DBJ to create 'Portmore of MoBay' by selling Montpelier land

The Jamaican Government wants an investor to acquire roughly 780 acres of farmland in St James for housing and shopping in order to become &;the Portmore of Montego Bay&;. The Development Bank of Jamaica (DBJ) will invite prospective investors to participate in a controlled competitive bidding process but declined to specify a timeline in its documentation. In April, the late Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries, Roger Clarke, toured the area. He indicated that although the Montpelier lands were primarily agricultural that about 1,000 hectares could be used for housing space. It is a re-tendering of the lands but with a new thrust on housing development rather than agriculture. The sale would become one of the largest land divestments in years.
