The Government of the Collectivity of Saint Martin has launched an international tender for qualified developers interested in entering into an economic investment partnership for the development of Marigot Bay Harbor in the island’s capital.
Among others, the project includes the development of some 21 hectares of reclaimed land; the dredging and excavation of a shipping channel; creation of berthing facilities to accommodate small and medium-sized cruise ships, mega-yachts and inter-island ferries; construction of seawalls and other infrastructure.
In addition, the developer is required, under the terms laid out by the Territorial Council of French Saint-Martin, to develop public areas, including parks, parking lots and other public facilities to build on the authenticity and character of the city and ensure local employment over the life of the project.
Developers will have just about three months to respond to the bid. The closing time for receipt of tender offers is noon on October 26, 2016.
The commencement of the development is scheduled for mid-2017.
