On June 12 2017, the Gaston Browne Government will celebrate three years in office.
It swept to power by promising thousands of jobs based on billions of dollars in promised investments.
So where are those investments today? In the week leading up to June 12 2017 we’ve visited the sites on these ground breakings to gauge the progress of work to date.
Our first stop, the US$ 52 million partnership called the LABAHIA Hotel Resort & Condominiums – between the Adams Investment Management (Antigua) Ltd., and the Government of Antigua and Barbuda.
The ground breaking took place on Tuesday, March 29 2016, but as you will learn in this report from Brenton Henry, not much has happened since.
A multi-storied investment planned for this plot of land, will boast 120 one and two bedroom fully furnished self-contained luxury condominiums and several penthouse suites.
We are told the resort will include a 24,000 square ft. futuristic conference facility, a 300 capacity car park area, restaurants, a gym, tennis courts, gardens with walking paths, essential shops and an Olympic size swimming pool for an investment totaling US$52 million.
We were told in March last year the project has already received approval in principle from the Development Control Authority.
The total construction phase was projected to run between 18 – 24 months and work was to begin shortly after ground breaking.
