PLANS for a new 15-storey block of apartments, office and retail space have been submitted.

The proposed development on the Devil’s Tongue, Queensway will also create a new pedestrianised area adjacent to the Waterport fountain.

Approval for the multi-storey building is set to be discussed shortly by the Development and Planning Commission.

The architects on the project, 1508 London, said they were excited about the development.

“The pivotal location has become a congested setting with traffic and pedestrian movement around the site,” a spokesman said.

“Our proposed design aims to create an architectural proposal that will establish the Waterport site as a destination and ‘gateway’ for tourism and the locals of Gibraltar.”
