Learn what is expected during the next three project phases.

The revitalization project for the Cais Mauá Waterfront will be executed in three phases. One focuses on the Warehouse Sector with spaces for a design and decor center, dining, conveniences and services, events, and a river terminal. Another included in the project is the Docks Sector, which expects commercial highrises, an event center in the port’s old Refrigeration Chamber, and the Gasômetro Sector, to the north, which will receive a shopping mall. Check it out.

The docks sector will receive commercial highrises with hotel service.
The Edgar Schneider Plaza, with over 4.2 thousand square meters and a restored sculpture made from Portuguese stones, will be the largest of the complex's nine plazas.
The old Port Refrigeration Chamber, opened in 1935, will give way for an event center, for conventions, cultural activities, etc.
The docks sector will also offer parking, with 1,900 spaces.
Four historical port cranes will be restored and receive special lighting.

The old art deco DEPREC building, opened in 1947, will be restored and hold a concept-hotel that will preserve its architectural characteristics.
Warehouses A and B, next to the Central Portico, will be set aside for culture and popular art.

The design and decor areas will be placed between warehouses A1 and A5, with spaces for furniture, utensil, and tapestry stores, art galleries, and dining options with a Guaíba River view.
A6 is the warehouse for events, meeting a growing demand in Porto Alegre to host weddings, business conventions, seminars, auctions, etc.

Warehouse B1 will receive a food court, with spaces for fast-food operations and executive meals.
B2 will house convenience stores, small trades and services, such as lottery houses, tourism agencies, candy shop, etc.

B3 will house the Waterway terminal, to receive tourisim and transportation vessels.
Connecting the Cais Mauá to the Usina do Gasômetro, a shopping mall will be built, as well as a space to interact with the Guaíba River: a new opportunity for leisure, entertainment, and business in the Historical City Center.
