2008 Waterford North Quays Urban Design Framework Plan
To allow easy access to the 21 years of North Quays documentation, reports and competitions.

This is an 80min. audio visual version of the 2008 official framework plan. It was accepted and published by Waterford Council at the time and is a marvelous guide as to how a balanced and people friendly future for the North Quays should be done. It references a major Venue building, public spaces with frames vistas, bridges, plot ratios, relationship to the River Suir, eco friendliness, street propositions, harbour baths, ferries. Its a pretty great recipe for success. It needs a little updating regarding carbon footprint, higher BER ratings and traffic. This report is pre Viking Triangle, outer ring-road and n25 bridge.
