A planning application for what would be Southampton's tallest building has been submitted.

Allied Developments wants to build the residential 28-storey tower, with 299 homes, at the city's Ocean Village Admiral's Quay site.

The £74m scheme marks the final element of the area's regeneration and also includes two other smaller blocks.

The developer said it has already consulted with residents and expected a planning decision by early 2012.

It is thought the project could bring up to 200 jobs to the city.

Leader of the Conservative-led council Royston Smith said: "This is a great boost for Southampton's waterfront and will bring further life to Ocean Village and valuable jobs to the city.

"I am confident this will have a positive impact on the area, becoming a catalyst for further investment in the future."

Peter Morton, from Allied Developments, said: "The tallest residential tower will act as a landmark and will be the beginning of a new skyline for the city of Southampton."
