The lure of Warrens/Welches as Barbados’ fastest growing commercial district is getting stronger.

MIDWEEK NATION investigations this week revealed that accounting giant Ernst & Young is preparing to move its headquarters into an ultra-modern multi-storey building just off the new roundabout at Welches opposite the Automotive Art complex in St Thomas.

Site preparation for the multimillion-dollar building has been going on for several weeks, with personnel and equipment from C.O. Williams Construction engaged in marl compaction and the construction of an access road.

Investigations also revealed that while the new E&Y headquarters would add to the bustle of the commercial area, which effectively now stretches from just south of the Warrens Polyclinic, where a number of buildings offering various health-related services have been constructed, to just north of the Welches roundabout, still more businesses were jostling for a piece of the action.
