Location: Platinum Coast, Barbados
Status: First phase of construction completed in 2009
TSW was retained to direct the planning effort for an ambitious mixed-use retail, office, and residential development in the heart of the most exclusive resort area of Barbados known as Lime Grove. The development is adjacent to the area’s thriving restaurant and entertainment district and aims to cater to an affluent local residential population and high-end international resort market.
The project led by Bill Tunnell, involved an intensive three-day multidisciplinary design charrette, which resulted in a master plan for 150,000 s.f. of retail/office space and residential lofts above, with structured parking, combined with an additional 60 townhomes, cottages, and condominiums. The master plan for Lime Grove was designed to provide a mix of uses and a vibrant streetscape that would attract a diverse group of residents, visitors, and businesses.
In collaboration with four other design and engineering firms, TSW completed design development and permitting. Construction for the first phase of Lime Grove was completed in 2009. The development has been a success and is known for its high-end amenities and prime location. The Lime Grove development has become a sought-after destination for both residents and visitors, and it has helped to revitalize the area, making it a more vibrant and attractive place for people to live and visit.
