A luxury residential scheme in Chatham has been approved by Medway Council.
X1 Developments, working with regeneration specialist Peel Land and Property, secured permission for the first housing development at the 10.5-ha Chatham Waters site, and expects to start construction this spring.
Positioned on the site of a former naval dockyard, the waterfront development overlooking the Medway estuary will provide 199 one, two and three-bedroom luxury apartments within a single 14-storey block.
The residential project follows a number of commercial projects at Chatham Waters including an Asda superstore, Medway University Technical College and completion of The Mast and Rigging, a Marston's family restaurant and pub.
Peel also invested approximately £5 million of infrastructure works for the project including remediation, flood defence, services and road improvements to The Strand on the A289.
Plans for a second housing development at Chatham Waters are also underway, which will deliver up to 200 one, two and three-bedroom apartments for the private rented sector market.
Financial backing was provided by private equity firm Long Harbour, and will include retail units at the ground floor level, with a waterfront boulevard.
Detailed designs are being prepared before submitting plans for approval this spring.
