Award-winning housebuilder, Crest Nicholson, today welcomed the Mayor of Southampton and local dignitaries to its Centenary Quay development, to celebrate the final pour of concrete in the construction of its landmark tower. Overlooking the River Itchen, the tower will be the tallest building in Southampton, standing at a total of 27 stories.
The ceremony was attended by a number of key local stakeholders, including Crest Nicholson Chief Executive, Peter Truscott; the Mayor of Southampton, Councillor Alex Houghton; local Councillor, Warwick Payne; and local MP, Royston Smith.
The event marks an important milestone for the new community at Centenary Quay, which is now 90% complete, with its final phase due to launch in Winter 2022. Home to a vibrant and established community, the development is ideally situated on the bank of the River Itchen, offering a premium waterside location and surrounded by public open space. A new destination for Southampton, residents will benefit from a number of amenities on their doorstep including restaurants, a coffee shop, gym and beauty salon.
Peter Truscott, Chief Executive at Crest Nicholson, commented: “We are proud to be finalising the construction of Southampton’s tallest building. Centenary Quay is a vibrant development that demonstrates our commitment to building sustainable communities that will benefit residents and the local area for generations to come.”
Councillor Alex Houghton, Mayor of Southampton, said: “Today marks a great milestone in the Centenary Quay project and I am delighted to have been involved in the topping out ceremony of Southampton’s tallest building.
“As well as providing new homes in Southampton, Centenary Quay offers residents and the surrounding community a wide range of benefits. I look forward to seeing the waterside scheme complete and welcoming new residents to this growing community.”
Councillor Jeremy Moulton, Deputy Leader of Southampton City Council and Cabinet Member for Growth, commented: “Projects like Centenary Quay are an important factor in our delivery of new homes across the city that not only provide affordable housing but also provide better options for home ownership which make home buying more accessible.
“This is especially important as Southampton has been identified as one of 20 cities’ nationally to increase housing targets by 35% in support of the government’s target of delivering 300,000 homes in England per year.”
Centenary Quay offers a collection of one and two-bedroom apartments, ideal for first time buyers and young professionals. The final phase, being released in Winter 2022, will also include a number of three-bedroom houses. The stylish new homes, many of which feature open-plan living spaces and balconies, have been designed with modern living in mind. A stone’s throw from the development are Lidl, Boots, Woolston Community Centre and Woolston Library, plus, the highly regarded WestQuay shopping centre in Southampton City Centre is just a few minutes away by car or bus, home to nearly 100 popular shops and many more bars, cafes and restaurants.
