Development Specialist Richard Carr is spearheading the re-development of Salterns Marina in Poole, which is set to receive a £100m facelift if plans are approved by the local council.
News of the facelift, which has been developed by Richard, proved popular with both local media in Poole and industry publications across the UK.
Revealed on Monday, the news has been published on 10 website with links to all the articles available via the ‘Press’ section of Richard’s website.
The development will transform the current Marina, with a 60 roomed hotel with rooftop restaurant and apartments set to take the place of the current hotel, which is situated on the waterfront.
The plans include a luxury hotel with spa being built on the site of the current hotel, which will be home to a highly desirable rooftop restaurant with panoramic views of the famous harbour.
73 apartments will also be constructed, whilst the Berthing and Marina facilities will be reconfigured to give Poole a world class Marina.
As well as being able to enjoy these fantastic new facilities, residents of Poole will benefit from nearly £3m in Community Infrastructure Levy which the scheme will generate. This money is used by the local council to improve and build new schools and local infrastructure.
Discussing the project, Richard Carr said: “The directors of Salterns Marina are very aware that the Marina facilities are now over 40 years old and that the hotel is even older.
“They believe that the time has come to give Poole a world class marina, a new hotel, spa and a high quality restaurant overlooking our magnificent harbour.
“The timing is perfect especially with Rick Stein’s restaurant coming to Sandbanks in the near future.
“The new Hilton hotel has recently been unveiled in Bournemouth, but this development is very much in the Poole style of surf, rest and play!”
