The scenery is amazing with those mountains, reminds me of Honolulu. But the city itself appears severely underdeveloped, considering the population of the country. There's so much potential with the setting, Jamaica deserves an improved capital.

You're correct, however, our local private sector has been reluctant to invest in the city. Though, there are signs that new projects may commence this year.

Plus, with a new motoway joining the north (tourist areas) to Kingston, I think this will spur new developments.

Jamaica is a beautiful country, the only regret is that it is a very homophobic country.

Thank you Jaru!

Thanks to you too, BRMTCBA!
Yes. That's an issue, however, change towards greater levels of tolerance will take time.

Kingston set to welcome more cruise ships — Bartlett

Tuesday, February 14, 2017


KINGSTON, Jamaica — Minister of Tourism Edmund Bartlett has said that Kingston is set to welcome more cruise ships, with the next vessel set to dock in the first quarter of 2017.

“We are going all out to work with the cruise lines. I just came back from Miami, where over the weekend we met with representatives of one of the largest cruise lines in the world, talking about Kingston and the restoration of cruise activity in the ports of Kingston,” said Bartlett today while addressing the Kingston and St Andrew Corporation (KSAC).

The minister disclosed that the port of Kingston is set to welcome cruise ship, the Noble Caledonia’s MS Serenissima, on March 5 later this year.

Tewani Adds Parking Garage To New Kingston Holdings

Published:Friday | February 17, 2017 | 12:00 AM

Tameka Gordon

Business Reporter

Gordon Tewani is shelling out US$2 million to build a multi-storey parking garage in New Kingston, which should open for business by mid-April.

"This is a no-brainer because parking is needed in New Kingston," Tewani said of the investment.

At six storeys, the facility can accom-modate at least

185 vehicles. And Tewani is already considering developing another.

"I have another lot, same size as this. So, when this is successful, I'll build another one," he said.

The parking spaces will be leased to companies.

[email protected]

Friday, March 17, 2017

From a new list of 231 cities around the world, Kingston ranks at 153, between Ho Chi Ming City in Vietnam and Mumbai, the Indian megapolis at 154.

The ranking comes from Mercer’s 19th annual Quality of Living survey, which was released earlier this week.

The survey considers aspects such as city infrastructure, transportatiion, reliable electricity and water supply. It is used largely by internatioanl firms in helping them to decide where to invest and how to compensate expatriate company workers.
