside at Coal Orchard’s mixed use development is complemented by Somerset’s iconic cricket ground, the surrounding boutique shopping area and the Brewhouse Theatre and Arts Centre.

The Brewhouse Theatre and Arts Centre hosts over 300 live performances annually, supplemented by a busy cinema programme. Cricket fans regularly enjoy County Championship matches, One Day and T20 matches at the County Ground. There have also been International games played, in this 8,500 capacity County Ground.

Taunton’s prime retail pitch comprises High Street, incorporating The Orchard Shopping Centre, East Street and North Street.  Taunton’s independent quarter, just off North Street, is centred around St James Street, Riverside Place and The Courtyard. Riverside at Coal Orchard is situated between St James Street and the River Tone.

The development is close to a Morrisons supermarket and car park, which is a footfall driver.

To the north of the development is the Firepool mixed use regeneration scheme, which will link the train station with the town centre with a pedestrian route to run through Riverside at Coal Orchard. Phase 1 has completed and works are ongoing.
