Taking Admiral’s Quay to New Heights

Admiral's Quay Consultation - Board CA planning application for what would be Southampton’s tallest building has been submitted to Southampton Council and, if approved, it’s to be built right here at Ocean Village.

The BBC News website reports that:

Allied Developments wants to build the residential 28-storey tower, with 299 homes, at the city’s Ocean Village Admiral’s Quay site. The £74m scheme marks the final element of the area’s regeneration and also includes two other smaller blocks. The developer said it has already consulted with residents and expected a planning decision by early 2012.

It is thought the project could bring up to 200 jobs to the city. Leader of the Conservative-led council Royston Smith said: “This is a great boost for Southampton’s waterfront and will bring further life to Ocean Village and valuable jobs to the city. ”I am confident this will have a positive impact on the area, becoming a catalyst for further investment in the future.” Peter Morton, from Allied Developments, said: “The tallest residential tower will act as a landmark and will be the beginning of a new skyline for the city of Southampton.”
