Devonport Living City Stage 2 Waterfront Park and Hotel, takes one more step in realising the Council’s vision to regenerate and reinvigorate the city centre through a shared investment in public and private infrastructure. The new public Waterfront Park and privately owned Hotel work in compositional unison – creating a articulate and dynamic urban design form, acting as a highly functional connector between the city and the river, as well as an attractive destination for the community and visitors alike. The elevated ‘pier’ walkway frames the south edge of the park and compositionally extends the horizontal articulation of the hotel to the river – a highly charged attractor in the city. The park is designed along three linear intersecting axis which provide the community with opportunity to explore the park’s new community assets – a roundhouse pavilion, landscape amphitheatre, waterfront picnic shelter and playgrounds with continual reference to the city and river.
