EUROCITY

 
Conceived with sustainable design at its heart, the proposed EuroCity residential and shopping complex was designed by architect Jonathan Manser and his team from the award-winning Manser Practice of Architects, providing a quality development in Gibraltar’s business district.

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 379 cars as well as significant motorcycle bays.

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.
