Nelson Gate

A key regeneration project in the heart of Southampton

Welcome to Nelson Gate

FI Real Estate Management is working in partnership with Southampton City Council to bring forward a mixed-use development which will transform Nelson Gate, a prominent city centre site facing Southampton Central Station that provides thousands of rail travellers with their welcoming view of the city each year.

Background to FI Real Estate Management

FI Real Estate Management is a privately-owned property company active in both asset and property management – with a £3 billion UK portfolio covering over 11.5 million sq ft – and property development within the residential, retail, office, industrial and leisure sectors.

The Site

Nelson Gate currently comprises three multi-storey office blocks, Grenville House, Norwich House and Frobisher House. Despite much effort, the latter two buildings have remained largely vacant for an extensive period of time. Their redevelopment will bring new residents, business and visitors to the city centre, whilst also creating a wealth of new jobs for local people.

Development Proposals

The proposed development will include a new multi-storey building accommodating residential apartments and a hotel, whilst Norwich and Frobisher Houses will be comprehensively refurbished and re-clad to provide a range of apartments, retail units, restaurants and office accommodation. The scheme will also transform the public realm, with a new public square facing the train station and spacious pedestrian route providing direct access between Southampton Central and Fourposts Hill – all of which will be set within an extensive scheme of landscaping.
