New images released of mixed use complex near Sutton train station
Here is the first glimpse at new CGI images of the £90m Sutton Point development near Sutton train station.
CNM Estates, the development company in charge of transforming the run down space into a burgeoning public plaza, has released new pictures following a public consultation.
Over two days on February 12 and 13, residents visited the Holiday Inn to get a sneak preview of plans for the site.
The scheme, which could see work completed by 2015, is set to deliver 300 apartments, a 130 bed hotel, as well as shops and restaurants which will centre around a public plaza joined to the proposed tram hub.
CNM Estates' chairman, Wahid Samady, said: "We wanted to take our time and get this right. The months of working with local people, businesses and the council seems to have paid off. I am sure that together we can create a landmark regeneration that the whole town will be proud of."
The exhibition was attended by more than 100 people and many have also visited the virtual exhibition online at www.suttonpoint.co.uk where people can have their say on the development until the end of the month.
Associate director for CNM, James Robson, said: "CNM Estates is very pleased to be investing in Sutton and we are delighted with the response we are receiving to our Sutton Point scheme."
In November it was announced that two massive developments costing £140m were planned for either end of the high street.
The other development, by LXB, will see shops, a hotel and a large Sainsbury's supermarket built on the site of the old gas works site.
It is hoped the two schemes will create 1,250 jobs and transform Sutton town centre.
