Harbourside South Rises in Down Town Port Moresby
Harbourside South has started rising out of the Port Moresby Down Town construction site with the assembly of the yellow tower crane.
Steamships Corporate Affairs Executive, Mr David Toua, expressed satisfaction that the construction was becoming more visible across the Port Moresby skyline.
“The current economic downturn caused by necessary Covid 19 restrictions has cast a bit of gloom around the place so seeing a construction site full of activity is certainly positive.”
“There aren’t a lot of tower cranes up at the moment so this is quite exciting for us and for Port Moresby.”.
“The tower crane being assembled has a forty meter jib with a maximum hoisting capacity of twelve tonnes and will eventually rise to eighty meters,” he said.
At eighty meters, that would be as high long as two Fokker 100 aircrafts stacked end to end. A twelve tonne lifting capacity is enough to easily lift three Land Cruisers.
Harbourside South is the latest addition to the Precinct that consists of Harbourside East and West being developed by Harbourside Development Limited, a joint venture between Steamships and the PNG Sustainable Development Fund.
Once complete, Harbourside South will overlook Fairfax Harbour offering leisure, retail, commercial and residential amenities with a safe transit point between Champions Parade and Stanley Esplanade through the overhead pedestrian walkway.
Harbourside Development Limited, is a joint venture between Steamships and the PNG Sustainable Development Program., the Harbourside Precinct is managed by Pacific Palms Property, a division of Steamships Trading Company.
