MDL Marinas has advised us that the main surface car park at Ocean Village (between the Admiral’s Quay development and the Harbour Lights Picturehouse) will be closed for a period of 3-4 weeks commencing 11th November 2013.  The closure will allow the initial site investigations for the Southampton Harbour Hotel development to take place.

We are pleased to advise that MDL has now entered into an Agreement for Lease with Southampton Harbour Hotel Ltd for the site of the hotel and adjacent mixed use scheme with a view to the development commencing in 2014. [...] Prior to Southampton Harbour Hotel Ltd taking possession of the site and proceeding with the development they require to undertake a range of site investigations, which will enable them to finalise the detailed structural design of the development.

Multiple corroborating sources indicate that ABP is extremely close to commencing work on a new multi-storey car park in the Eastern Docks for storing import/export cars in transit.  Although a number of these structures already exist elsewhere in the docks, this will be the first multi-storey compound of this type being built in very close proximity to some residential properties in Ocean Village.  ABP have apparently stated that it will be of a comparable height to similar structures in the area, which would suggest that it will be four storeys high.
