Who Knew Royal Westmoreland Is Building More Condos?

As of the middle of July this year it was reported that 75% of the first phase of the new Royal Apartments addition at Royal Westmoreland were already sold at the pre-construction 20% discounted prices. These condos will be going up in three blocks of 12 condos each ranging in size from roughly 800 to 2000 sq. ft. There are one, two and three bedroom condos with luxury penthouses on top floors of each block.

As is usual in Barbados, no renderings of these blocks appear to be available except perhaps to those who are buying into the project - a sore point with locals who are kept in the dark as to what is really going on in their own backyards. Islands-within-an-island projects like Royal Westmoreland and Apes Hill and others thrive on this secrecy but it occasionally doubles back to bite them in the PR as happened earlier this year at Royal Westmoreland in the episode where even the local constabulary was locked out of the resort. There is no question that calls for Alien Landholding Legislation are directly related to developer shortsightedness and secrecy from the local public in this regard.
