The planned $90 million Pelican Bay condominium-hotel complex is set to break ground in May, according to the office of Prime Minister Dr Denzil Douglas.
The groundbreaking on May 13 will be followed by an official construction launch in July.
The project, which will include 210 one-bedroom condo-hotel units, is projected to complete construction by December 2014.
Pelican Bay is being developed by a conglomerate including St Kitts-based Surrey Paving, Jamaica-based Sterling Asset Management, Ltd and Contec DT, Ltd.
It will be located on 6.5 acres on Frigate Bay’s Potato Bay.
“Most importantly this development is intended to be run as a condominium hotel, which will offer the island of St Kitts a sustainable and healthy source of economic activity over the medium to long term,” said Charles Ross, director of the project.
It’s one of a host of new projects in St Kitts of late, including the Golden Rock Commercial Park and the planned Park Hyatt hotel.
