ISLAND SCHEME SAILS ONWARD
Richard Hywel Evans Architecture has drawn up these proposals for a new development on the Caribbean island of Grenada.
The scheme - for a private developer - aims to redevelop an area on the south end of the island aimed at the British and American yachting community. The design, which will be built on an area of land that currently functions as a marina, will allow yachts to dock and take advantage of the new facilities.
The project will redevelop a site of 14,361m 2 to provide a total of 70 residential units and accommodation comprising 223 bedrooms on the site. Also planned is a yacht club, with a restaurant and bar and two retail units, all designed to cater for the house owners, tenants and visiting yachts.
Both Hywel Evans and his developer have vowed to only begin construction on the site when exhaustive testing has been completed to ensure the development has a minimum impact on the environment and biodiversity of the surrounding area.
The have also agreed to build a new road, develop a landscaping programme and help fund associated infrastructure as a way of complementing the scheme.
