Some of the Largest Property Development Bournemouth projects in recent Times

Posted by tedmark on December 15th, 2015

The West Central Leisure Centre project is undoubtedly one of the biggest Property Development Bournemouth to be undertaken within the borough in recent times. The £50 million leisure complex that will have a large cinema as its main attraction on completion has been a big boost to Builders Bournemouth. The complex that is expected to be finished by 2016 will, will house 2,000 seat Odeon cinema as well as 14 well-known restaurants, including Nando’s, Pezzo and TGI Friday’s, plus several retail stores.

The project, dubbed West Central, kicked off in December last year, with the closure of NCR car park adjacent to Bournemouth Gardens, to pave way for the major construction. Plans for the construction had been in the works for the last five years but were met with several hitches in the initial stages. The lead Builders Bournemouth (Licet) had been trying to commence work on the parking lot since their plans were brought to a halt when the Bournemouth council had placed £10 million for an obligatory purchase order so as to use the space for a central town bus hub. Earlier on, in 2009, the developer had also been faced with difficulties of finding enough establishments to fill the planned complex.

The construction of the multi-million pound complex, which commenced after the town council withdrew its bus hub plans and gave the developer one year to proceed with their plans, has not only created job opportunities for construction professional Builders Bournemouth, but is also expected to create more jobs for the locals who will be working in the restaurants, shops and the leisure facilities, upon completion.

Indeed it has been long since the town saw a Property Development Bournemouth project of this magnitude. The  complex is without doubt the most much awaited cinema as well as restaurant-led leisure establishment that the whole country has seen in the past ten years. It is most likely going to be one of the major attractions of Bournemouth borough.

Perhaps, the only other Property Development Bournemouth project in the recent times that can match the West Central Leisure Centre is the ambitious £100 million worth of building projects aimed at gradually changing the Bournemouth town skyline in the near future. It was launched last year byTerence O’Rourke; an award winning planning consultancy.  Among the planned projects a 172-bedroom 4-star Hilton hotel that will include a “Sky bar and leisure club, 159 residential apartments together with a 120-bedroom Hampton by Hilton hotel and private underground parking lot. At this rate, it is an undeniable fact that Bournemouth town and its municipality is growing at a very impressive rate.

There have been major r projects in Property Development Bournemouth. In the recent times, the West central Leisure Centre is obviously one of the biggest that has sen many Builders Bournemouth benefit immensely
