    I think there should be a large boardwalk that extends out into the water that could feature a tall viewing tower, concert venue should not on all accounts have luxury flats this should be a place for the people of the city and tourists to come and enjoy!
    Wouldn't the residents of the luxury flats enjoy it, and are they not people of the city?"

DEVELOPERS are being invited to express their interest in transforming Southampton’s Royal Pier district into a world-class waterfront.

The 60-acre site, which is owned by Southampton City Council, the Crown Estate and Associated British Ports, could feature offices, hotels, restaurants, shops, luxury flats, a marina, an 8,000-seater indoor arena and a Las Vegas-style casino.

Councillors gave the go ahead for the latest hunt for a developer to revitalise the area around Mayflower Park back in March. It would see the costly reclamation of the seabed to extend the site.

Councillor Royston Smith, cabinet member for economic development, said: “Royal Pier Waterfront is a unique opportunity for prospective development partners, not only to become part of one of the most dynamic cities emerging in Europe, but also to create a legacy in Southampton for which they can be truly proud.”

The council and other land owners are seeking proposals to ensure a permanent and improved site for the International Boat Show and better public pedestrian access to the waterfront.

Work is not expected to start for two or three years.
