Where once stood an old shipyard, a new riverfront that will extend for over 2km will be born. The project promises to create one of the best real estate projects in Europe capitalizing on its unique riverfront location and also previews the construction of hotels, a museum and a congress center.
The location will be served by a new river intermodal terminal capable of welcoming the over 9 million commuters that the old Cacilhas Ferry Terminal currently is withstanding and will be ten minutes away from Lisbon’s downtown area.
A new marina with over 400 moorings will take place on the Water City, empowering the Tagus River as a space of identity and define it as a new touristic destination in Lisbon.
