Photos: Construction Underway At ‘Point House’

May 19, 2019 | 11 Comments

Construction is underway at the former HSBC Building on Front Street in Hamilton, which was recently bought by the Green Family who plan to renovate it and rename it Point House.

The Green Family — who also own the Hamilton Princess — said the plan is to make the building “more visually attractive,” with the ground floor to provide retail and leisure space, while the upper floors would be leased to office tenants.

“Botelho Wood Architects have been retained to re-design and renovate the 80,000 sq. ft building. The design brief being to once again make the building the central point of Front Street with a more aesthetically attractive external design while completely reworking and modernising the interiors for both current and future discerning Bermuda office tenants,” a spokesperson previously said.

“It is intended that the ground floor should provide some retail and leisure space, with access directly from street level and offer magnificent views of the harbour. A separate and distinctive entrance will cater for the upper floors, which would be leased to office tenants.”

    People are not exactly coming to Bermuda in droves so what’s the point of creating a massive office building?

    • Toodle-oo says:

      You aren’t the only one wondering that .

    • Dunn juice says:

      They will fill it up, if it’s It not already all rented. They are in the real estate business, theres will be full, but someone elses will become vacant.
      Great location.

    • Question says:

      It’s a private company using its own money to make an existing building nicer looking and more functional, What exactly is there to complain about?

  2. Bill says:

    Nice idea but I agree,

    Go online and look at all the vacant commercial office space available.

    • Johnnyb says:

      Vacant because it’s all old and dated. No serious business is going to work out of a shanty.

    Big buildings always go up before recession ,remember the John Swan building

    My husband and I are coming to Bermuda as fast as we can, we will be there June 23-July 5th. We love the island and the people are amazing there. We visit yearly. We have our accommodations made, Twizy rented, plane tickets purchased. Now just waiting for time to pass. We try so much to get people to visit Bermuda. You should see our home in the states, Bermuda all over the place

    This is exciting !! Huge fan of the Greens !! Always innovative.. I hope they’ve thought of a roof bar / dinner spot. “Hint-Hint”

  6. Joe Bloggs says:

    I wish the Green family success in this endeavour. They are the only Bermudians I know still investing in Bermuda. I hope they know something different from the others.

      Then you don’t know much! I for one am supporting the expansion of business in Bermuda investing in local restaurants and import companies but no one sees that!
