Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth Harbour

The development of Gunwharf Quays, a former Royal Navy base at the heart of the Renaissance of Portsmouth Harbour, creates a new waterfront strengthening the connection between harbour and city.

The masterplan and public realm design recognise the site’s unique location and history whilst delivering, in its promenades and squares, a contemporary and robust solution for a major destination.

Gunwharf Quays continues to be a successful and thriving retail destination, reinvigorating Portsmouth and enriching its public waterfront presence.

Gunwharf Quays was awarded a BURA Best Practice in Regeneration Award and the English Partnerships Award for Partnership in Regeneration in 2003.
