Construction continues on our East Street development in Southampton’s historic city centre. See our progress in pictures from an eagle-eye view.
East Street, Southampton, is part of a £27m regeneration project in the heart of the coastal Hampshire city. PMC are constructing a mixed-use development of 132 built-to-rent apartments. The development also features commercial space.
PMC have been constructing the scheme for National and Regional Property Group, who are developing the site.

The building on East Street will be constructed of a reinforced-concrete frame and a masonry façade.
This sector of the city has been earmarked by the council as in need of regeneration. Speaking to Insider Media, Mike Harris at Southampton City Council said:
“The provision of high quality apartments in the build-to-rent sector contributes to attracting and retaining talent in the city.”
He added that quality developments “continue to drive the economic growth of Southampton.”
When will the project be completed?
We are now almost 12 months into the construction phase of the project. PMC Construction anticipates project completion in Q4 2020.
