Brian said: “When we looked at this area and the development, it pretty well ticked all the boxes. You can walk into Plymouth city centre in really less than 10 minutes.”
Kathy added: “This area is being regenerated and it’s being done in a very nice way. The new sets of houses and the new sets of apartments, they’re looking really nice.”
“People who live around in the area and the houses and other apartments we’ve all become quite good friends. It’s a good community spirit down here.”
Millbay’s regeneration is being led by The English Cities Fund – a strategic joint venture between urban regeneration innovators, Muse Developments, Legal & General and Homes England.
It is creating a new coastal quarter for Plymouth, with an exciting mix of residential, leisure, business and retail development, with high quality public spaces and direct access to the waterfront.
Millbay latest development, Quadrant Wharf, is taking shape on the waterfront and has already seen its first residents moving into their stunning new homes.
Quadrant Wharf continues regeneration on the eastern side of the historic former Millbay docks and follows the multi-award-winning Quadrant Quay scheme.
It features a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, laid out in two blocks and a row of split-level homes. The scheme will also continue the new waterside promenade and Quadrant Quay’s coastal-themed, landscaped garden rooms.
As part of Millbay’s aim to open up the historic waterfront and reconnect the area with the city, a further new pedestrian link is being created from West Hoe Road down to the quayside.
Quadrant Wharf adds to the considerable progress already made in delivering the Millbay vision, with over £90 million of a planned £200 million invested in the area and the first phase of the boulevard – Isambard Brunel Way – already laid out.
Millbay now has more than 400 new homes, new businesses, the new 1,000-pupil Plymouth School of Creative Arts, the 171-berth King Point Marina and the successful Dock Restaurant, all contributing to an increasingly busy and vibrant local community.
