Mayflower Halls, Southampton
Completion Date September 2014
Contract Value £35m
Client Osborne / Southampton University
Home to over 1,100 students, three separate blocks make up Mayflower Halls, ranging from 9 to 17 storeys in height.
ArchitecturePLB, working with developer Osborne, responded to the University of Southampton OJEU by first using our local knowledge and contacts to draw up a shortlist of potential sites. The long list included vacant land adjacent to the Mayflower Theatre, offering an excellent opportunity for a city centre presence for the University. Working with the land owner, Terrace Hill, a successful joint bid was assembled for the site which was described by the local Chamber of Commerce as ‘a jewel in Southampton’s crown’.
