A New Neighbourhood Rises

Discover Horizon, the next evolution of St Helier’s waterfront creating a sanctuary of calm where the city meets the sea.

This exclusive collection of one, two and three bedroom apartments and penthouses brought to you by Jersey Development Company, takes apartment living to new heights with sea views, beautifully designed lobbies and a dedicated concierge service.


A design-led development, Horizon is inspired by its waterfront setting, where all apartments come with private balconies and floor to ceiling glazing, and a large proportion of the development benefits from sea views. Horizon residents will enjoy the luxury of being able to open their balcony doors to fresh sea air and spend the evening with an alfresco dinner or just unwind and take in the view as the sun sets over the bay.

We gained an insight into Horizon’s creation and concept from the architects, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM International); one of the largest and most influential architecture firms in the world, renowned for their iconic buildings, design excellence, innovation and sustainability.  Their vision will set a new standard for the waterfront with a bustling array of shops, restaurants and cafes located on the ground floor combined with a short commute to work, life couldn’t be more convenient.

Apartments at Horizon are being built to frame Jersey’s unique light, capturing the reflections of light on water. As the sun moves through the sky from sunrise to sunset, the natural angles of the development accentuate the light, creating a unique mood. The public avenues and residences open up ocean views of St Aubin’s Bay and Elizabeth Castle, re-framing the island’s heritage through a contemporary new vision.

With modern architecture creating a dynamic new skyline, the waterfront will emerge as a vibrant centre for work, life and play, marking a new moment for this iconic location as Kent Jackson, Design Partner at SOM explains;


“It’s a beautiful location. Overlooking a sixteenth-century castle, surrounded by a marina, I felt it had all the right components to really do something special. The requirements of the project stood out clearly to us; how do you connect the waterfront with the town and then how do you bring a modern approach to the historical fabric of the location?

First we looked at the convergence of the lines from the town to the waterfront which we felt were quite interesting. What we wanted to do is take the old town fabric and then create these three channels or new view corridors through to the waterfront. When you approach from St Helier, you see the stone-faced facade of the buildings, and then when you approach from the marina, you have glass frontage. There’s a duality of the modern and the traditional which we felt was important and helped to better stitch this reclaimed area into the historic town.”

SOM are all about innovation, you only have to look at any number of the iconic buildings they have designed around the world, including the Burj Khalifa, in Dubai to appreciate their Calibre. Kevin Batcho, Project Manager at SOM explains how they are aiming to bring innovation to the Jersey’s waterfront;

“For us, it was about linking the ambition of the design and modesty of approach with urban planning. There’s an important historical context there that we have to respect. On the one side we want something iconic – a jewel with its own identity and then on the other side it has to harmonise with the urban fabric around it.

We’re currently working on ensuring Horizon’s design is not only beautiful but also performs well from a thermal perspective. We design responsibly and keep to certain norms, and we like to ensure that future residents have reasonable utility bills and Horizon is a sustainable place to live – not only for occupants but for the island as a whole.”


Poised to set new standards in luxury modern living, Horizon’s ground level will bring an array of shops and restaurants to your doorstep, creating a whole new lifestyle quarter for residents and locals to enjoy offering convenient, contemporary living, in a stunning waterside location, all within easy reach of town.
