The Morgan’s Point Resort Act 2014 came into operation on 27 February 2015 and the Government of Bermuda agreed with the Developer and Southlands Ltd. to exchange land at Morgan’s Point in the Parishes of Sandys and Southampton for land known as “Southlands” in the Parish of Warwick, and the land has been exchanged; and whereas the Developer intends to develop a luxury resort on the land, and additional land leased from the Government, at Morgan’s Point.
BLDC does, however, retain a water front parcel that once contained the Military Bases’ Commanders house. This site is perfect for a restaurant or other customer-friendly enterprise. With the Rockaway Ferry immediately adjacent, pre-established transport links encourage traffic flows.
The BLDC also retains the lands used for Rockaway Ferry parking, the Emissions Control Centre and the site of the Bermuda Housing Trusts’ Dr. Cann Park seniors’ residence.
