Luxury Hotel Scheme to Go Ahead in Southampton
Proposals for a £50 million hotel scheme to be built in Southampton have been given the green light by planning officials in Southampton City Council. The new development, which will include a luxury hotel with a restaurant and a rooftop bar, is likely to boost the building construction sector and create new jobs in the city, Career Structure News has reported.
Development plans submitted by MDL Marinas include the building of 82 flats, a variety of shops and restaurants as well as office space to let. Tenders for building construction work are expected to be announced within weeks, as work is expected to begin this autumn.
Managing Director at MDL Marinas, Eamonn Feeney, said: “We are delighted with today’s decision which will enable us to deliver the final stage of the master plan for Ocean Village Marina, and most importantly create a vibrant waterfront destination for the city.”
Director of Economic Development at Southampton City Council, Dawn Baxendale, welcomed the decision for the major development and said that it will bring a lot of benefits to the city.
Ms Baxendale commented: “This is excellent news for Southampton and I congratulate MDL Marinas for getting their planning approved.
“The scheme demonstrates that serious investors believe Southampton represents their future and is a city that is becoming comparable with the best in Europe.”
