Mr. Lashley also disclosed that there would be more ???high rise’ ventures on the cards. "We are looking at launching, through the course of this financial year, in Eckstein Village, Tudor Bride, St. Michael, and doing a high rise there. There are also plans for another at Valerie in St. Michael," he added.
The Housing Minister revealed that in addition to the 20, two-bedroom units being built at Stuarts Lodge, Tweedside Road, St. Michael, NHC employees would be building 20 units at Fordes Road, also in that parish.??
"That is well under way, and already we have invited and selected, in terms of the tender process, the company to do the infrastructural work, so that would be started very shortly. We are also looking at building 12 quadruplexes?? at Haggatt Hall, and that
will come on stream during this financial year as well," Minister Lashley pointed out.
