Quadrant Wharf shortlisted for new homes award
Millbay’s stunning new Quadrant Wharf development has been announced as a finalist for a major regional award celebrating the South West’s finest new homes.
Completed in 2020, the landmark waterside development continued the multi-award-winning mixed-use regeneration scheme at Millbay, in Plymouth, which is breathing new life into the former docks site and repurposing the land in a sustainable way to create a vibrant and welcoming harbourside community at the heart of Britain’s Ocean City.
Quadrant Wharf’s shortlisting in the Insider South West Residential Property Awards – Large Residential Development of the Year (more than 100 units) category – is the latest in a long line of regional and national accolades for Millbay.
The innovative transformation of Millbay is being delivered by The English Cities Fund — a strategic joint venture between national urban regenerator, Muse Developments, Legal and General, and Homes England – in partnership with Plymouth City Council.
With over £120 million of a planned £250 million invested in the area already, the new coastal quarter for Plymouth is delivering an innovative mix of residential, leisure, business, hotel, leisure and retail development, with high-quality public spaces and direct access to the waterfront.
The completion of the £30 million Quadrant Wharf carried forward regeneration on the eastern side of the historic former docks, following on from the neighbouring and hugely popular Quadrant Quay scheme.
The 137-home development has been thoughtfully designed to make the most of its enviable coastal location, with its apartments split across two light and airy buildings – Aqua House and Lye House – and a selection of cleverly designed split-level homes making up Canola Row. Many of the properties benefit from balconies or terraces with some providing views across the water or marina.
The scheme also continued the new waterside promenade and Quadrant Quay’s award-winning coastal-themed, landscaped garden rooms. And as part of Millbay’s aim to open up the historic waterfront and reconnect the area with the city, a further new pedestrian link was created from West Hoe Road down to the quayside. It was built by Vistry Partnerships.
The Insider South West Residential Property Awards take place on Thursday 9 September 2021 at Exeter University.
