The ill-fated Sunshine Hub car park on Independence Avenue, which has stood incomplete for nearly a decade, will soon be put to use.
Cabinet has announced that the Government of Antigua and Barbuda has bought the derelict property for US$6 million from the receivers, and is now joining in a public/private partnership to prepare it for use.
A major project of the previous United Progressive Party-administration, the unfinished Sunshine Hub has been described by Chief of Staff Lionel ‘Max’ Hurst as “an eyesore and a monstrosity of a monument of the previous administration’s bad judgment.”
He said the building will soon have portions of its office space built-up and readied for commercial use.
“During the coming month the building will be refurbished by at least 100 workers who will labour around the clock to ready it for occupancy. The East Bus Station area will be improved significantly,” Hurst said.

Dem jus mashup the football and cricket grounds. Hopefully something beneficial will actually come out of this Can’t Park.
My idea on this simple.
Line parking meters throughout the city, (I think private parking lots are charging 2 dollars an hour, the government can do $1). Air mark the structure as a free parking tower. Send numerous police officers to patrol the streets for out timed parkers etc.
Income is generated to the government for those who doesn’t adhere and the eye sore can have some use.
I am just worried that after sitting there for so long that the structural integrity may be compromised.
Wow…. general elections are soon indeed.
Why cant we have elections every year since its the only time that government does stuff.
I only wish the people would realize this and make the government be accountable for a full five year period..not jut a few months before an elections. Its really a shame.
Note if only then can light up the road with some stupid street lights. Just this evening I was reminded how imprudent the light ate when I drove pass the mall base. The lights were properly spaced so there were no dark spots. You could see clearly.
I know my little island can do better, but we got some retarded leaders
Now if only them can light up the road with some street lights. Just this evening I was reminded how important the light are when I drove pass the navy base. The lights were properly spaced so there were no dark spots. You could see clearly.
