Substantial redevelopment programmes are well underway in Southampton which is already having a positive effect on the city's residential and employment sectors. It has been labelled the 'Green City' as, being situated idyllically on the edge of the New Forest, it offers an array of large open greens and parks.
Most of the city centre accommodation is run by the local council but the Watermark WestQuay is currently renovating the waterfront area into an appealing residential location with modern apartments. A two-bedroomed apartment is typically costing around £225,000. The suburbs of Romsey, Eastleigh and Titchfield are popular with families who enjoy a rural setting and the luxury of a larger property but these ofcourse come with a price. All in all Southampton promises a bright future with its buzzy metrapolitan centre full of culture surrounded by nature in abundance.
