A marina, gas station, and more rental spaces are to be created in Fish Bay, Tortola for business development.
CEO of the Skelton Group of companies Ronnie Skelton — a former legislator — told BVI News on Friday that plans for expansion as it relates to increase rental spaces are already underway.
“Right now we are creating about 24 spaces. We are building it so that people can rent them at low cost for their businesses,” he said.
“We don’t have a number as yet but we intend to do the immediate expansion within the next 18 months put an additional $2 million in capital expansion.”
He further said the new gas station will be developed at the location. He explained that the land for the development was leased to private individuals.
Marina also among plans
Commenting on the development of a marina at the location, Skelton said: “Right now we have sufficient lands that we are going to expand on [but] we made an application for some reclamation to see if we can get a long-term development like a marina where mega yachts can dock.”
He said the company is hoping to reclaim between two and four acres of land between the next two and five years.
