A £450 million development which will transform the landscape of Southampton’s waterfront is progressing, showcasing the international face of the city as a great place to live, work and enjoy. The waterfront will be revitalised, with a new and extended Mayflower Park, speciality shops, offices, leisure venues, apartments and waterside attractions.
These will all be linked by pedestrian promenades and piers – a celebration of the city’s maritime spirit. Development of the site, which is owned by Southampton City Council, the Crown Estate and Associated British Ports, will provide a permanent and improved home for the Southampton Boat Show.
What’s happening now?
Morgan Sindall Investments Limited (MSIL) is the preferred developer for this major development.
