New waterfront retail project

John Doak Architecture is adding to George Town’s thriving retail district with Portside, a 25,000 square foot luxury, duty-free shopping development. Encompassing two levels, it is proposed that the commercial project will be built on North Church Street, across from the Royal Watler Terminal. The traditional-style retail building comprises a series of inter-connected pavilions arranged around a two-storey landscaped courtyard. It will have Cayman-style storefront, verandas and balconies. The project has been created in conjunction with McAlpine Ltd, Apec Consulting Engineers and HNGS.

Construction on Portside is expected to begin in early 2010. Contact John Doak Architecture on 946-3625 or visit
