Premier tours Pink Beach Club site
Progress at the Pink Beach Club site was inspected today by Premier Michael Dunkley and Home Affairs Minister Michael Fahy.
“I was pleased to see the progress happening at the Pink Beach site,” Mr Dunkley said. “It was very encouraging. It is incredible to witness first-hand the evolution of the site through these regular visits.
“We learnt today that they are already preparing to put the roof on the first building, which houses the kitchen, dining room, entrance hall and 12 guest units. All the walls are up and it is really beginning to take shape.
“Additionally, the beach club foundations are in and construction is beginning on the second block which contains 33 units; meanwhile excavation work has already been completed for the spa and back of house.”
He added: “This is an important development aimed at enhancing our tourism product. This is tangible progress which translates into real jobs for Bermudians.”
Sen Fahy, who has responsibility for the Department of Planning and serves as a member of the Economic Development Committee, added: “The redevelopment of Pink Beach is an exciting event for Bermuda. As the Premier noted, this will result in employment opportunities for Bermudians and will be a dynamic new boost for tourism.
“We will continue to work with those entities who are committed to, and supportive of Bermuda, and I wish to thank Sardis Development Ltd and Mr King for their continued dedication to this project.”
Mr Dunkley and Mr Fahy toured the site, which is being developed by Sardis Developments Ltd, accompanied by developer Gilbert Lopes, company representative Stephen King, Junior Minister of Home Affairs Sylvan Richards and Senator Vic Ball, who has responsibility for tourism development and transport in the Senate.
