Admiral’s Quay Development Approved

Admirals Quay PromenadeBack in January (17th Jan) HGP architects were granted planning consent to complete the Admirals Quay development. A statement on their website reads:

The site will now realise its full potential as an exciting mixed-use development situated on the marina, giving the City a waterfront destination to be proud of. The design proposal is focused around three high quality buildings, the western one (Building 1) being 26-storeys, the central one (Building 2) 16-storeys and the eastern one (Building 3) 9-storeys. An elevated terrace between buildings 1 and 2 provides an exciting area with provision for up to 8 restaurants and seating spilling out onto the promenade, with residents enjoying a high landscaped terrace at the second floor level. The development primarily focuses on the marina frontage and creates plenty of opportunity to relax and enjoy the views.

The tallest residential tower will act as a landmark and will be the beginning of a new skyline for the City of Southampton, while the surrounding public space will give more of a human scale and will help the area to become a real destination.
