Mayor of Southampton joined Crest Nicholson to celebrate the final pour of concrete in the construction of its landmark tower standing at a total of 27 stories
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.
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.”
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.”
