The Moorgreen Hospital building was left derelict for many years before Barratt Homes bought the site for a development of 100 new homes. One of the requirements of the planners was that the main early-Victorian building should be preserved and restored to provide accommodation. This 1850 brick and slate building, originally built as a workhouse, has now been restored to provide 19 Apartments and is the centrepiece of the new Pavillions Development in West End, Southampton.
