Highwood’s scheme to develop 35 apartments within a four-storey building in a prominent corner position on Southampton’s busy Cobden Avenue commenced in 2007 and was complete a year later.
Built on the site of a former British Legion club, the
apartment building was handed over to Testway Housing Limited as part of a plan
to provide much needed affordable housing to local residents.
Despite concerns by the local community of a development on the site, Highwood adapted its plans and consent was granted. Today, the building is fully occupied and represents a well-designed apartment block that sits naturally with its surroundings in this busy city suburb.
