The 400,000 sq ft development by Tellon Capital will feature 24 retail and restaurant units together with five retail pavilions. 30% of the scheme will be new public realm that will comprise multifunctional space with seating, creating a two-sided retail street.
“Bargate Quarter is writing a new legacy for Southampton and with the demolition work making great progress on site we are on track to opening in autumn 2019. Our vision has always been to reconnect the city and introduce an aspirational destination where visitors will have a complete experience including shopping, dining and living. The Bargate Quarter will have space for all sorts of activity and this is one of the most exciting aspects of the development, the amount of opportunity it will bring to the city.”
James Burchell, Partner, Tellon Capital
“Southampton has great potential to expand its mix of aspirational retail and the Bargate Quarter will create the optimum environment for this and cement Southampton’s position as one of the UK’s top retail destinations.”
Damian Sumner, Partner, Brasier Freeth
“The centre opened in 1989 and was a key city retail outlet for many years. The changing landscape of the business district led to its closure a few years ago, and the process of rejuvenating this iconic area is now well underway.
Councillor Christopher Hammond, Leader of Southampton City Council
"Following public consultation, the redevelopment will be a vibrant mixed use scheme, opening up a long hidden area of the city’s medieval walls. We welcome Tellon Capital’s investment in Southampton and celebrate this key milestone, further strengthening Southampton’s role as the powerhouse of the south coast.”
The residential element of the development will include 152 one and two-bedroom apartments within the Bargate Quarter. There will also be 185 student units providing 451 beds.
