Fletcher’s Slip will emerge as a unique waterfront mixed-use Precinct. Marina berths alongside attractive wharf‐side apartments and terraces will offer the opportunity to live right on the water’s edge with access to the Port River.
Buildings will be mainly three-storey, including over-water development; however there will be an opportunity for five-storey mixed-use buildings surrounding the two public plazas.
Connections to nearby precincts will be opened up with walkways through the area, encouraging activity along paths shared with bikes and vehicles and retaining sightlines from Semaphore Road through to the river and finger wharfs. The newly constructed shared use Loop Path will form part of this linkage.
Housing will extend out over the piers and finger wharfs creating a focus on the marina. A possible sailing club will add to the maritime feel and will create an added tourist attraction.
Marine services, boat building and repairs, chandlery, boat launching facilities and dry docks will front the Port River with opportunities for residential development above. Where possible there will be re-use of heritage elements of existing buildings.
