Fresh designs have been unveiled of a project to transform a Northamptonshire town creating 550 jobs and 250 homes.
The site in Daventry will offer a mix of housing, offices and leisure facilities for residents and visitors who come to the town on narrowboats.
An extension to the Grand Union Canal is being proposed.
The proposal is designed to attract a new restaurant, bars, a hotel, cinema, health club and new offices in an area designated as the WaterSpace.
Daventry District Council's economic, regeneration and employment portfolio holder Chris Over, said: "The architects' designs are only indicative, but they show the real potential the site has.
"It will mix homes, offices and leisure facilities, to become a vibrant destination for local people and visitors alike."
The Daventry WaterSpace, located off Eastern Way, will be focussed around a series of mooring basins at the terminus of the proposed canal link from the Grand Union Canal.
Architects and developers are now putting together the draft designs for the area.
