Those of you who have been eagerly awaiting the start of the Royal Pier development will be pleased to see that it is inching closer to being realised! Anything would be an improvement on the current pile of twisted metal and concrete... 

Looking at the schematics on this article, it would be a welcome boost to Southampton's waterfront which has been largely ignored by "recent" developments, including West Quay, which many think should have been made to focus on the waterfront, but which actually faces away from it. It's about time Southampton made the most of this significant part of the city. Bring it on I say!
