Over 200 Saint Lucians are employed on two yachting-related construction sites in the Rodney Bay area, which in the near future will raise the profile of the islandís yachting sector and provide added up-scale accommodation for cricket World Cup 2007.

The Landings currently employs some 135 workers on its construction site on the Pigeon Island Causeway. Managers of the project say work is progressing smoothly as the islandís biggest tourism investment project is taking shape.

They also report that sales are progressing smoothly, with some 46 units already sold.

In addition, the contractors estimate that some of the 60 units for the first phase of the project will also be open in time for CWC 2007.

By their estimates, the Landings officials say the impressive and elaborate lagoon being constructed as part of the billion-dollar project will also be completed in time for Cricket World Cup.

The other yachting and marine-related property also taking shape at Rodney Bay is The Harbour, which employs 85 workers. Tropical Homes, the company behind The Harbour, says that project too is quickly taking shape.

The Landings and The Harbour are both major investments in the tourism and yachting industry and sector by local hoteliers and entrepreneurs.
