Camper & Nicholsons Marinas has been chosen to lead the development of the new Victoria Marina development at East Cowes on the Isle of Wight, including a 400-berth marina. The proposed scheme includes a boutique hotel and a range of residential, commercial and leisure amenities for the 2.6-hectare site.
Subject to contracts, Camper & Nicholsons will work with Westcourt Real Estate, which is involved in developing the London City Cruise terminal in Greenwich, to redevelop the marina and bring forward detailed proposals for other key buildings on the site.
The selection sees Camper & Nicholsons return to UK shores after an absence of more than 10 years.
Detailed plans for the site are to be announced in the coming months and are expected to include improvements to the Columbine building to create a mix of marine, commercial and leisure space; conversion of the nearby Victoria Barracks building as an inn and hotel; and more than 100 homes. Construction of the marina is expected to begin next autumn.
