15 Minute Video Highlights Work At Dockyard

January 10, 2017

A new 15-minute video has highlighted some of the multi-million dollar work taking place in the West End.

Taking a trip from Watford Bridge to Commissioner’s House, the film charts where money is being invested in making the area an even better place to visit and live.

Joanna Cranfield, the West End Development Corporation’s Business Development Manager, said: “These works have been in the pipeline for some time and have been kick started by an insurance pay-out following Hurricanes Gonzalo and Fay.

“That did not, by any means, cover all the costs which are being borne by WEDCo.. When the work is finished, Dockyard is going to be a really stunning place in which people can work, rest and play.”

    We can a building that’s over a 100 years old, but not one that is 50 years hummmmm

  3. About time says:

    I’m glad to see Dockyard getting this facelift , under the PLP these buildings fell into serious disrepair !

  4. Triangle Drifter says:

    Had no idea so much was happening up there. Excellent.

  5. Cynical says:

    All very laudable, but why was the refurbishment of housing not carried out previously with the rent received from those tenants? Where did that money go?

  6. James says:

    Once complete all we will need is some way of being able to get a taxi from there home. Right now don’t go there in the evening without your own ride home.

    I can’t believe those buildings were let go for so long…this was not just a PLP issue but an area of Bermuda that was ignored under the former UBP legacy. So sad.

    Unfortunately, the roofs are being replaced in a cheap manner. I am not sure how long they are predicting them to last. I hope the insurance companies are on board!

    I am a bit worried that after the America’s Cup leaves, again Dockyard will fall into disrepair! There is such a short season of tourism up there and most Bermudians in the off season don’t venture up there.

    Good luck, WEDCO. I hope it holds good for you.

  8. Thank god says:

    Thank god for the Americas Cup. Let’s hope the idiotic PLP never returns to power.

  9. Mr Watford says:

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank the whole Administration and staff at Wedco you guys are truly doing an amazing job wish you much success in 2017 and Beyond
