In 2016 Orion acquired the freehold interest in two development sites totalling circa 12 acres.  

Orion, in partnership with the William Pears Group, will deliver a new residential development, together with a new 100,000sqft retail park producing a GDV of circa £30m.

The site is located close to the main shipping port of Harwich and when completed the development will further complement an existing private residential estate and retail park.

In March 2017, planning permission was secured for the delivery of 38 private dwellings on their Williamsburg Avenue site in Harwich, Essex. Works are likely to commence later in the year to provide much needed accommodation for local people.
