-3000 square foot of bespoke-quality office, lab and teaching space for a range digital creative companies and organisations;
-a cultural, corporate events space with a seating for up to 350 people and an expo capacity of 600, with multiple adjoining breakout spaces and café bar;
-a digital visitor experience of touring programmes, screen and installation based work and programmed activity to the enlighten the eager and entertain the expert;
and;
-an exciting and engaging education and outreach learning programme for all. Both on and offsite, for communities, companies and schools, creating a unique learning pipeline from primary through to industry.

Echoing Devonport’s rich naval global heritage of technical and social innovation the Grade II listed Market Hall is part of the city’s central west end PL1 destination, offering coach and car parking with over 50 spaces. With excellent road, rail and bus transport links the Market Hall is immediately adjacent to the region’s enterprise zone at South Yard, the new marine industries research, innovation, production and deployment site.

Well prepared Cyril. Good pictures too. Saved me a job...it'll put my camera out of action for a while. I was thinking about getting around to the immersive cinema. That looks like quite a coup for that area...how well it does there time will tell.
I thought the Mount Wise block was 8 floors... I will get around there in time when there is more progress.

I’m a bit miffed with devonport tbh.

I use a parcel shop that is located in the “new” development. Despite the regeneration of buildings being a few years old - most of the properties are already looking tired. They use a colour render, which looks good new, but quickly bleeds due to the algee from the sea air. The metal canopy’s are rusting, the doors are flaking with paint, and the little gravel gardens are full of weeds. It needs a really good jet wash and lick of paint to the buildings. I be surprised if they last 20 years!

Add that the area is full of street drinkers that hang around Granby Street park (which leads into ocean gate) it’s still an unkept area (being polite)

That's not good to hear new Devonport has aged already although I have said before parts of new Devonport have shades of Estover about it. Estover has aged better though.

It’s not unique to devonport.

All new builds are just utter rubbish. Example of what I’m talking about

Unfortunately soon we're gonna end up with a generation of grotty buildings just like that thanks for the trend for cheap coloured rendered walls. Go back to good old face brickwork buildings I say.

Render is a Plymouth thing

Exeter and Southampton (to name a few that I know of) - all have brick buildings. Plymouth love to render

They have been talking about this for a long time. The Everyman cinema should be open before too long in the Melville Building.

Well, I will put this in the correct thread. News about the former seaman's hotel, to be converted by the Scientology group. There is a Scientology shop still in Ebrington Street that has been there for years. It's shame that this sort of building is not open for general public use.
Also nearby is the derelict former Pot Black club, due for turning into flats...I hav'nt seen if that has started yet. It will help with gentrification of that area. That sort of burnt out shell attracts the wrong sort.

Also nearby of course is the immersive cinema, due to open, spring 2020.

Oh well at least the building will be brought back into use and will be tidied up, even if I don't agree with what the looney scientology group get up to.

The Melville building, Royal William Yard - the roof has been re-slated and windows have been replaced/ attended to. The Everyman Cinema & Hubbox should be open for the spring. The office space looks impressive as well. The courtyard looks like a good place to visit as well. I would have thought hotel space would have benefited the RWY and brought more visitors, as The Bistrot Hotel is rather small.

As for cinema's - the immersive iMax at the Barcode opens within a week, then there is this one (Everyman) and Devonport's fully immersive ones opening in the Spring.

A few weeks ago I mentioned that there was some activity on the old brown bear pub site. Just noticed today foundations were laid

It appears to be a row of terrace houses. Looks alright. Compliments the development opposite, and makes the area nicer

Planning number 19/00296/FUL
