Letter: Vincentian government constructing new city at Arnos Vale
Published on November 16, 2011 Email To Friend Print Version

Dear Sir:

Even though the new Argyle International Airport in St Vincent is not expected to be opened before 2014, plans are already on the way to develop the present Arnos Vale Airport site and surrounding area, transforming it into a fully fledged city. Of all the ULP government projects ever undertaken, this is definitely the one I am most excited about.

When last did a Caribbean country have the opportunity to develop a major city? An international airport is great, but it is only one project. The development of a city involves so much more, including public and business-related projects, culminating in a beautiful mosaic where we live, shop and utilize its governmental and entertainment facilities.

In an effort to avoid haphazard development in that location, after the Arnos Vale Airport is decommissioned in 2014, the Vincentian government has created the Arnos Vale Development Company which is charged with the responsibility of developing this site. The ULP government has already retained a Canadian firm of architects, Diamond and Schmitt, to design a master plan for the 63-acres of land at the airport, which is only 10 minutes outside of Kingstown. This master plan would be produced free of cost, since it is the contribution from Jack Diamond, a Canadian who owns a home in Mustique.

In addition to a market assessment and civil engineering services, the architectural firm will also provide plans for storm drainage and storm water management services as well. They will report on waste water collection, treatment and disposal; water supply treatment and distribution; the availability and internal routing of utilities; and the findings of a study of future traffic conditions and needs.

As far as dealing with the escalating traffic congestion situation is concerned, there are three options available for dealing with the traffic flow between Kingstown and Arnos Vale. The best decision may not be only one, but a combination of at least two of these three options.

Here they are:

(a) Improve the existing road through Sion Hill

(b) Construct a road around the Cane Garden headland

(c) Construct a tunnel under Cane Garden, from Arnos Vale to Harbour Club on the eastern edge of Kingstown.

My personal preference would be to undertake all three options. The cost most likely would be prohibitive, despite the fact that the employment situation and the economy would benefit from that level of governmental spending. On the other hand, performing all three options would also greatly improve the transportation situation and the physical appearance of the island as a whole. In addition to all of this, would be a needed shot-in-the-arm for the growing tourist industry as well.

In fact, I have not heard anyone discuss this yet, but I have already imagined the redevelopment of the Harbour Club area, if and when the underground tunnel is constructed. That particular area of eastern Kingstown is in need of a face-lift anyway, especially since it already accommodates the cruise ship berth.

Let's get back to the city of Arnos Vale, and here is a list of some of the facilities which are expected to be incorporated in the development plan:

(a) a cruise line boarding point
(b) a tourism ferry port
(c) a marina
(d) a sea-front boardwalk
(e) shopping mall facilities
(f) other retail development concepts
(g) multiplex cinemas
(h) government offices
(i) a new modern hospital
(j) a major quality hotel
(k) a condominium
(l) high value apartments
(m) parking facilities

PM details approach to Arnos Vale development
POSTED BY ADMIN ⋅ NOVEMBER 9, 2011 ⋅ 7 COMMENTS
FILED UNDER ARGYLE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, DR. RALPH GONSALVES, E.T. JOSHUA AIRPORT

The government is trying to avoid haphazard development after the E.T. Joshua Airport is decommissioned. (File photo)
KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent – Persons interested in buying lands where the E.T. Joshua airport now stands in Arnos Vale could do so as early as next June as the government moves to develop a city there.

The government has retained a firm to design a master plan for the 63-acres of land at the airport 10 minutes outside of Kingstown.

“If that deadline is met, it means we will be on the market to sell,” Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves said yesterday at a symposium on the Argyle International Airport (AIA).

Gonsalves said that E.T. Joshua Airport would close when the AIA becomes operational – scheduled for 2014 — and the Arnos Vale Development Company will next year begin to actively pursue the development of the Arnos Vale site.

Diamond and Schmitt Architects, a Canadian firm, will produce a free master plan for Arnos Vale as part of the contribution by Jack Diamond, a Canadian who owns a house in Mustique, Gonsalves said.

The government will, however, have to pay the other specialists that the company will coordinate as it develops a high-level land use and urban design master plan for Arnos Vale.

The architectural company will provide a market assessment in addition to civil engineering findings on storm drainage and storm water management.

It will also report on wastewater collection, treatment and disposal; water supply treatment and distribution; the availability and internal routing of utilities; and findings of a study of future traffic conditions and needs.

The government has three options to deal with traffic between Kingstown and Arnos Vale: improving the road over Sion Hill; constructing a tunnel under Cane; and or constructing a road around the Cane Garden headland.

Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves while speaking at a media briefing recently said he now has the plan for the new city at Arno’s vale
Gonsalves said he is busy putting things in place for the completion of the Argyle project, and work can begin and will improve access to the city.
He explained that the windward side is problematic, but noted that on the Leeward side he sign on to the loan last week which will cause some 13 plus million U.S, to widen and repair, proper drains and etc, from hospital road right down to layout.
Gonsalves said the project will cost some 40 plus U.S dollars and should be starting late this year and further explained that the Caribbean development bank is financing that largely.

I highly doubt it.

Now that the Argyle Airport is open, how long until E. T. Joshua is completely closed and demolished?
