Like three sentinels protecting the marina, the soaring blue glass-clad residential towers at Gibraltar’s Ocean Village have become an iconic part of the Rock’s architectural landscape.
The story began in 2003 when the first tower, Royal Ocean Plaza, became the fastest-selling large scale residential development in Gibraltar’s history. Reaching 16 storeys into the skyline, this inaugural project encompasses more than 100 apartments and penthouses within an idyllic waterfront setting in the good company of retail and leisure facilities.
Officially opening in February 2010, Royal’s successors – Grand and Majestic Ocean Plazas – shared a similar fortune in terms of sales. Unsurprisingly, the development has amassed a host of international property awards beating off some stiff global competition
With 17 storeys, 121 unit Grand Ocean Plaza is the tallest of the towers and accommodates one, two and three bedroom Apartments on floors three to 14; two, three and four bedroom Presidential Apartments on level 15 and sensational Duplex Penthouses on the top two storeys. Meanwhile 16-storey 60 unit Majestic Ocean Plaza houses two bedroom Apartments on levels three to 14 and two or three bedroom Duplex Penthouses on the final two floors. Both towers have undoubtedly the best views in Gibraltar, a mesmerizing vista passing from the imposing Rock, down to the Marina, across the Straits of Gibraltar and on to the Atlas Mountains of North Africa beyond.
Owners have access to an oasis of seven swimming pools, Jacuzzis, tropical gardens, a state-of-the-art Health Club and secure underground parking whilst the marina itself hosts an array of fine dining and drinking establishments, fashion boutiques, Gibraltar’s only casino and the ultimate – a berth for the megayacht.
