PORT OF SPAIN INTERNATIONAL WATERFRONT
ABOUT THE PROJECT
This international waterfront project will serve as the model for a future extension of a dynamic pedestrian esplanade along the city’s waterfront. The site is inviting, has pedestrian-scaled elements, and integrates the public plazas with its new buildings. The crisp contemporary structures are inspired by the festive local culture and incorporate bold geometries into a uniquely Caribbean design composition. The office structures have “sail-like” curved glass sides facing the Gulf. The hotel maximizes the waterfront edge with terraces and verandas. The “zero edge” pool on the third floor plaza has spectacular views of the Gulf. Commanding ocean and harbor views are also accommodated by large picture windows in the Grand Ballroom prefunction space. The design was carefully developed through an open approach utilizing the expertise of a diverse group of professionals including local partners. The design and ultimately construction is committed to delivering the project on-time and within the budget. The project recognizes the importance of the site and the design embraces with sensitivity the issues of sustainability and environmental impact.
