Portwalk Place

Portsmouth, NH
The Challenge

Transforming & Revitalizing Portsmouth's North End

Cathartes developed this five-acre, 500,000 sqft location into a mixed-use development located in downtown Portsmouth, NH transforming and revitalizing the city’s North End.

The Process

Successful master planning and public/private collaboration

Portwalk Place represented a strong public/private collaboration and master planning to ‘heal and reconnect’ the downtown fabric.

To create better access to the North End and infuse the area with energy and walkability, Cathartes created a large pedestrian loop connecting three major city streets with the Vaughan Mall walkway and built the largest underground parking facility in the city. The development of Portwalk residences now provide modern living in the heart of the city where none was previously available, while pedestrian friendly streets and hotels have added new restaurants, office space and increased tourism.

The Results

Luxury apartments, hotels, and active street level retail and restaurants

The final development includes 379 hospitality rooms located in three separate hotels, 149 luxury apartments, 50,000 square feet of active street­ level retail and restaurant space, and 300 parking spaces.
