Go-ahead given for Southampton mixed-use scheme

December 4, 2019 by NSC in Weekly News
Developer, asset and property management company FI Real Estate Management, has had its extensive plans to regenerate Nelson Gate unanimously approved by Southampton City Council.

The company said the mixed-use development will help transform one of the key gateways into the Hampshire city.

Located near to Southampton Central Station, the scheme comprises the refurbishment of existing 2,090m² office space blended with a number of architecturally striking new build structures, including the creation of 13,700m² of residential, 3,700m² of new office space and approximately 900m² of retail space.

The outline planning approval is for a 20-storey residential tower, containing 110 apartments, as well as commercial facilities at the ground and lower ground floor levels. Adjoining, will be an 11-storey hotel with 225 bedrooms.

Detailed planning permission was also granted to enhance the office facilities on the site. The approved plans will allow for the provision of new Grade A office space to be built, incorporating a roof terrace for use by office tenants, as well as the refurbishment of existing office buildings.

The planning application for the redevelopment of Nelson Gate was submitted after a consultation event earlier this year which gained strong support from residents and local stakeholders.

The scheme has been designed by Ellis Williams Architects and planning consultants WYG.
