I really like that picture from the park. If Port of Spain keeps on growing like this there is going to be a really nice skyline vew from right there.

Se habla español???

He leido que Trinidad y Tobago inicia un programa de inmersión al español para que el 30% de su población hable español de aquí a 10 años ¿alguien ha oido algo al respecto?

Saludos

Actually both the towers next to the hotel are the same height I think 26-27 floors. They will be the tallest buildings in the country for now anyways
Currently the middle tower (Tower 2) is at about the 12-13th floor the Hotel is almost topped out at about 17-18th of 21 floors and Tower one construction just started probably on the 2nd floor by now.

Also there will be a twin to the tower that has already topped out. From the view in the skyline shot shown it will be to the right of the first tower. Construction is now at about the 5-6th floor.

wow, you should post these proyects in the international forum, so everyone can know about the trinidadian boom that is really amazing. the middle tower looks higher than the left one maybe is because of the render? twin towers then? really cool

Yo no he oído nada al respecto.

@ Trin: Ratoncito asks if there is a new Spanish-language immersion program in Trinidad and Tobago, its objective being to have 30% of the population fluent in Spanish within 10 years. Is this true?

I'm not sure but I think I've read about that somewhere but I don't live at home right now so I'm not too sure. Last time I was there the government was trying to teach Spanish in all schools, this as well as other little things like all road signs now in english and Spanish suggests that this may be true.
