Long Harbour appoints leasing agents for commercial element of Fawley Waterside, Europe’s first purpose-built smart town

Long Harbour, the specialist real estate investment, development and management firm, and Fawley Waterside, the company behind a £2.3bn development of the same name, have appointed international property advisers Savills and Colliers as leasing agents for the commercial elements of the project.

Located in close proximity to the New Forest National Park and the Port of Southampton, Fawley Waterside is Europe’s first purpose-built net zero smart town, built from the ‘internet-up’, with world-class 5G connectivity and a city-wide IoT system.

Fawley Waterside is part of the Solent Freeport, one of the UK’s newest freeports, offering a huge package of benefits to companies including business rates and tax reliefs, customs advantages and planning, trade and investment support.

Savills and Colliers will focus on these benefits as they market Fawley Waterside’s commercial element, a 1.5 million sq. ft. life science and technology focussed campus. The site also offers occupiers bespoke design and build opportunities that will help them to meet exemplar corporate ESG goals. The location could also assist occupiers’ digital transformation through having access to the smart town’s exceptionally rich data stream and partnership with the UK’s Catapult Network.
