Prof Carlos Moreno throws his support behind Nottingham’s £650m Island Quarter development

An “urban scientist” has thrown his support behind the new Island Quarter in Nottingham.

Professor Carlos Moreno – who created the concept of a 15-minute city where inhabitants have access to all the services they need within their immediate vicinity – told the audience at the latest CC Live webisode that the Nottingham development has all the characteristics to transform the way people in the city live, work and spend time.

The £650 million Island Quarter development will see a 40-acre site near the Motorpoint arena transformed into new homes, grade A office space, creative spaces, a lifestyle hotel with PRS and co-working space, shops and student accommodation.

Conygar Investment Company PLC (LON:CIC) is an AIM quoted property investment and development group dealing primarily in UK property.
