Re: Re: R&H Hall Development
Origin Enterprises (part of IAWS) is seeking permission to develop their land at the South Docks. A portion of their land holding (1.55 ha) bounded by Victoria Road, Kennedy Quay, Marina Walk and Furlong Road will be developed as mixed use.
Demolition of the two R&H Hall grain silos between Kennedy Quay ad Marina Walk and office/lab buildings on Victoria Road will be necessary to construct the two proposed blocks. The two blocks will be divided by a new street (Navigation Street). The first block (to be known as One Kennedy Quay) will be 7-8 storeys of cafe, convenience store, bar, restaurants, office use and creche on the lower floors with 165 apartments on the upper floors (23 x one bed, 97 x two bed, 45 x three bed).
The second block (7-11 storeys) will contain general office use only. Parking via the new Navigation Street for 413 cars will be provided underground.
It’s unfortunate that they chose to remove the 1930’s office building on the corner of Kennedy Quay and Victoria Road (see images below). Its a very attractive building with many original features, although in poor repair.
Shame as they are great buildings and ptiy that the could not have been incorporated into new scheme.
Hope the Odlums brick building which is superb survives
