Marine Gardens, Bangor

Rapport Architects in partnership with HKR Architects developed these exciting proposals to redevelop the waterfront in Bangor, County Down. The intention is to knit the development into the existing town fabric and draw activity right up to the waterfront. The aspiration is to provide a vibrant, mixed-use scheme which will encourage more visitors to come to Bangor to shop, live and play. We believe that the visitors and inhabitants will respond to this proposed development and engage with the waterside setting.

The vision for the development is to provide a set of unique anchors and attractors to increase the catchment area and prolong dwell time and therefore spend. Destination restaurants, the signature building and cultural uses coupled with the exciting retail offer will provide the attractor functions and a new postcard image for Bangor.

The vision for Bangor is that it will become a destination promoting international best practice for regeneration, water-related recreation, culture, commerce and living. This success will also provide benefits for the people of Bangor and neighbouring communities. By re-invigorating the waterfront we will re-establish Bangor’s reputation as Northern Ireland’s premier day trip destination.
