Construction begins on Southampton’s Bargate regeneration project after £132 million of funding completed.
The development will be built around the City Walls and The Bargate, a 12th Century gatehouse in the city centre.
Developer Tellon Capital believes the scheme will “provide an exciting new chapter for one of the most historic parts of Southampton”.
James Burchell, Partner at Tellon Capital, said: “Our development will seek to improve the setting of The Bargate and City Walls and provide retail units along with much-needed new housing in a highly sustainable location. Crucially, our scheme also responds to the changing world created by the pandemic, to ensure we have a scheme that respects the past but is also fit for the future.
“We would like to thank residents and stakeholders for their continued support and we’re looking forward to delivering a high-quality scheme that benefits the whole city.”
