One of Southampton’s largest regeneration schemes has reached a key milestone with the completion and handover of Phase 1. The re-development of the city’s old fruit and vegetable market design by HGP Architects provides 279 one and two bedroom apartments and flexible commercial space.
The project is the first “Build to Rent” development in the city with all the apartments owned by one company and is part of the overall strategy for the redevelopment of this part of the city.
HGP worked closely with the City Council, National Regional Property Group and PMC.
Allan Gordon, managing director of National Regional Property Group, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have reached this key milestone just 18 months after the first spade went into the ground at Bow Square.
“Our contractors at PMC have done a fantastic job and we’re pleased to report that phases two and three are moving ahead at pace. At this rate, we’re well on-track to complete the entire development by the end of summer next year.”
The development is one of seven ‘VIP’ projects earmarked by Southampton City Council.
