Salmon Harvester unveils plans for Kingston mixed use scheme and 322 new homes

A major development, including 322 ‘build to rent’ homes, new retail space, eateries and a public square in Kingston Town Centre, has been placed on the planning table.

Salmon Harvester Opportunity Fund have submitted a new proposal which involves demolition of buildings in Eden Street including Surrey House and the Hippodrome nightclub. The site is close to Eden Walk shopping centre and the Old Post Office, both of which are being regenerated for mixed-use development and hundreds of new homes.

The development will be horseshoe-shaped and 12 stories at its highest point, according to planning agent Carter Jonas.

In their design statement, Darling Associates Architects say: “Such a development will complete the regeneration of the Eden Quarter by extending the retail circuit to the south and in conjunction with the other consented schemes, deliver the additional 1,000 residential units proposed within the town centre.”

They add: “This proposal provides a unique opportunity to transform the currently underused and negative collection of buildings into a vibrant new quarter for Kingston.”

Concerns have been raised about the loss of the Hippodrome, an important part of Kingston’s culture, as was reported in The Guardian last year.

However, the Surrey Comet reported this week that a “six-figure” deal on a live music venue is currently being made.
