Developers of Celebration Jamaica — one of two companies which received a provisional approved integrated resort development order from the government of Jamaica in mid-2015 — announced plans last week to break ground for a planned 2000-room resort “early in 2016”.
Approved integrated resort status is a precursor to the receipt of a licence to operate casino gaming in Jamaica. The other recipient is Harmony Cove Limited – a partnership between the government-owned Harmonisation Limited, with 49 per cent, and private-sector partner Tavistock Group — a global investment company, with 51 per cent.
Under the terms of the provisional order, Celebration Jamaica and Harmony Cove Limited are required to start construction by the middle of 2016.
