The boating life is attractive to many different activities, recreational, commercial, touristic, and residential. The Mediterranean village prototype has captured this life, but curiously, in our hemisphere, marinas are fast-in, fast-out affairs without the lingering leisure life that could surround them.
In this sense, the proposed additions to the marina will be unique in our area. The original Laws of the Indies established by Spain to guide the urban design of new settlements mandated that the plaza should face the harbor as a receiving space, the lobby, so to speak, of the town. Around this plaza will be commercial, entertainment, food and drink establishments on the ground floor, offices for marina related companies on the second floor and residential uses above these.
The plaza is further reinforced as the center by requiring that all boat owners pass through the space on the way to their boats. Because of the distance from car to boat, a golf cart circulation system is provided. Other principal land uses will be a yacht club, recreational areas with pool, full service marina facilities such as a dry stack storage, boat yard and repair, etc.
The architectural design is Caribbean: bearing wall construction with a staccato of windows and balconies, arcades on the ground floor and sloping roofs.
