Cockle Shell Bay, St. Kitts – Nevis
The clearing of the construction site for Christophe Harbour has started at Cockle Shell Bay on the Southeast Peninsula. The project will span 2,500 acres with access to six beaches including Cockle Shell Beach, where the work began.
According to Mr. Mark Pavluvcik, Director of Development/Construction for KHT Land Holdings, the project will take 10 to 15 years to be completed. He added that the first phase was to remove the old buildings in order to assess the land for its future development. “Before you can have an official ground breaking we got to tear down some buildings first to make way for the new,” he said on March 7, when initial demolition began.
