The Grand Pier
AWW created a plan for a proposed £15m pier on Plymouth’s waterfront with leisure space, fine dining and corporate entertainment, a conference centre and a monorail link to the first floor, over a pedestrian walkway. The proposed five-storey structure could also include a marine energy hub,with a floating lab under the pier, rising and falling with the tide, and generating energy which could be used to provide some of the pier’s power supply along with small wind turbines.
The Grand Pier provides an attraction that will be the centrepiece of the waterfront. There is also the prospect the pier could accommodate small to medium-sized cruise ships, and act as a landing stage for tenders from larger ocean liners and for other vessels.
