What's happening now?
The development of Royal Pier is one step closer, since the signing of the Development Agreement by all partners in March 2014.
The first round of public consultation took place in the summer of 2014, with further constulation planned in the autumn. The preparation and submission of a planning application for a comprehensive mixed-use development of the site, with which RPW (Southampton) Limited will then proceed.
This £400 million development will transform the landscape of Southampton’s waterfront, showcasing the international face of the city as a great place to live, work and enjoy.
The waterfront will be revitalised; Mayflower Park will be recreated and extended, while speciality shops, offices, leisure venues, apartments and waterside attractions will be scattered along the shoreline. The park will become a high quality public space offering spectacular views of the water and pretty southern skies.
These will all be linked by pedestrian promenades and piers – a celebration of the city’s maritime spirit. Development of the site, which is owned by Southampton City Council, the Crown Estate and Associated British Ports, will provide a permanent and improved home for the Southampton Boat Show.
RPW (Southampton) Limited (a joint venture company owned by Morgan Sindall Investments Limited (“MSIL”) and funders Lucent Group (“Lucent”)) is the developer for this major development.
