NASSAU, BAHAMAS — The Nassau Cruise Port’s operator anticipates that it would begin handovers to its industrial tenants in December, noting that the downtown waterfront will ‘materially change’ by Christmas/New 12 months.
The multi-million investment within the redevelopment of Nassau’s cruise port is anticipated to be instrumental in bringing significant economic activity back to downtown Nassau.
The project can even see the development of a new terminal constructing; the creation of an event and entertainment area; investments in retail facilities; and the design and construction of new food and beverage facilities.
Mike Maura Jr, CEO of the Nassau Cruise Port, said: “We’re going to be doing handovers to tenants starting in December. We may have our marketplace tenants being given the chance to settle into industrial spaces and start to get themselves ready for those industrial spaces.
“The identical is going on in our port square area where we have now larger Bahamian retailers and a few food and beverage outlets also. Those industrial spaces are going to be made available to tenants by December.”
Maura noted that other developments comparable to a coral exhibit and junkanoo museum are within the works.
He said: “By December we are going to begin the means of moving Customs and Immigration into the bottom floor of the arrivals terminal. By February next 12 months the amphitheater can be accomplished, huge for us when it comes to elevating the energy and entertainment competence of the waterfront.
“The transportation area can even be available to be used in December. The downtown waterfront will materially change around Christmas/New Years.”
