Over 100 delegates attended today’s Derby City Embassy at MIPIM, in Cannes, to hear about the latest investments and development opportunities.
Speaking at a packed breakfast at the world's largest commercial property exhibition, Deputy Leader of Derby City Council, Martin Rawson, outlined progress in moving the City Centre Masterplan forward.
Delegates also heard about a number of key residential opportunities in the city, including the Nightingale Quarter, which is currently in planning.
The plans showcase 500 homes in the Nightingale Quarter, the former Derby Royal Infirmary site, with a mixture of houses and apartments.
Complimenting this, Godwin Developments are in the process of developing 200 new build-to-rent apartments in the city centre. Marketing Derby can exclusively reveal this concept.
The University of Derby Science park was also exclusively unveiled at MIPIM this year. The park, located in the heart of Infinity Park Derby, provides an environment for businesses to connect with each other and with Universities in the delivery of a pipeline of initiatives that turn world class science into new technologies, materials, products and processes.
Chaired by Managing Director of Marketing Derby, John Forkin, speakers at the event included, Andy Cliffe, Managing Director of East Midlands Airport; Greg Jennings, Director of Regeneration, Property and Housing at Derby City Council; and Richard Hall, Executive Director of Strategic Research and Innovation at the University of Derby
