Managing Director of Inland Homes Gary Skinner said: “Welcoming our first residents to Chapel Riverside was a wonderful milestone for us, and now the spades are in the ground for the third phase, we can look forward to meeting more happy residents when this phase is completed in 2020. We’re really thrilled at the progress being made on this exciting, landmark site, and are delighted that our partnership with Southampton City Council continues to work so well.”

Councillor Christopher Hammond, Leader of Southampton City Council, said: “The Ground Breaking ceremony for the third phase of the Chapel Riverside residential development heralds a key milestone in another of Southampton City Council’s ‘Very Important Projects (VIPs)’. Our ongoing partnership with Inland Homes plc is part of a radical scheme of improvement in this area of prime waterfront land in Southampton, and is integral to our ambitious plan for economic growth and development within the city.

“The creation of over 450 new homes at the Chapel Riverside site and a further 350 at the Meridian Waterside development form part of the Itchen Riverside VIP area, which is one of seven key areas re-shaping the landscape of the city, creating desirable waterfront dwellings and accompanying landscapes, improving access, creating new jobs and promoting further investment in Southampton.”

The Chapel Riverside site is being transformed with 300m of river flood defences, and the reconstruction of a new underground surface water storage tank for Southern Water. The scheme will include residential properties in a mix of heights and building types, and will feature a new square with cafes, restaurants and shops as well as spaces for retained and enhanced marine industry and activities.
