Project of the Week 

Harbourside Regeneration, Torquay

Kay Elliott

Kay Elliott are developing a proposal for Torquay's waterfront which includes 150m of prime water frontage, and creates a unique opportunity to establish a new high quality destination for the region.

The Grade II listed Edwardian Pavilion building, a key feature of the adjacent registered gardens, will be fully restored to become the reception, restaurant and spa for a new 65 bed, 4* hotel situated on the adjacent harbourside. A residential tower, with exceptional views across the bay, forms the termination of the inner harbour, marina and promenade and creates a legible landmark at the heart of the town.

New restaurants and improved public walkways and seating areas will line the revitalised harbourside - encouraging new levels of use and activity throughout the day.

The scheme has been designed to take account of climate change, incorporating flood prevention measures, enhancing the current protection to this area and create distinctive areas of public realm.
