Sugar Quay

Sugar Quay is a striking new building planned for Plymouth’s waterfront which will transform the city’s skyline and enliven the under-used eastern side of Sutton Harbour.   

Sutton Harbour Group is developing 170 high quality waterside apartments within a staggered height, 21-storey mixed use building, which will be designed in a distinctive T-shape, enabling the residents of each apartment to enjoy the west-facing views of the harbour, the Barbican, the Citadel and Plymouth Hoe as well as Plymouth Sound.

With its prominent location, unique design, and high quality materials, Sugar Quay will become an iconic building in Sutton Harbour and act as a sentinel to frame the historic harbour of Britain’s Ocean City.

The residences and communal spaces will be generous in size with quality interior finishes.  Every unit will enjoy private outdoor space with either a roof terrace or generous balcony.  

Sugar Quay will deliver high-quality leisure and retail units on the ground floor enjoying spectacular harbour views which will enhance the public domain and transform the eastern side of Sutton Harbour with its new restaurants, cafes, and generous public space, improving the quality of the experience of Sutton Harbour.

Contemporary design has been employed for the ambitious scheme, which will regenerate and enhance this prime waterfront site located just a short stroll from the city centre.

The Sugar Quay site has lain empty for many years and the new plans proposed by Sutton Harbour Group have been welcomed by many, with the scheme unanimously granted planning permission by Plymouth City Council in November 2018.

The new development will offer 7 to 19 storeys of residential apartments laid out in staggered heights above a 2 storey ground floor area with commercial spaces available for retail and restaurant units. The Sugar Quay scheme will also feature a widened public walkway and a new entrance to the harbour front, with enhanced urban public realm to allow the visitors to enjoy the site’s unrivalled position.

Thanks to its design, each of the 170 one to three-bed luxury apartments at Sugar Quay will enjoy spectacular views across the marina and Plymouth Sound, alongside benefitting from the waterfront culture and waterside living opportunities which this new neighbourhood will offer.

There is expected to be high demand for the apartments for sale in Sutton Harbour given their enviable location and the South West facing aspect which each of the attractive new homes will enjoy.

The prestigious address and environment of this dynamic development have already generated widespread interest from those looking for attractive city centre accommodation and new build properties within Plymouth.

The Sugar Quay development also includes a single storey basement car park for approx. 100 cars, with further parking provision being created on two additional levels being added to the nearby multi-storey Harbour Car Park.

Work is due to start on site at Sugar Quay in the second half of 2020, with first occupancies in 2023.
