Worthing Borough Council has given the go ahead for Hanson Capital Management’s £150m Worthing Gateway regeneration proposals.

The Worthing Gateway development is the first major town centre commercial scheme in the region for over 20 years.

Hanson Capital Management will go to the market to find a contractor later this year to meet the schedule to start construction in mid-2012.

Worthing’s landmark mixed-use development, designed by Russ Drage Architects, will include a nine-screen cinema complex, residential and retail facilities, including a new Conference and Exhibition Centre.

Worthing Gateway Summary

• A 9 screen multiplex Cinema (under offer to Vue)
• 260 new homes
• 88-bedroom high quality hotel
• Restaurants and coffee shops
• 50,000 sq ft Sainsbury’s supermarket

John Desmond, Managing Director of Hanson Capital Management said: “This is great news for Worthing’s future prosperity.

“We have had very strong support from residents who want to get the project moving so that the long-term Teville Gate eyesore can be finally cleared away and a new start made on this key town centre site”

He added: “The supermarket and cinema are already under offer and discussions are progressing with occupiers for the Hotel and Conference and Exhibition Centre.

Virtual Planit and it’s sister company Planit have been working for many years with Langtree on this internationally important project. With the Festival Gardens almost complete, Langtree are now turning to the residential element of the development, as this image shows.

In 2007, Liverpool City Council granted Langtree planning permission to develop a residential-led regeneration scheme of the festival gardens which included the restoration of the formal gardens and the development of 1,300 homes. This new dawn for the Festival Gardens has been a long time coming and represents a unique opportunity to create a public park which is befitting the spirit of the Garden Festival movement. The redevelopment work began in February 2010 and will see the Japanese gardens, sculptures, lakes and associated watercourses restored ahead of its re-opening.

Virtual Planit have created an amazing set of images for this wonderful development in the Bahamas. We are presently working on a new website, social networking channels, and a video.

This unique ocean front gated community successfully blends the exclusivity of a magnificent marina with panoramic waterfront and glorious beaches, to offer an idyllic lifestyle – unsurpassed even by Bahamian standards.

There’s an array of exceptional homes and a choice of individual lots waiting for you in Palm Cay, nestling on the south eastern shores of New Providence Island, home of the capital Nassau, in the middle of the Bahamas archipelago of over 700 islands.

Palm Cay Developments, in partnership with August Blake, has characteristically created Palm Cay to exceed the needs and fulfil the dreams of the most discerning homeowner; whether a permanent Bahamian, a regular holidaymaker or an impromptu visitor – dropping in whenever the mood takes you!

Palm Cay is much more than an exclusive gated community of stylish homes. It’s a lifestyle statement.
