Bridgetown could see several new high-rise apartments within the next few years, and a library for heroes from The City.

And if Member of Parliament for The City of Bridgetown, Jeffrey Bostic, gets his way, some money could be made from the controversial statue of Lord Nelson in National Heroes Square.

Bostic, delivering the St Mary’s Church Festival lunchtime lecture in The City yesterday, said three areas had already been earmarked for the high-rise buildings.

He revealed they would be located on the spot of the old ice factory on the corner of Mason Hall Street, where a car park business operates; another lot identified a few metres away; and a property adjacent the ‘O’ Level Institute on Whitepark Road. (SDB Media)
