The development of 44 new affordable is on Queensway, in the fruit and vegetable market area of Southampton’s Old Town.
The scheme neighbours the ‘Fruit and Vegetable Market’ VIP Project, part of Southampton’s city centre masterplan and one of seven key areas for development in the city. This is the first new development within the market district and is championed by the council as a catalyst for the regeneration of the immediate area.
All 44 properties are being built to the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4 standard. Energy-saving features include photovoltaic solar panels, heat recovery systems and high levels of insulation.
