EUROCITY RECEIVES OUTLINE PLANNING PERMISSION

EUROCITY: A VISIONARY NEW DEVELOPMENT FOR GIBRALTAR

EuroCity received outline planning permission at Gibraltar’s Development and Planning Commission meeting on 28 June 2016.

The planned EuroCity residential and shopping complex designed by Jonathan Manser and his team from the award-winning Manser Practice of Architects will provide a quality mixed-use development at the heart of Gibraltar’s central business district. The overall architectural design celebrates communal spaces with curvaceous, free flowing, airy routes linking the leisure, office and residential areas and enabling community access within a public green garden zone.

Chair of the jury for the Channel 4 programme ‘Grand Designs: The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) House of the Year 2015’, renowned architect Jonathan Manser’s thirty years of experience in the design and management of large-scale commercial and residential projects enabled him to develop a creative and dynamic response to Bentley Investments’ brief, securing the bid for this unique and vibrant scheme.

London based Manser Practice was also responsible for the designs for both the Victory Place and Marriott Hotel projects in Gibraltar. This extensive local knowledge and experience further underscores confidence that the contemporary and eco-friendly development of EuroCity will benefit people working and living in the city.

“This is a huge step in the right direction,” said Gibraltar Chesterton’s Mike Nicholls.
