The concept for the project is to extend the existing grid layout around Hamilton Square towards the waterfront. The idea is to create a dense urban environment in line with successful inner city areas such as Manchester’s Northern Quarter or Liverpool’s Bold Street. The project highlights the creation of usable green spaces as nodes of a local food production network and attractions for visitors (Winter garden, Hamilton Square, Town Hall indoor market). In order to increase the potential of this strategy, car parks are transformed into market gardens.
