Ellis Williams was appointed to develop designs and achieve planning permission for the redevelopment of Nelson Gate in Southampton, transforming the existing 1970’s office accommodation into an iconic residential and public space. Through positive and extensive engagement with Southampton Council, the site has been re-imaged as an arrival gateway into the city from the Central Railway Station. The existing office buildings and car park will be transformed into 247 residential apartments, 42,000 sq ft Grade A office space, a 224 bed hotel with extensive dry leisure and 14,000sf commercial / food and beverage space fronting onto a new public realm and urban park.

Aligned with other significant investment into Southampton, Nelson Gate will create a truly unique place for people to live, work and socialise.


We are delighted that our plans have been approved and that we can now embark on bringing this fantastic scheme to life. We know that this development, from construction right through to occupancy, will create a wealth of new jobs for local people. Upon completion, Nelson Gate will also bring new residents, businesses and visitors to the city centre. “Our designs also respect the significance and importance of this site, the view of which welcomes millions of rail travellers every year as they pull into the city. We know this is the start of an exciting new chapter for Southampton and want to thank everyone who has been involved in the process to date.
