A new £100m development of leisure and retail properties and hotels in Bournemouth has received interest from some major industry players.
The former Terrace Mount car park is being developed by Havard Tisdale into two hotels, a leisure club and luxury apartments.
Firms that are already in the running for the contract include Kier Southern, Galliford Try, Sir Robert McAlpine, Mcaleer & Rushe and John Sisk. They have the opportunity to register their interest while the developers wait to be granted full planning permission.
The building work is due to start before the end of this year.
The main four or five star hotel that is being built will include 167 bedrooms, 59 apartments, a skybar, a leisure club, swimming pool, conferencing facilities and a café. The other three star hotel will contain 114 bedrooms.
Harvard Tisdale is also working on a regeneration scheme in Torquay. This redevelopment includes an 80 bedroom hotel, luxury apartments, new restaurants a multi-screen digital cinema, and retail units.
