Waterfront development sets sail


The development of Belle Greve Bay has long been contentious, but a leading international property developer has come up with an ingenious plan which will see a floating village in the bay as early as next year.

The development will compromise 200 floating maisonettes with 100 Open Market and 100 Local Market properties. Spokesman for the developer, Primero de Abril, said: ‘These state-of-the-art homes will possess luxury specification throughout, and more importantly, be carbon neutral. The Open Market homes will enjoy panoramic views of all the islands and the Local Market homes will be underwater.’

The development consists of four blocks with a local theme; Conger Rise, Ormer Heights, Winkle Way and Pollock Place, all connected via floating gangplanks.

Mr de Abril added: ‘We were aware when original plans for Belle Greve were proposed that many existing residents were upset they could lose their views. To get around this we decided that the floating village will vacate the bay first thing every morning, leaving an uninterrupted view of the Little Russel for the rest of the day. Then, under its own power, the development will sail around the island down to the south coast for lunch, ending up every evening at Cobo on the west coast where residents will be able to enjoy Sundowners at the Rocky if they wish.’

Reservations for the development are open from today.
