Project to add 265 homes
With construction already started on the 200 homes at Hope Vespera Gardens in Lancaster, St James, Government, through another private-public partnership arrangement, will be adding 265 homes, which will be available to Barbadians over the next three years.
The $200 million Atlantic Breeze project, a collaborative effort between the National Housing Corporation and Preconco Limited, expected to employ more than 300 people, was officially launched yesterday.
The two- and three-bedroom homes, which start at $290 000, are geared at upper middle-income families.
However, in delivering the featured remarks at the launch, Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley said that despite the setbacks of COVID-19, her administration was determined to provide homes to lower income people for as low as $90 000. (CLM)
