Double shortlisting in South West Residential Property Awards
New homes at Wapping Wharf in Bristol and Quadrant Wharf at Plymouth’s Millbay have been shortlisted for ‘Large Residential Development of the Year’ in Insider's South West Residential Property Awards 2021.
The awards showcase the best work carried out in the region, set against what has been an incredibly challenging and fast-moving landscape.
The second phase of homes at Wapping Wharf, delivered in partnership with Umberslade, is nearing completion with its first residents having moved in this year. This latest phase of development, which secured £23.4 million funding from Homes England, has delivered 256 homes across a variety of tenures.
It is a key part of the jigsaw in the creation of a new thriving neighbourhood, repurposing once-derelict land by the city’s famous Floating Harbour, and an important part of the regeneration of this city centre harbourside area.
The £30 million Quadrant Wharf development has delivered 137 new homes as part of the major regeneration project, Millbay, and takes forward the transformation of the eastern side of the historic former docks.
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.
Duncan Cumberland, residential development director at Muse, said: “I’m extremely proud that two of our developments have been shortlisted for these prestigious awards.
“Both schemes showcase the pivotal role new homes and communities can play in the repurposing and reimagining of places such as former docks and harbourside areas. Both projects have been transformative for the landscape, as well as providing much-needed new homes for a wide range of customers.”
The awards, in their second year after a hugely successful launch in 2020, take place on Thursday 9 September at Exeter University.
