CallisonRTKL’s mixed-use master plan delivers a catalyst for sustainable growth in one of Britain’s most undervalued waterfront communities.
In an effort to transform Plymouth into one of the UK’s major coastal cities, CallisonRTKL was selected to create a master plan for Millbay, a waterfront district situated in the western part of the city. The plan envisions an accessible, lively and authentic waterfront community with a distinctly European feel. Retail boulevards, mixed-use buildings and diverse public spaces breathe new life into the deteriorating docks and shoreline. The scheme creates a hub of activity and re-establishes key links to the waterfront and its neighboring communities. Street level attractions draw visitors of all ages and price points, transforming Millbay into a vibrant and sustainable new community for local residents.
