New Digicel Building Downtown Kingston – A Catalyst for Development?

Thanks to Berette Macaulay / SeBiArt for these great shots!

Here are some great shots by Berette Macaulay of the new Digicel building that just went up on the waterfront in downtown Kingston.

The new Digicel global headquarters will be the most environmentally friendly major office building in the Caribbean using solar power, wind power and geothermal cooling systems.

Will the relocation of the Digicel headquarters downtown will be a catalyst for further development downtown?

I’m hoping that the hundreds of people that will undoubtedly work and visit the building will be eating, shopping and generally spending money with the surrounding downtown businesses, large and small, and not simply staying indoors in the “food court” to be included in the building.

Downtown Kingston has amazing potential. The waterfront views are beautiful, the neighbourhoods historic, the shopping great, and the people warm and welcoming.

It will be encouraging if other companies and government organizations follow Digicel and locate or re-locate downtown Kingston (surely its cheaper to have government offices downtown versus uptown?)

Big up to Digicel for having the vision.

For more on the Digicel downtown building, it’s environmentally friendly features and the company’s plans for downtown, see digiceljamaica.com.

    Since I first posted this code (which I did not write BTW), I’ve stopped using it in fact. Not because I can’t get it to work… but because getting it to work involved more work than not using it at all.Depending on the functions of the theme you are installing, it can crash.

    Burberry Bags True to size, I ordered these online plus they in shape perfectly. They are pleasant, manner, and trendy. I get compliments continuously – I genuinely such as the Burberry Bags.

  19. If you were born in the 90’s, it would probably appear as huge surprise for you if your grandmother and grandfather tell you that they too had a Ray Ban Wayfarer when they were younger. The truth is, besides the simple fact that it’s the prevailing selling eyewear style in the record of restorative, protective and also fashion eyewear; it’s actually just a style that goes beyond fashions. It’s the right dimension that compliments any type of facial feature and also the frames work well with any type of lenses, be they varifocals, tinted ones, single vision and prescription reading. Moreover, the design is definitely very versatile; it’s hip and perhaps when the users are well in their 60’s, Ray Ban Wayfarer spectacles still look totally nice to them. oakley minute 2.0 transitions solfx sunglasses black
