There’s a big new project coming to Portmore, Jamaica.

Jamaica Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller announced this week that the former Forum Hotel had been purchased by a Jamaican private sector group called Portmore Marina Development for $3.05 million USD.

The group plans to transform the site into a “one-of-a-kind modern residential and commercial waterfront development,” according to the government.

The project is slated to include 75 two and three-bedroom single family bayfront villas, and 120 bay front apartments.

Simpson Miller announced the news during a speech in Parliament called “Moving Forward: Jobs, Growth and Development.”
