Dart considers parking lot sale for port

The Dart group has confirmed it is in talks to sell a plot of land in George Town for the port project should the development get the people’s blessing in a referendum later this year.

The small slice of waterfront land, a parking lot between the Sandbar bar and grill and the existing port, was encompassed within a design-layout image released by Verdant Isle last week.

A Dart spokesperson said, “We have been approached by the preferred bidder to explore our willingness to make the parcel available for the port project.”

She said government had not been involved in the discussion and no commitments had been made at this point.
