Project background

The site is being developed as a new urban business and residential community within the city’s Creative and Canal Quarters, creating a safe, attractive, high quality and mixed neighbourhood with its own identity and character. The economic development of the site will contribute significantly to the economic growth of the city, helping to maintain its status as a top ten UK city for growth.

Island site is also providing for the further expansion of the life sciences cluster centred on BioCity, complementing the city’s Science City designation. New office space will help to address the city’s identified shortage of Grade A office space, and provide a first class business location for indigenous and inward investing companies alike.

About the project

The project will deliver known demand for a range of uses including Grade A offices, residential (including build to rent), retail/food and beverage, hotel and leisure.

With the resolution to grant completed in 2019, Conygar will be submitting reserved matters for the likely first phases in 2020. This will include a 200 bed hotel and around 250 residential units, with ancillary retail space.

By creating a new urban neighbourhood there will be a variety of high quality housing, attractive to a wide range of households. It will be well connected to new public realm and open space, and to the network of routes within and beyond the site.
