Harbour Arch Quay, Sutton Harbour, Plymouth

Work starts on Harbour Arch Quay in Sutton Harbour

Work has started on a unique development of waterfront apartments overlooking Plymouth’s historic harbour and marina, offering luxury living opportunities in Britain’s Ocean City.

Harbour Arch Quay will be a striking new addition to the Sutton Harbour waterfront with a limited collection of 14 two and three bed apartments, including two penthouses, enjoying views over Sutton Harbour Marina and Plymouth Sound. Alongside the ground floor entry, there is space for a commercial unit, such as a restaurant/café.

Leader of Plymouth City Council, Cllr Nick Kelly, was invited to join Philip Beinhaker, Executive Chairman of Sutton Harbour Group at a small ceremony held today (March 1, 2022), to officially launch the start of construction work on Sutton Harbour’s North Quay.

The development of Harbour Arch Quay is pivotal step forward in the regeneration of Plymouth’s historic harbourfront being led by Sutton Harbour Group, with further development to follow such as the much larger Sugar Quay complex.

Sugar Quay, a £60million, 21-storey landmark building on the eastern side of the harbour, will offer 170 apartments, restaurants and shops, and was recently unanimously approved backed by Plymouth City Council’s planning committee, subject to suitable provision of disabled parking being confirmed.

The Harbour Arch Quay and Sugar Quay developments will further transform the city’s famous waterfront, regenerating the long-overlooked east side, creating improvements to the public realm that will enhance this area of the harbourside and make it more accessible and welcoming for residents of Plymouth, visitors and tourists.

Harbour Arch Quay will occupy space between Pinnacle Quay, home to apartments and the popular HonkyTonk Wine Library and Daisy’s Tea Rooms on the ground floor, and Salt Quay House, which is the headquarters for leading South West professional services firms such as Foot Anstey and Bishop Fleming.

Philip Beinhaker, Executive Chairman of Sutton Harbour Group, said: “We are delighted to see work start on Harbour Arch Quay, which will offer new, high quality waterside homes in Plymouth, and continue our work to regenerate Sutton Harbour and establish Plymouth’s historic harbour as one of the finest in the UK.

“We thank Cllr Kelly for joining us to mark this occasion, and look forward to future development around Sutton Harbour further enlivening the city’s waterfront for the benefit of all who live, work and visit here.”

Cllr Nick Kelly, Leader of Plymouth City Council, said: “I am very passionate about our incredible waterfront and so am thrilled to see this scheme get underway.

“The site alone will provide plenty of job opportunities in construction – which is great for local families – and once finished will be a fantastic addition to the harbourside.

“This is a huge investment in our city and will help make our waterfront even more vibrant and attractive.”

Harbour Arch Quay will offer six two bed apartments and two three bed penthouses on eight floors, providing each apartment with corner views in three directions. Apartments will be appointed to the highest specifications and will feature floor to ceiling windows, open plan living spaces and large private terraces.

A ground floor unit will be available for commercial use, such as a restaurant or shop.

Contemporary design is being combined with the use of high quality materials and finishes on the build to add to the distinctiveness of Sutton Harbour’s waterfront, whilst complimenting neighbouring buildings.
