Royal Pier Waterfront

Royal Pier illustration March 2014

The development of Royal Pier is one step closer, since the signing of the Development Agreement by all partners in March 2014. The next stage of the process will involve public consultation and the preparation and submission of a planning application for a comprehensive mixed-use development of the site, with which RPW (Southampton) Limited will now proceed.

This £400 million development will transform the landscape of Southampton’s waterfront, 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.

RPW (Southampton) Limited (a joint venture company owned by Morgan Sindall Investments Limited (“MSIL”) and funders Lucent Group (“Lucent”)) is the developer for this major development.
