Some update pictures on the work going on at the Port Ferdinand marina site that I took yesterday.

* They diverted traffic to flow over the new draw bridge recently. It still has to be paved though but for now you can drive over it.

Any new developments?

Its hard to get any information on this new project. The developer doesn't have a good website.

I passed down there recently but I didn't have my camera and it was night as well! I can tell you the some of the condo units have started having the exterior finishes. I have no idea how inside the marina looks at present. I know it is hard to get information on this project because there is literally none! At least to tell you anything on the current progress of the project. If I do not go and take pics and look for myself, you guys wouldn't know. I'll try to head down there if I have time soon, in the coming week or so...

Congrats man!!! As to when, I really do not know, I would have to ask a question the next time I head down there. I think if you look at the billboard I posted in the first pic, it says info@portferdinand.com. Maybe email that and see if you get an answer.

Thanks.......

We have been together for 13 years and we have two kids .................so it was time.

If the buildings will be on both sides wont you get alot of noise?.....Every conversation will be heard between the buildings? everything you do will echo.

the same like at resort The Landings at st lucia.

I have always wondered about that you know Milow. The masterplan for the project shows...that residences were to be over there but I am not sur what they are doing now. With the recession who knows if they abandoned the idea...We will have to wait and see.
