After years in the planning, Poole’s regeneration is finally coming down the tracks, and excitement is mounting. Developers and design teams are busy refining their plans for the various regeneration sites around the backwater channel, and this year will see work commence on the Town Centre’s multiplex cinema, bringing new life to the Town.
The potential for Poole is huge. There is over 60 acres of land earmarked for new housing development, with over 1,000 new dwellings already consented, and hundreds more currently in for planning – all within walking distance of the Town Centre! New developments have the potential to accommodate a full spectrum of age groups. The rise of build-to-rent, which is already big in London, is likely to impact on Poole’s housing mix, offering housing for younger people, and there are plans to build retirement living into some of the larger schemes.
Quay Living Estate Agents are already advising on the marketing of two such schemes and expect to be extremely busy over the next few years as these developments come on-stream. Says Partner, Duncan Challis, “The quality of some of the schemes we are now seeing is excellent, with interesting architecture, good-sized units and great waterside amenities. Combined with the natural amenities of Poole’s harbour, its beautiful beaches and fabulous Dorset hinterland, we anticipate these new developments will significantly raise Poole’s profile amongst both regional and national buyers.”
With offices just off Poole Quay, Quay Living Estate Agents are extremely well placed to market Poole’s waterside properties. They are also one of the few Poole agents marketing their clients’ properties on all the principal third-party property websites, including Rightmove, Zoopla, OnTheMarket and Primelocation. Quay Living welcome new instructions and can be contacted on 01202 683444.
