Southampton celebrates VIP launch of Chapel Riverside

Chapel Riverside launch 1200x600

Monday 22nd July 2019 saw the exclusive VIP launch of Chapel Riverside, the highly-anticipated new development by Inland Homes on the west bank of Southampton’s River Itchen. Managing Director of Inland Homes Gary Skinner was joined by a host of VIP guests, including leading Southampton dignitaries such as Cllr Christopher Hammond, Leader of Southampton City Council, and Sandy Hopkins, CEO of Southampton City Council.

Bringing an outstanding collection of homes to the Southampton waterfront, Phase 3 at Chapel Riverside comprises a luxury collection of 132 one, two- and three-bedroom apartments, with first completions expected in Spring 2020. With many apartments benefitting from waterside views overlooking Southampton’s wide selection of yachting marinas, Chapel Riverside will be a large landmark development when finished, culminating in the creation of a brand-new public realm with a new sea wall and riverside walkway.

Gary Skinner, Managing Director at Inland Homes, commented at the event: "We are delighted to welcome members of Southampton City Council and our key stakeholders to celebrate the exclusive launch of this exciting new development. Our vision for Chapel Riverside is not just to create bricks and mortar, but to create a truly exceptional neighbourhood that benefits the wider Southampton community, and not just those living there. We are pleased to be able to offer residents here a sense of community and belonging, where they will flourish and be able to enjoy a greater quality of life surrounded by a stunning waterside backdrop."

Perfect for a range of purchasers including first-time buyers, professionals and downsizers, the new apartments have the perfect balance of a diverse lifestyle, with access to the fast-paced vibrant city life combined with a slower, more relaxed waterside environment. Whilst playing host to a variety of bustling city amenities such as the Ocean Village marina complex and the West Quay shopping centre home to over 130 shops, Chapel Riverside residents also have access to the beauty of nature, with stunning riverside walks and award-winning parks providing the perfect opportunity to unwind.

During his visit, Councillor Christopher Hammond, Leader of Southampton City Council, commented: "The official launch of the new collection of homes at Chapel Riverside is another key milestone in this development. It was a pleasure seeing the team involved in delivering the third phase of this brilliant project.

"Our ongoing partnership with Inland Homes plc is part of a radical scheme of improvement in the waterfront areas of Southampton. The creation of over 450 new homes at the Chapel Riverside site and a further 350 at the Meridian Waterside development form the Itchen Riverside area."

Chapel Riverside is situated in one of the best-connected locations in the South-East. Positioned close to a number of good rail, road, sea and air links, the development is ideally located for all types of travel. By rail, residents can reach London Waterloo directly in 1 hour 15 minutes from Southampton Central Station which is a short walk away, whilst by road the M27 and M271 connect residents to the rest of the South.

The spacious master bedroom benefits from a contemporary ensuite, with a further bedroom and separate bathroom perfect for visiting guests.
