The Reserve is a new development in Gibraltar set on an old site: planning permission was recently granted to build a nine-storey residential block at the site of what was once Gibraltar’s old casino building in Europa Road, a readily recognizable building and part of Gibraltar’s social history.
The development by Fairhomes Real Estate, the developers of Ocean Village, has been designed by Morgan Carn Partnership. The Reserve has been described as highly innovative in terms of its incorporation of ‘green’ features making it possibly Gibraltar’s most sustainable building to date. This is because of its unique location with Gibraltar’s stunning Upper Rock Nature Reserve at the rear of the building and the beautiful Alameda Botanic Gardens to the front.
The spectacular views that will be afforded to the fortunate owners who buy the apartments of The Reserve will best most other locations in Gibraltar, and probably further afield.
Gibraltar’s Upper Rock Nature Reserve is the stunning backdrop to The Reserve, the lush slopes forming an area of significance for wildlife as well as an important attraction to Gibraltar’s many visitors. The beautiful Botanical Garden just across the road on the western side of the development is an extraordinary pocket of nature which includes a small wildlife sanctuary as well as play areas for children and an open-air theatre. Not only is The Reserve surrounded by a picturesque landscape, but it will also be treated to spectacular views across the Bay and Strait of Gibraltar.
The Reserve is a site that comes with the challenge of preserving features of Gibraltar’s heritage as well as incorporating protection to the natural landscape. These challenges include the need to preserve the historic water tanks that are located under the building and which have significant heritage value. Designers have taken great care to satisfy Gibraltar’s planning officers with regards to the preservation of heritage features and in the way that the design takes into account its surroundings. With an extensive planting scheme, stepped profile and curvilinear frontage, The Reserve will appear to blend into its surroundings.
The 111 apartments for sale at The Reserve will range from one bedroom to four bedroom apartments and there will be 150 parking spaces provided. The designs provide integrated leisure facilities for residents which will include a landscaped area with a leisure pool and jacuzzis. On the fourth floor there will be a secluded “Secret Garden” which will be extensively planted so that residents can relax in calm and privacy. Residents will also have use of a fully equipped gym with its own heated indoor pool, jacuzzi and sauna.
