Plans Approved
     Following a long period of consultation, plans submitted by developers Crest Nicholson for the site of the former Merchants Quay shopping mall on the East Quay of the Main Basin were approved by Gloucester planners in 2009. These showed two linked buildings with 48 one and two bedroom apartments and commercial uses on the ground floor.

Early Progress
     Demolition of the former shopping mall started in May 2010, and work on the foundations of the new building began in October 2010.
