New images have been unveiled as work continues on the £25m Ocean Views development to build 348 homes on Portland in Dorset. The visual from landowner the Comer Group show how the second phase of the landmark site at Castletown will look once completed.

The Comer Group and Weymouth & Portland Borough Council have been working closely together to take the project forward. One of two former naval accommodation blocks has already been developed by the Comer Group at the site, with 206 flats in its Atlantic House scheme.

Developer Fulca Ltd, a Comer Group company, is set to transform the remaining building into 157 apartments. It will also develop 191 new build homes to the rear – making a total of 348 properties. Site clearance, surveying, some demolition work, the creation of compounds and opening of offices has taken place.

Now, project managers are finalising plans and preparing the site before the next phase of activity begins later this year with work on the concrete superstructure of the building.

Jack O’Brien, senior project manager for the Comer Group, said: “The project is on track and progressing very well. We hope these new images will serve to whet the appetite as we look forward to developing this landmark site to deliver much needed housing for the area.

“We have some innovative ideas for the delivery of the project, which include using modular construction and potential delivery by sea. The support and engagement of Weymouth & Portland Borough Council has been key in forwarding this development and we look forward to progressing the scheme.”
