London based developers U&I Plc and Development Securities Plc, are delivering the site as a partnership called Luneside East Ltd.

Lancaster City Council says this is part of The Luneside East Regeneration Project, which will create a new quarter of the city with a mix of housing, commercial space, high quality open spaces and walking and cycling routes.

Much of the land along the river Lune in St George’s Quay has already been developed for housing.
