CPA implements first phase of Master Plan St. Anna Bay
Published on December 29, 2019The Curaҫao Ports Authority prepared a Master Plan to serve as an actionable strategic document guiding the realignment of waterfront assets along St. Anna Bay.
Always with the mission in mind of putting the waterfront to work for the social and economic benefit of the island, the Curaҫao Ports Authority prepared a Master Plan to serve as an actionable strategic document guiding the realignment of waterfront assets along St. Anna Bay. The Plan is the result of a series of interactions with stakeholders holding roles throughout the community, downtown merchants, and the general public.
The Master Plan covers four areas under CPA administration. These areas include Scharloo and Kleine Wharfs; Otrobanda’s Mathey Wharf; the Waaigat lagoon; and properties immediately north of the Queen Juliana Bridge.
A summary of this plan including a short video can be found on our web page : www.curports.com
Last week, CPA signed a contract with the local company JCC Development N.V., that will implement the first phase of the Master Plan in 2020 . The project is called THE WHARF and will be built on an area of 4,000 m² on “Kleine Wherf” (also known as Kop of Scharloo). The project comprises a complex of 35 luxury apartments with an investment of approximately ANG 20 million. CPA will act as ‘landlord’ and maintain ownership of the waterfront area. This first phase will also act as an incubator and promote development in the surrounding area.
