16 Aug 2019
Oceansgate, the new home of marine enterprise in Plymouth and a key player in the city’s role as a maritime powerhouse, is taking another step forward with work on Phase 2 of the development starting shortly.
The contract for the construction of Oceansgate’s second phase is set to be awarded to Kier, following a delegated decision being signed off today (7 August) by Plymouth City Council.
Oceansgate has transformed disused MOD land in South Yard, Devonport, into a marine Enterprise Zone and thriving business development.
Council Leader Tudor Evans, said: “Oceansgate is a fantastic development, and one we’re really proud of. It’s bringing more jobs and more investment to Plymouth and cementing our status as a leading location for marine industry in the UK.
“It’s a unique offering for businesses, with such close proximity to Princess Yachts, the Dockyard and Babcock, as well as to the in- and on-water testing opportunities offered out by Smart Sound Plymouth, a new proving ground for developing cutting edge technologies.”
