Developer, Tellon Capital, has launched a consultation regarding its revised Bargate Quarter, setting out a new vision for the scheme.
Set on a unique 900-year old heritage site, the vision for Bargate Quarter is to reconnect the city of Southampton and create a place where people can truly explore, enjoy, live and learn.

Responding to the impact of Covid-19, Tellon Capital have revised their plans for the scheme which includes the now-demolished Bargate Shopping Centre. The proposals included new homes along with a significant amount of retail space and a new hotel. Tellon has amended the proposals with the following changes:

  • 519 residential units (287 previously proposed)
  • Approximately 2,515 square metres of retail (7,343 square metres previously proposed)
  • Hotel plans withdrawn in favour of new homes for local people

In addition, the scheme will showcase the latest high-quality urban design, deliver significant public realm improvements, increase secure cycle storage and enhance access to the historic City Walls.

Tellon is hosting a virtual consultation on its proposals and is keen for feedback from residents and stakeholders. The consultation will run on until 2 November, after which, Tellon intends to submit a full planning application.

James Burchell, Partner, Tellon Capital said:
We are bringing forward a major scheme that responds dynamically to the significant impact of Covid-19, which has changed profoundly how people lead their lives. Our response will be to deliver a scheme that is creative, sustainable, green, and deliverable in the current climate.

Simon Hugill, Partner at Stace LLP commented:
This is an important step in delivering a more relevant and sustainable scheme for Southampton. We look forward to our continued involvement in this exciting project.

Stace LLP is providing project management and employer’s agent, overseeing the design & construction stages. Corstorphine & Wright architects, ICIS Design structural engineers, Macgregor Smith landscape architects, and Hoare Lea MEP engineers also make up the project team.
