Inland Homes breaks ground on third phase of Chapel Riverside
Multi award–winning specialist housebuilder and brownfield developer Inland Homes welcomed dignitaries from Southampton City Council to its Chapel Riverside development, on the banks of the River Itchen, to celebrate breaking ground on the scheme’s third phase. The third phase of homes will include 132 one and two bedroom apartments, all with allocated parking and premium specifications.
The phase is expected to be launched off-plan this Spring with completions from Spring 2020 onwards. Chapel Riverside is one of Southampton’s main regeneration opportunities and has an approximate GDV of £100m.
“Welcoming our first residents to Chapel Riverside was a wonderful milestone for us, and now the spades are in the ground for the third phase, we can look forward to meeting more happy residents when this phase is completed in 2020. We’re really thrilled at the progress being made on this exciting, landmark site, and are delighted that our partnership with Southampton City Council continues to work so well.”
Gary Skinner, Managing Director, Inland Homes
“The Ground Breaking ceremony for the third phase of the Chapel Riverside residential development heralds a key milestone in another of Southampton City Council’s ‘Very Important Projects (VIPs)’. Our ongoing partnership with Inland Homes plc is part of a radical scheme of improvement in this area of prime waterfront land in Southampton, and is integral to our ambitious plan for economic growth and development within the city.
“The creation of over 450 new homes at the Chapel Riverside site and a further 350 at the Meridian Waterside development form part of the Itchen Riverside VIP area, which is one of seven key areas re-shaping the landscape of the city, creating desirable waterfront dwellings and accompanying landscapes, improving access, creating new jobs and promoting further investment in Southampton.”
Councillor Christopher Hammond, Leader, Southampton City Council
The partnership between Inland Homes and Southampton City Council has been so successful that it was recognised at the ‘Oscars’ of the national house building industry, the What House? Awards last November, winning a coveted ‘Silver’ in the Best Partnership category.
Inland Homes is also the developer behind another successful Southampton riverside site, Meridian Waterside. Phase one and two of Meridian Waterside are completed and phase three was launched in January 2019. Meridian Waterside is a major scheme of 352 homes marking a new gateway into Southampton via road, minutes’ walk from Southampton City Centre. Inland is building four phases in total, all set within private gardens.
