Following the significant viability challenges to regeneration created by the credit crunch, HTA were asked to provide architectural and landscape services for the first of the waterfront phases to come forward. The site features a challenging 2-3 storey level change along its eastern boundary, adjacent to West Hoe Road, and will create a template for the future developments along this waterfront section of the Masterplan which fronts the outer basin. The proposals create new pedestrian access from the city centre to the waterfront which will open up access to the significantly upgraded quayside landscape. Our proposals are made up of 102 homes combined with a small commercial space of around 1000 ft,' on a quayside brownfield site of circa 0.8 Ha. The residential element is a mixture of houses and flats with 15 houses, 21 maisonettes and 66 nos. 1 and 2 bedroom flats.
