Steamships Trading Company announced the commencement of construction of the Harbourside South project at a ceremonial ground breaking ceremony on Tuesday 15 October.
The quarter of a billion kina project is earmarked to provide a vibrant Harbourside Precinct with a new tower comprising 21 levels of prime residential apartments, retail and commercial spaces, and much needed car parking space. A unique feature of the project will be the air conditioned bridge which will connect Champion Parade to Stanley Esplanade through the Harbourside buildings.
The ground breaking ceremony was officiated by the Prime Minister of Papua New Guinea, The Hon. James Marape, Governor Powes Parkop, Motu Koita Chairman Dadi Toka Jr, and Steamships MD Michael Scantlebury, and witnessed by senior state dignitaries, corporate executives, Steamships management and the media.
The building project is a partnership between Steamships and PNG Sustainable Development Program.
“We are excited about the progress already made by our Principal Contractors China State Construction Engineering Corporation PNG Limited (CSCEC), and the various other contractors involved” remarked Michael Scantlebury, the Managing Director of Steamships.
The Harbourside Precinct will undoubtedly be the landmark along Stanley Esplanade and Champion Parade. The building is expected to be completed by 2022.
