Keir Property gets planning for its proposed £40m Redevelopment of the old OS HQ in Southmpton

wantspacegotspace.co.uk - Keir Property gets planning for its proposed £40m Redevelopment of the old OS HQ in SouthmptonKier Property has won outline planning approval for its proposed £40m redevelopment of part of the former Ordnance Survey (OS) headquarters in Southampton. Kier is proposing to build 179 homes, 19,000 sq ft of offices and 15,000 sq ft of retail including shops, a restaurant and a pub across 10 acres on Romsey Road.

The company has already developed part of the 24-acre former OS site, which was acquired in 2010 as part of a deal to develop a landmark headquarters for mapping at Adanac Park.

The £3.4m refurbishment of Compass House is now home to a number of businesses including Radio Tactics, HMRC and NHS Shared Business Services. There is still 22,740sq ft available to let with 76 parking spaces.

On the 11-acre western part of the site, Taylor Wimpey has already started work on 193 homes.

The development on Romsey Road will create 150 jobs.

Kevin Dixon, director at Kier Property, said: “We are delighted that outline planning permission has been granted on a unanimous basis for the Romsey Road development. The new homes, offices and retail outlets planned for the site will compliment the office space that has already been developed at Compass House, bringing new business into the city and regenerating the whole area.”
