Southside to remain undeveloped – BLDC
A vacant lot of land opposite from the former St David’s post office building will remain undeveloped.
Francis Mussenden, CEO of the Bermuda Land Development Company Limited (BLDC), said the organisation was thankful for insight provided by the community on the property.
“We are pleased to have been able to engage with the community and gather their insights on how they would like to see Southside developed,” he said.
A survey was distributed at a consultation meeting held in April, as well as posted online. Responses were accepted until May 12.
Concepts for the parcel included creating a park, a commercial development, and leaving the land undeveloped.
“We understand that the community would like to see tourism, transportation and retail facilities expanded within St David’s,” Mr Mussenden said.
Building concepts presented for the lot were intended to complement the adjacent building and dock, he said.
Based on feedback, the lot will be left undeveloped, a release provided by BLDC said.
“BLDC acknowledges the importance of green space.”
The presentation made at the April meeting can still be viewed online at www.bldc.bm. Another public meeting is expected to be held later this year.
