London Olympics architectural firm to build Puerto Plata port center
The UK company that was the London 2012 Games official engineering and design provider has been entrusted with the complete landside design, including architecture and engineering for the new Carnival Cruise two-berth Amber Cove Cruise Center in Maimon, west of Puerto Plata city. The US$65 million cruise port will have capacity for 10,000 people daily. The port is scheduled to be ready for the 2015 winter season.
Upon making the announcement, Atkins senior program manager Larry Levis said that the center would have 25 buildings with retail outlets and themed marketplaces along with dining and recreational amenities. He said that the project would feature design themes showcasing the fortified 16th century, the classical-colonial 18th century, and the Victorian late 19th century architectural styles emblematic of the city.
A transportation hub will enable visitors to explore the many interesting sites in the historic region.
