Quinn Estates, the South East’s foremost mixed-use developer with a strong track record in obtaining planning consent on strategic and brownfield sites, have had their planning application for Bardell Wharf, Rochester approved by Medway Council.
This mixed-use scheme is a vital part of the ongoing regeneration within the area; inspired by Rochester’s heritage, Quinn Estates will deliver what is said to be a landmark development in town.
Bardwell Wharf will consist of 121 one-bed and 210 two-bedroom apartments; it will benefit overseeing the river and the rooftops, which will have the historic High Street to Rochester Cathedral insight.
Located just 350 metres away from Rochester train station, residents won’t have to be reliant on cars as the primary transport method to get around. Quinn Estates also have provisions for cycle spaces and an innovative car club scheme.
The developer has built over 2 million sq ft of commercial space and 5,000 jobs for the projects which makes them the most prominent commercial developer in Kent.
Mark Quinn, CEO and Chairman, Quinn Estates, said: “We’re delighted that Medway Council’s planning committee has given the go-ahead to our proposals for this gateway town centre scheme.
“We’re looking forward to working with the local authority in delivering its regeneration vision for Rochester. It’s an area that is already enjoying massive investment, and it’s great to be part of that story. We’re excited to be able to take these plans forward with their support.”
“It has taken a lot of hard work to get to this point, but the end result will be a landmark scheme that will not only fully support the council’s wider objectives for Rochester town centre but act as a catalyst for further investment and regeneration.
