Waterman sustainability lead on 84-hectare Mayflower Quarter
Waterman are delighted to have been appointed to provide a sustainability strategy for one of the largest regeneration opportunities in the UK as part of a dynamic new masterplan for Southampton.
Mayflower Quarter’s 84-hectare site, extending from Southampton train station to the waterfront and adjacent to the old town centre, is set to undergo a complete transformation by introducing a sustainable new, mixed-use urban neighbourhood.
Specialist masterplanners, AR Urbanism, will be leading the design team to align with the city’s Local Plan for the future prosperity of its world-class residential, commercial and retail facilities over the next 20 years and beyond.
Councillor Christopher Hammond, Leader of Southampton City Council, said in a recent statement; “The regeneration of this area of the city will enhance our reputation not just as a port city, but as a destination city. This is a major opportunity for investors, developers and ultimately occupiers to become part of the success story that’s unfolding here. The Mayflower Quarter will leave a lasting legacy for Southampton which will benefit all who live, work or visit this great city.”
Paul Moore, Waterman’s Regional Director of London and Southern Counties, commented; “We are delighted to be working collaboratively with all the stakeholders to devise a holistic sustainability strategy for Mayflower Quarter, and are pleased to see our sustainability expert Chloe Souque take the lead on supporting Southampton City Council to achieve their ambition to become carbon neutral by 2030. This pivotal opportunity will allow Southampton to thrive for generations to come, and it is an important addition to Waterman’s expanding portfolio in the Central South region.”
The masterplan preparations are predicted to take up to 12 months, completing in December 2020.
