Site Details

Developer: National Regional Property Group


Management Company: Atlas Residential

Opportunity: Occupier for commercial floorspace

  • £60m GDV residential led scheme
  • 279 apartments
  • 900 sq m commercial floorspace


One of Southampton’s biggest regeneration schemes of the last decade has come to a successful completion, transforming the city's old fruit and vegetable market.

The development is the first BTR (Build to Rent) project in the region and identified as one of seven ‘VIP’ projects in  Southampton's Master Plan.

The scheme includes 279 one and two-bedroom apartments, split across three blocks in an ‘L’ shape.

Nearly 900 sq m of commercial space is split between two of the blocks, one acting as a marketing, management and communal facility for tenants with the other providing flexible space for commercial users or retailers.

Local artist, Daniel Crow of a-space arts, was commissioned to design and install a new piece of public art at Bow Square apartments, where Bernard Street meets Queensway, to commemorate the site’s significant importance.

Taking inspiration from the historic Back of Walls that Bow Square is named after, research has been undertaken on the history of those whose gardens backed on to the medieval wall close to the development.

The conceptual sculpture, consists of a 30-metre Corten wall with stone lattice design and a 4-metre tower with a gateway that will run across the development. The door of the gateway displays the names of those who lived in what was then English Street in 1454.
