With a Gross Development Value of £700 million and investor interest from around the world, the Royal Pier Waterfront development project represents a substantial investment in Southampton and the South Coast of England.
Whilst it is difficult to give precise figures for the number of jobs that will be created, we estimate that about 3,500 will be generated during the various construction phases of the Royal Pier Waterfront development. These jobs will span the entire construction sector, providing employment for architects, engineers, electricians, plumbers and many more.
In addition to this, the new office accommodation and leisure and retail businesses that locate here will also boost employment opportunities. We estimate that these businesses have the potential to create a further 6,200 direct jobs meaning a total of 9,700 jobs could arise as a result of the Royal Pier Waterfront development.
