THE FUTURE OF GIBRALTAR
People make places, but places shape lives too. We take our role as a place-maker seriously. Creating a quality public realm is integral to realising our vision of lasting, living places that people and businesses can enjoy in Gibraltar. Our choice of landscape designers reflects that. We share the same goal, working closely with them to create unique, complementary environments that add value to our developments.
A new benchmark for Gibraltar
Each development we build improves on the last and takes us closer to our vision, building environments and communities with quality of life at their heart. Nowhere more so than EuroCity, our latest milestone development, destined to become Gibraltar’s prime business and residential location. Designed in partnership with the award-winning Manser practice of architects, EuroCity has been defined, refined and planned over the last two years, with sustainability at the forefront of their thinking, and a careful consideration of the right mix of life-time apartments, shopping, office and retail space that will lift the central business district to a new level.
RAISING THE BAR
– Early stage investment is underway
– World-class design and services
– Views of the Rock, Spain and Africa
Situated between Europort Avenue and Europort Road on an existing reclaimed area designated for development, the scheme consists of three lozenge-shaped towers springing from a stepped two storey garden podium concealing extensive above ground car parking and commercial space at street level.
EuroCity is planning to provide 367 new private sector homes, office space lush outdoor gardens for residents, a gym, two pools as well as a launderette, coffee bars and restaurants. Retail and shopping units lining the towers at street level will serve both residents and visitors. Addressing the requirement for increased parking facilities, EuroCity will include parking for cars as well as motorcycles.
One of the key objectives for the project is to create exceptional pedestrian friendly public spaces in and around the buildings. To achieve this, the architects have borrowed from the language of North-African cities to carve a network of open organic alleyways punctuated with cooling, shaded, courtyards that echo the labyrinthine feel of the old city.
EuroCity will embrace the need for more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly construction, with solar panels on the roof, a rain collection system to provide water for irrigation, and a heat exchange system between the building and swimming pools. EuroCity is planning to be one of the first developments in Gibraltar to feature a concierge service, offering its residents laundry collection, food delivery and maintenance repairs through a dedicated app. It will aim to bring a London-standard of property service to the Mediterranean.
