IT will bring in around 200 new jobs and now the new Tesco store in a run-down housing estate is finally starting to take shape.
The Rowner Renewal Partnership is a multi million pound major redevelopment phased over eight years at the estate in Gosport.
Phase 1 includes 219 new homes and is expected to be complete at the end of the year. New residents have already started to move in.
Phase 2 has 101 new apartments including a residential tower, the Tesco and three smaller shops.
The Tesco is due to open in spring next year.
The Rowner Renewal project is expected to be completed by 2017.
