Topping out ceremony marks milestone for Bayside

Bayside Apartments celebrated a key milestone in its construction on 1 October, with a traditional ‘topping out’ ceremony. The topping out marks Roffey Homes reaching the highest point in the iconic development on Worthing seafront.

Ben Cheal, Managing Director of Roffey Homes said: “Progress on Bayside has been coming along extremely well and we hope to be pretty well watertight by the end of the year. Reaching the highest point of the development is a real landmark in the construction process and it was great to commemorate the occasion with the topping out ceremony.”

Stephen and Sarah Reeves, the first couple to exchange contracts on 18 June 2018, were invited to lay the final section of concrete on the 15th floor of the Bayside Vista Tower. The ceremony ended with Ben from Roffey Homes presenting Stephen and Sarah with a magnum of champagne to celebrate the event.

Stephen said: “It was an honour for Sarah and I to be part of the topping out ceremony and see up close how the development is rapidly progressing. It was also evident from walking the site just how impressive everything will be once complete. The considerate design, feeling of space and attention to detail is already shining through and we just can’t wait to move in.”

Bayside has seen huge progress in its construction over the past few months. Not local to Worthing, Stephen and Sarah enjoy receiving regular updates from Roffey Homes and the Michael Jones team, seeing photos and videos of the progress.

Since demolition of the old Aquarena site began at the end of 2017, the development has received a huge level of interest and sales are now at 70%.

Max Harbron, head of New Homes for Michael Jones, one of the selling agents commented: “Bayside is a landmark development for Worthing so we always knew that it would be popular, but the level of interest we’ve received has been extraordinary. It was a real pleasure to invite Stephen and Sarah to join us in the topping out ceremony as the first couple to exchange contracts.”

When complete towards the end of next year, residents will be able to enjoy the lifestyle that Bayside has to offer, including a brand-new promenade café, private heated pool, spa & fitness suite, landscaped gardens and direct access to the sand and shingle beach.
