February start for Four Seasons

Social Share

Resumption of the stalled Four Seasons hotel project  is targeted for around  February next year.
Touring the Black Rock site  Wednesday evening, Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler  expressed delight at the prospects for resumption of the multi-million dollar upscale hotel and villa  project which has seen about three failed rescue attempts. Though admitting remobilisation would not be easy, Sinckler was confident that all the instruments put in place by government to get Four Seasons back on track had cleared the way for work to begin again.
He told the media “We are very happy as a government to see that the guarantee that we have provided has assisted in clearing the path for this project  to be restarted…Barbadians can get work  and the country gets investment…it is a win-win situation for all the stakeholders involved.
Government has guaranteed US $60 million to the project  from the ANSA Mc AL Merchant Bank in Trinidad and Tobago, boosting  substantial capital already put in by foreign investors. Construction was last halted in February 2009 with access to funds listed as the major problem.
Executive chairman of the body representing stakeholders, Avinash Persaud  revealed that total construction costs  at completion were estimated at BDS $300 million.
