Young Professionals’ Development In Question

NASSAU, BAHAMAS – More than 1,000 young Bahamians have applied for a piece of land, in what was marketed as a community just for young professionals by the Former Prime Minister.

But that dream may be far from reality.

Today Housing Minister Jobeth-Coleby Davis told reporters there was no plan, but the Davis administration will see how best the project can move along.

Kyle Walkine has the story.

 



It was dubbed the “upscale development for young professionals”- a project held tight to the chest of Former Prime Minister Hubert Minnis.

So tight that information only came out bit by bit as time went on.

Lots worth 150 thousand dollars would be sold to young Bahamians at a fraction of the cost.

But several months later and after over 1,500 Bahamians between the ages of 18-45, put in applications with banking information, could it all have been just an election ploy?

During the press conference, social media was abuzz with one user posting an image of Minnis back in April holding up a “concept sketch” of the area for the development.

Well, when we asked Coleby-Davis if she saw that concept sketch and what exactly did, she think of it.

The application process closed in August and many had gotten their hopes up for the community expected to cover 83 acres of land north of JFK drive.

The lots, according to Minnis would have all the infrastructure in place to make them worth 150 thousand dollars.

Still, the minister said she doesn’t want those hundreds of applicants to lose hope.
