OUTER HARBOUR WORKS
The first part of the enabling works package to construct the cofferdam was completed in September this year, and we are now delighted to announce that the main contract to construct the iconic 40 storey Tower, the most prestigious and landmark building on the South Coast, has been awarded to Midgard Ltd.
Phase 1 has been a great success with a majority of the residential now sold and commercial restaurants open and operating well. The final restaurant unit, a Japanese offering from Kiru operating very successfully in Chelsea, is expected to open in the first quarter of 2017.
Midgard successfully built phase 1 to a high standard, and on programme, and will commence construction of the Tower in the first quarter of 2017. The Tower will take 3.5 years to construct with occupations scheduled from May 2020.
The early works will comprise the closing of the cofferdam and dewatering to enable foundations to rise from the sea bed. There will be some more sheet piling to be done, but hopefully that will be shortlived and carried out during the winter season.
