Anticipating a new development in Hulhumalé?

September 6, 2022 : 3:23 pm

We have got one for you, the Channel Park. The park lies between the connection of Phase 1 and Phase 2 of Hulhumalé, forefront a 50m waterway. Residents who frequent Phase 1 & Phase 2 bridges will be able to easily catch a view of the ongoing works at Channel Park.

A space designed for engagement, interaction and peace; it will be an Island retreat in Hulhumalé. Our architects had great fun designing the place, amalgamating all that’s important – accessibility, sustainability, safety and security of our residents. A bustling place anticipated in the near future; it will add a unique adornment to the Island. F&B outlets, steps ensuing to the waterway, decks for best views of reflective sunsets and sunrises on the waterway that transform to hues of blues throughout the day. To enhance the Maldivian genius loci, the landscape includes  a comprehensive collection of native plants such as coconut palms, small leaved mangroves, hibiscus boninens and tree heliotropes, that easily fit the salty air of Maldives. From anywhere, the Channel Park would look stunning. Our architects remembered to place deliberate seating decks that would capture the best views of the park.

A lot more enjoyment could be found after the development reaches full completion. We can hardly wait for the 14 cafes to choose from, for a bride to be small party, grandmothers birthday celebration or simply to just sit and order a coffee while reading an inspiring book. Skatepark tracks, rowing clubs, playgrounds and waterplay for the sport enthusiasts are also in the plan. For a child or the elderly, it’s an all-in-one retreat. A continuous foot path will be there at two levels, at road level and 1.4m low channel quay wall level for safe, pleasant and comfortable walking. Bicycle paths will be linked to the bridges transport direction for cyclers to take a breezy stroll.

As it should, every urban agenda of ours matches the design and planning of this project. The decks have been completed, and before soon we hope to see the Channel Park come together radiating with life, energy and peace.
