Lennox Point is an ambitious and innovative development proposal for a new waterfront neighbourhood in Portsmouth that reconnects people’s lives and work with the sea.

It offers an opportunity to make a step change for the city of Portsmouth; providing homes and employment for local people and bringing investment into the city, to help build a sustainable new community.

Render of how Lennox Point could look

Lennox Point will have a leading marine employment and green marine technology hub (Phoenix Quay) that will reinforce Portsmouth’s place in the heart of the Solent maritime economy.  It will be home to an environmentally-conscious and mixed community who will benefit physically and mentally from living and working at Lennox Point.

This isn’t about opportunities far into the future. In designing and delivering Lennox Point, we will create thousands of jobs and apprenticeships, and will support economic recovery in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
